Khabane Lame Fun Facts
Now that we know the basic stuff about Khabane Lame, it’s time to get a bit more in-depth and check out some fun and interesting facts about him.
So to start with the most curious fact about Khaby, you need to know that his comedy is never worded, just shown using facial expressions. That’s amazing for a comedian to gain so much fame without saying anything.
Another fun fact about him is that his uncle is none other than the great and amazing hip-hop artist, Snoop Dogg.
He was born in Senegal but to Italy, in the city of Chivasso with his family when he was 1 year old. He has 3 siblings and studied in Italy up until he was fourteen, when he was sent back to a school in Dakar, by his parents.
He came back to Italy later on and got hired as a CNC machine operator in a factory. But COVID happened and he was fired, like many others during that time.
So he then started posting TikTok videos in 2020, and his “life hack” duets/stitch mocking videos made him famous. Since then he gathered a total of 2.5 billion likes. Who knows how many views.
He rose in popularity in 2021, surpassing one TikTok celebrity after another and reaching the highest place in October 2022, becoming number one, passing Charli D’Amelio, Dixie D’Amelio‘s sister.
Journalists for “New York Times” explain Khaby’s success in having authentic content giving him only organic views, which is a huge thing to have these days on social media. No wonder he’s so famous.
His videos are emphasizing universal feelings we all have about the “life hacks” he’s mocking. Stating the obvious, in such a charming and comedic manner, making people that agree with him, love him even more.
The fact that he’s not talking, makes him liked worldwide because his facial expressions are talking in his place, and everyone can understand them.
At the end of 2021 in the Top 25 most liked TikTok videos, he has 8 of them in. On the 9th place, it’s his video of “Peeling a banana – hack”.
He was given Italian citizenship in August 2022, and his fame probably helped, but he admitted not needing a piece of paper to tell him that he already felt Italian, living there since he was one year old. But that certainly helped him travel more easily.
He is Muslim, practicing Islam, and talks about it freely. His family was Muslim too, so there are no surprises he took on their beliefs as well.
Another TikTok celebrity you might want to check out is Rossi D Woods, a British comedian, also very funny.
