He has three siblings. Lame worked as a CNC machine operator at a factory near Turin, before getting laid off in March 2020.

Lame began posting on TikTok during the COVID-19 pandemic after getting laid off.His early videos showed him dancing and watching video games, and were mostly filmed in Italian and included Italian subtitles.

He rose to popularity with his video responses in the form of TikTok’s “duet” and “stitch” features to videos depicting overly complicated “life hacks”, in which he performs the same task, but simple, without saying anything.

In April 2021, he surpassed Gianluca Vacchi as the most-followed Italian TikToker, and, in July 2021, he surpassed Addison Rae to become the second most-followed TikToker.

In August 2021, Lame appeared as a co-star for Juventus F.C.’s announcement of Manuel Locatelli.

Khaby Lame TikTok Fame

Before becoming one of the most famous social media personalities in the world, Khaby was a modest factory worker in Chivasso. He was laid off from his job in March 2020 as COVID-19 shut much of the country’s manufacturing down.

In his free time he began posting regularly to TikTok. He quickly hit on an incredibly simple magic formula. He posted videos that made fun of overly complicated life hack videos that included his now-trademark exasperated sardonic smirk.

His home-made simple reaction videos made him one of the most famous people on TikTok. As we mentioned earlier, as of this writing he is the second-most followed person on the platform behind Charli D’Amelio.

With his meteoric fame, Khaby has made millions from sponsorships, appearance fees and merchandise.

His Instagram store currently sells a variety of products including candles, a popcorn machine, clothing and a watermelon cutter.

Lame Personal Life

As per New York Times,Khaby is not actually an Italian citizen yet despite the fact that he has lived in the country since he was one. Apparently this lack of Italian citizenship has made it difficult to travel at times as Senegalese people can have more difficulty obtaining visas in some countries.

Lame announced his engagement to Zaira Nucci in October 2020. As of 2021, Lame lives in Milan as an expat with his agent.

Although he has been living in Italy since he was an infant, he still does not possess an Italian passport or citizenship, only a Senegalese citizenship.

He has stated, “Sincerely, I don’t need a piece of paper to define myself as Italian”.His estimated net worth is between $1.3 million and $2.7 million
