Khaby Lame is a comedy video creator taking TikTok by storm, and his rapidly increasing popularity means he’s even overtaken some of the platform’s biggest creators.

If you’ve spent any extended period of time on TikTok over the past few weeks in particular, you likely will have seen Khaby’s face pop up on your “For You Page” at least once.

Everyone’s seen some of the weird everyday ‘life hacks’ that seem to be all over the internet, and plenty have reacted to them. But this creator’s perfect sense of comic timing has meant his videos have been gaining likes and views at a ridiculous rate.

Whatever the bizarre hack happens to be, this Italian TikToker always has the perfect reaction.

Most of his recent videos have ten and millions of views, and a good few of them even have hundreds of millions, with an incredible amount of likes to match.

Not only that, but his follower count is expanding at an extraordinary rate, currently sitting at 82 million at the time of writing.

According to data from Social Tracker, between May 8 and May 23, he gained over 15 million subscribers, and he’s quickly rising through the ranks.

So far he’s managed to overtake Jason Derulo, Loren Gray, and even Dixie D’Amelio as his videos continue to pick up more attention. In early July, he even overtook Addison Rae, making him the second-most followed person on the platform.


Khaby has definitely struck gold with his video concept, and his content continues to be shared not just on TikTok, but on other prominent platforms, with more people becoming aware of his account by the day.

Some people have even started theorizing that the creator could end up overtaking Charli D’Amelio, who is the only person on the platform with more followers than him, sitting at 119 million at the time of writing.

With the rate of account growth he’s seeing, it definitely looks like it could be possible for him to beat the biggest stars. Many are keen to see just how big his follower count can get.
