Khaby Lame dethrones Charli D’Amelio as the most-followed TikTok creator

Quick Summary

Just in time for VidCon, TikTok has a new most-followed creator on the platform: Khaby Lame, a 22-year-old from Senegal who rose to fame by stitching and dueting other TikToks, wordlessly fixing viral “life hacks” that didn’t initially work.

As of yesterday, Khaby Lame has 142.

For now — until TikTok rolls out better monetization options for creators — most opportunities to capitalize on the fame built there happen off-platform.
