TikTok star Khaby Lame has become the SECOND most-followed person on the social media platform.
You probably know Khaby Lame from TikTok, as he has over 86.2 million followers on the platform. With this startling number of supporters, the 21-year-old recently became the second most-followed TikToker, as per The Mind Unleashed.
The Senegalese-Italian social media personality started his TikTok account last year, shortly after losing his job as a factory worker. Today, “the Everyman of the Internet” as the New York Times called him, is one of the most admired online personalities thanks to his witty TikToks revealing how unreasonable life hack videos can be.
Sorry guys I didn’t realize there was a hole in my sock 🙈😂🕳🧦
With his impressive amount of followers, Lame could easily take the first place away from Charli D’Amelio, who currently holds the record with over 119 million supporters.
Khaby gained his massive fanbase by posting sarcastic videos challenging the ridiculously complicated online life hacks.
Internet creator analyst Samir Chaudry commented:
“His content almost debunks or mocks the overproduced trends that happen across social media, whether it’s life hacks or other things like that. He almost represents this authenticity over production. I think that’s very appealing at scale to people, this feeling of someone not trying too hard, it’s something that feels authentic.”
Speaking to the Times, the popular TikToker, who claims his famous shrug is a “global language,” said:
“It’s my face and my expressions which make people laugh.”
