On Wednesday night, however, Charli was dethroned as the most followed TikTok account by none other than our silent yet deadly Khaby Lame, boasting a following of about 143.3 million the last time we checked.

Khaby Lame was born to Senegalese parents on March 9, 2000. When he was one year old, his family moved to a public housing complex in Chivasso, Italy. However, Khaby, despite living his entire life in Italy, does not have an Italian passport or Citizenship. He only has Senegalese Citizenship. Little is known about his childhood as the TikTok star doesn’t speak a word.
In the early days of the pandemic, Khabane “Khaby” Lame was laid-off from work as a factory worker in the northern industrial Italian town of Chivasso, according to The New York Times.
After getting laid off from his job, Lame moved back into his family’s apartment. However, instead of throwing himself into a search for a job, as his father recommended, he began to establish himself and his creative take on everyday things on TikTok under the name Khaby Lame.
Khaby Lame took full advantage of the viral and often absurdly complicated life hack videos that flooded the platform. He started posting wordless reaction videos in response to these “life hacks” and showing easier ways to achieve the task at hand.
For reference, in a video, a life hack expert uses an electric drill, scissors, a syringe, and superglue to craft a toothbrush with built-in toothpaste. Lame responded to the video by simply squeezing toothpaste onto a toothbrush.
