Khaby Lame has quickly become one of the most sought-out acts on social media.

Now, a recent report from Forbes is detailing the big bucks that come with being the most-followed TikToker in the world.

He’s The World’s Most-Followed TikToker

Lame is proof in the pudding that sometimes less really is more, because it is this strategy that led him to garnering more than 146 million followers on TikTok and becoming the most-followed person in the world.

But, Is He The Highest-Paid TikToker?

Despite being the world’s most-followed TikToker, it was revealed that Lame is still not the top-paid influencer on the application.

In fact, his earnings fell well below those of his white counterparts, like the aforementioned Charli D’Amelio, who topped the 2022 Forbes Top Creator list at No. 2 with total earnings of $17.5 million.

Lame’s Rise To Fame

Like many people, Lame found himself without a job at the top of 2020 after losing his position as a factory worker in Italy due to the effects of the pandemic.

From there, much like most of the world, he found solace in social media during a time when the world was shut down. What started out as skits on the internet has led the young content creator to not only have a huge presence on the Internet, but in July 2022, he inked a deal with Binance, a cryptocurrency exchange company.


World Domination

Thus far, Lame has been tapped to help Pepsi introduce its first-ever nitrogen-infused cola and he’s inked a multi-year deal with Hugo Boss.

In addition to that, the young content creator even appeared in Facebook’s Metaverse ad.

Now, he comes in as No. 8 on Forbes 2022 Top Creators list and was named to its 2022 30 Under 30 Europe.
