Lame won over followers on TikTok by creating silent videos parodying other internet clips that are supposedly “life hacks,” but are actually overly complex solutions to simple problems. With a shrug and an exasperated look, he simplifies these “simple” fixes.

“I made videos on YouTube as a child, but only my father and uncle watched them. And it was with TikTok that I realized that I had found the ideal platform for me to upload my self-deprecating and comic videos,” he told HYPEBEAST earlier this month.

“I like to entertain people with my irony. But it’s just a tool to do what I’m really interested in encouraging those who follow me to fight to achieve their goals,” the social media star added.

Khabane “Khaby” Lame 22, was born in Senegal and moved to Northern Italy when he was 1 year old. He first gained fame on the video-sharing platform in 2020. This was after he was laid off at his job in a factory worker during the pandemic.

Next up, he is working in partnership with BOSS to create a limited-edition capsule collection for Spring/Summer 2022.
