Who is Khaby Lame ?

With more than 148.5 million subscribers, Khaby Lame is now the most popular content creator on the TikTok social network. In two years, he became the star of the platform thanks to his short videos based on his body and face expressions. On 17 August, the TikTokeur obtained Italian nationality.
On June 23, TikTokeur Khaby Lame, of Senegalese origin, became the number one Chinese social network by dethroning Amelio’s American influencer Charli. On 17 August, the Italian media outlet La Republicca reported that he became a citizen of Italy, the country where he grew up. At the age of 22, he has 148.5 million followers on his Tik Tok channel, which he launched in March 2020, all without a single word.

From worker to internet icon :


Before becoming the star of Tik Tok, Khaby Lame, his real name Khabane Lame, had a very different life. Born in Senegal, he arrived in Italy with his parents at the age of 1. He grew up in the working-class districts of Chivasso, a small town in the Turin region. However, he does not have Italian nationality. A factory worker, he was dismissed in March 2020. It was then, in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, that he began making videos about Tik Tok.

“The pandemic had just started, I was bored and had a lot of time ahead of me, so I started making videos about Tik Tok,” he said in an interview for the English-language magazine Forbes. His specialty: making fun of tutorial videos thanks to his very expressive face. He doesn’t say any words in his videos. Thus, the language barrier is not a problem for Khaby Lame. He sends his message by raising his eyes to the sky or by making a gesture of his hands showing that the solution to the problem is obvious.

His bet is successful: his mimics become viral and the subscriber counter goes wild. With over 275 million views, the video where he mocks a tutorial to peel a banana with a knife is one of his best known. His reputation quickly increased and he received a large number of requests for partnerships. He is now based in Milan, where he is part of the Iron Corporation talent agency.

In an interview for the French daily newspaper Le Figaro, Khaby Lame says he draws inspiration from “everyday life” to make his videos. “My only goal is to make authors laugh without offending them,” he adds. Besides, the young man applies, with a few exceptions, not to take a position in public on divisive subjects.

In September 2021, after three football players from the Italian city of Naples were victims of racist screams during a match, Khaby Lame posted an anti-racist message on his Tik Tok account. As a result, he lost subscribers. He also made a commitment to climate in a video published in October 2021. He is shown holding a “Fridays for Future” sign alongside Swedish activist Greta Thunberg and Ugandan Vanessa Nakate.
More recently, in early March, he published a video in which he put himself in the shoes of a Russian soldier on the front lines, making peace with a Ukrainian soldier. Through this staging, he hopes to promote peace between Russia and Ukraine. In the comments of this video, many Internet users accuse him of not taking a position about conflicts present in other countries, such as Palestine.

In an interview for the French football magazine So Foot, the tiktokeur claims to be a “neutral” supporter. “I like different teams,” he says. In this way, he avoids positioning himself on a particular team, at the risk of disappointing those who do not support this team. Is it trying to avoid losing subscribers by not taking positions that can create disagreement?

Beyond Tik Tok :

In addition to conquering social networks, the Senegalese videographer has added several strings to his bow. In February, he becomes the new face of Hugo Boss. On June 18, the brand even announced a capsule collection created with the content creator. In addition to creating videos Khaby Lame is also making its place in the fashion industry.

In May 2022, Khaby Lame is invited to the Cannes Film Festival to be part of the #TikTokShortFilm jury. The platform was the official partner of this edition of the festival. That’s why a competition of short format works was organized. In Le Figaro, he also evokes his dreams of cinema. “I have to admit that my ultimate dream would be to be consecrated to Hollywood by an Oscar after receiving the Golden Palm at the Festival,” the tiktokeur explains. Will his mimics, become his trademark, soon find themselves on the big screen?
