Khaby Lame is now the official king of TikTok
The current ruler of TikTok is Khaby Lame. Khaby (Khabene) Lame, a 22-year-old content creator from the Italian village of Chivasso in the Turn area, is presently the most popular user of the social media platform TikTok. Charli D’Amelio, an 18-year-old American content producer who has held the record since March 2020 and presently has 142.3 million followers, was eclipsed by Khaby. The 22-year-humorous old’s videos have amassed a sizable following, making him one of the most well-known and adored TikTok creators worldwide.
Lame has gained worldwide recognition thanks to his short comedic videos of lifehacks. His movies often don’t feature dialog, but Lame is known for his signature facial expressions and body language. He has honed his skills in reaction videos and mocking ridiculous lifehacks. Because there is no dialogue in his short comedic movies, everyone can relate to them and find them amusing. This makes his videos incredibly popular with viewers. Lame’s muted expressions are what he refers to be “global language.” He told Forbes, “I speak a universal language that everyone understands.
Khaby had to return to his parent’s house in Turin, Italy after losing his job as a factory worker at the start of the Covid-19 outbreak. Lame also told The New York Times that while the entire world was under lockdown, he used his imagination to create these videos for TikTok. Although he didn’t get many views, his initial videos showed him dancing, playing video games, and using the app’s numerous filters. When one of Khaby’s videos became viral in November 2020, everything changed. More than 17 million people have seen his first popular video.
Lame would provide a less complicated solution to the issue in response to another person’s pointless complicated lifehack video. By April 2021, Khaby had surpassed Gianluca Vacchi as the most followed Italian on TikTok thanks to a fast rise in his fan base. After surpassing Zach King in July 2021, Khaby held the record for having the most followers on TikTok (male) and was the second-most followed user overall.
Lame has probably made a fortune thanks to his enormous fan base. He has such a large audience that he can charge between $1 million and $2 million for each post. According to Influencer Marketing Hub, depending on the influence of the individual, companies have been known to spend between $200 and $20,000 for each branded video supported by an influencer. Lame has more than 78 million Instagram followers in addition to his TikTok fan base. Iron Corp., a social media firm with offices in Milan, represents him.
