Khaby Lame passes 100M TikTok followers, closes in on Charli D’Amelio

Well-known for his silent reactions to silly viral life hacks (that don’t really make life easier), TikToker Khaby Lame surpassed 80 million followers just last month, taking Addison Rae’s spot as the second most-followed influencer on TikTok by around a 20-million follower margin.

But recently he’s been getting a lot more followers and surpassed 100 million followers earlier last week.

Charli D’Amelio is still in the top spot with 122 million followers, but Khaby might be closing in since he’s only below her by about 20 million followers. His Social Blade stats show that he went up by half a million followers in just one day, which puts his average at around 416,000 new followers daily. 

Khaby started making videos on TikTok in March 2020 while Italy was on lockdown and after losing his job due to the COVID-19 pandemic. With a desire to make people laugh, Khaby decided to start a TikTok page and post funny videos.
