There are stories that inspire and then there is the one of Khabane Lame, which from working in a factory has become the third tiktoker with the highest number of followers on the platform. Many dances need other illustrious users to reach such figures.
The last thing about the popular character is to get together with –drum roll– J Balvin and Skrillex. At this point we don’t know if the honor is the artists’ or the digital creator’s. At 22, Khaby Lame surpasses 80 million followers on TikTok. That’s a lot of zeros and 30 million more than J Balvin has on Instagram.
But the nice thing is to delve into Lame’s past to learn a more emotional story than the end of ‘Noa’s Diary’. The young Senegalese started uploading videos to TikTok during the pandemic and after being fired from his job. From a small apartment in Italy he has ended up dominating the whole world with his clips.
Is it a bird Is it an airplane? No, it’s Lame’s career, which as soon as you say goodbye you see him on a yacht next to the Kardashians. His normality and his gestures have caused a furor. The guy has broken the Internet without even talking, a living meme that he says it all through his expressions.
That muteness made him ascend quickly to the Olympus of influencers. Although he started his adventures on TikTok speaking in Italian, it didn’t quite explode until he just said nothing. His humor is a universal language and for all audiences.
Its astronomical figures speak for themselves and are truly madness. On April 2 of this same year he celebrated on Instagram his 2 million followers on Tik Tok, a week later he thanked for having surpassed three and on May 22nd it was already going for the 54 million followers.
The poor man is not giving him time to digest such growth. And it is that his famous gesture is going around the world and not only J Balvin has cast his eye. Sound like a certain Mark Zuckerberg? The Facebook booster is also a big fan of the Italian.
Starring on the cover of the new Skrillex with J Balvin is a tiny achievement of all those who will most likely come. It is very close to snatching the second place from Addison Rae, the second most followed tiktoker on the social network, and with productions without ornaments or large editions. That’s called shine for oneself.
