TikTok sensation Khabane Lame, famously known as Khaby Lame, gained popularity online once videos of him reacting to pointless life hacks and DIY videos blew up on the internet. He became an internet muse as he never spoke a word in his TikTok videos yet became one of the most popular content creators.

Khaby Lame currently holds over 114 million followers on the video-sharing platform. He has also surpassed the second most followed TikTok star, Addison Rae. The Senegal-native currently stands as Charli D’Amelio’s competition, who is the most followed TikToker in the world.

Lame was originally laid off from the factory he was working in as the pandemic took a toll on several companies financially. Since then, the 21-year-old began creating TikTok videos to keep himself entertained. His sarcastic expressions, along with meaningful hand gestures, managed to create a multimillion-dollar fortune for himself.

Not only has he surpassed Addison Rae on TikTok, but he has also amassed more followers than popular, controversial TikToker Bella Poarch.
