Khaby Lame is a super popular guy on TikTok, the app where people share short videos. He’s from Senegal but grew up in Italy, in a place called Chivasso near Turin. Life wasn’t always easy for him, but he found a silver lining during tough times. When the COVID-19 pandemic happened, he lost his job and, like many others, had to stay home.
That’s when he decided to start making videos on TikTok. He didn’t need words to make people laugh; he just used funny faces and gestures to react to things he thought were silly. His unique style made him super popular, and by June 2022, he became the number one TikTok star with more followers than anyone else on the platform, even beating the previous champ, Charlie D’Amelio.
He also became an Italian citizen in 2022, got to judge on a Disney+ show called Italia’s Got Talent, and even teamed up with the fashion brand Hugo Boss.
