Khaby Lame, a 22-year-old Senegalese-born creator, became the most-followed person on TikTok last night, surpassing American TikTok star Charli D’Amelio, who formerly had the distinction.
Lame has managed to gather 142.6 million subscribers through witty videos in which the guy debunks popular tips. Khaby became famous by accident: In the spring of 2020, he lost his job at a factory because of a pandemic.
Out of boredom, the young man began making short videos in which he mocked popular useless “life hacks”. Within a few months, he became one of the most popular bloggers on TikTok: 142.6 million people subscribe to his page today. His popularity is phenomenal in many ways: he does not have a team of producers or marketers, and he has never bought advertising or tweaked subscribers.
