Comedy TikToker Khaby Lame is on track to overtake Charli D’Amelio and become TikTok’s most-followed account, as he continues to accrue new followers at break-neck speed.

Ever since she started uploading videos to TikTok in 2019, 17-year-old Charli D’Amelio has been on a non-stop rise to success.

As her follower count grows, so does her career, and along with sister Dixie D’Amelio, she has gone on to make some huge moves in the entertainment industry, becoming a widely recognized name.

She also became the first account to reach 100 million followers in November 2020, but is no longer the only person to have achieved that milestone. Khaby Lame is right behind her.

Khaby Lame set to overtake Charli D’Amelio

Khabane Lame is a comedy TikToker who has become a very familiar face on the app, thanks to his videos in which he reacts to some of the weirdest ‘life hack’ videos on the internet.

His videos regularly get tens of millions, if not hundreds of millions of views, with viewers loving his wordless reactions.

The TikToker is gaining followers at an insane rate, with 132 million at the time of writing. He overtook social media sensation Addison Rae in early July to become the second most followed account on the entire platform.

And he’s showing no signs of slowing down. According to data from Social Tracker, Khaby is averaging around 2.4 million new followers each month. Meanwhile, Charli is gaining around 2 million per month.

Charli currently sits at around 136 million followers, and at the rate Khaby’s going, he could be taking Charli’s top spot soon. Hundreds of commenters underneath Khaby’s videos are trying to rally more people to follow the comedy creator in order to beat Charli, so the gap may even end up closing quicker than expected.

However, there’s also the possibility that Charli’s fanbase will try to keep their favorite TikToker in top spot and widen the follower gap even further, so right now it’s all to play for.
