Khabane "Khaby" Lame (born March 9, 2000) is an Italian social media personality. He started actively posting content on the video-sharing platform TikTok in early 2020, and gained notability in 2021 for his life hack debunking videos, for which he quickly amassed a large following. He subsequently became the fourth most-followed creator on the platform, as well as the most-followed in Italy and the rest of Europe.
Lame was born on March 9, 2000, in Senegal and raised in a public housing complex in Chivasso, Italy, since the age of one, where he still lives. He practiced athletics such as football and basketball; in high school, he played in the junior-level basketball championships.
Lame began posting on TikTok in March 2020 during the COVID-19 lockdowns, making comic videos on any theme, from love to the relationship with parents; from everyday events to his connection with Africa; to the fight against racism and Black Lives Matter. In October 2020, he joined The Akkademia Agency. In December 2020, he modeled for the magazine DLuiRepubblica.
He gained popularity in April 2021, when his videos—in which he makes fun of some bizarre solutions to everyday problems—went viral. On April 26, 2021, he overtook Gianluca Vacchi and became the most-followed Italian TikToker. He now has over 68 million followers on TikTok and over 20 million followers on Instagram. He is currently the 4th most-followed TikToker worldwide and the most-followed Italian TikToker.
