Comedian Khabane Lame is vying to unseat Charli D’Amelio as TikTok’s ruler, and her ascension could be imminent.
In just one year, the 18-year-old D’Amelio rose to the top of the social media platform’s list of most popular content creators, with more than 100 million followers.
It was a long time before anyone else could match the TikTok dancer’s popularity, which has recently topped 141.7 million followers.
Charli uploaded a video with the words “A HUGE THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO HAS HELPED ME REACH 100 MILLION SUPPORTERS!!!” when she surpassed 100 million followers. Lastly, a heartfelt thanks to @tiktok. Each and every one of you has my undying gratitude and admiration.
This has been an incredible journey, and I’m so grateful for all of the people who have supported me along the way,” she said in a video. What the hell are you talking about, that is ridiculous.
As far as I’m concerned, I’m still in a state of naivete when it comes to the fact that this is actually happening.” Insanely crazy. OMG! Thank you so much!
For someone who hardly speaks in his video, this is quite an accomplishment.
Exaggerating their behaviours and giving them a wide-eyed expression are two of Khaby’s favourite ways to emphasise the absurdity of other content creators’ life hacks.
In the last few months, the 22-year-old has seen his social media following grow at a quick pace because to his deadpan sense of humour. D’Ameilo has about 1 million more followers than he does, but he’s on the verge of overtaking her.
With Lame’s 3 million new followers and D’Ameilo’s 1 million, analytics site Social Blade predicts Lame will be TikTok’s king in just one month.
Lame’s fans have recently pushed him to the top of the app, despite the fact that both content creators have different sectors of their audience.
As a result of the hashtag #KhabyToNumberOne, the number of followers of the TikTok creator has increased significantly in recent months.
Speaking to the New York Times about why he’s popular, Lame explained that his reactions and expressions are universally understood.
“It’s my face and my expressions that make them laugh,” he remarked.
The fact that Lame has 2.3 billion likes on his videos proves that he has found a formula that works.
Despite Charli D’Amelio’s popularity, Khaby Lame or Khabane Lame may soon overtake her in terms of TikTok followers. By 2020, she’d amassed a following of 100 million people after beginning her TikTok career as a dancer at the age of 18 and publishing her first videos in 2019.
The number of people who follow Charli on social media has grown to 141.7 million as a result of her dance performances. Khaby, a popular YouTube star known for his witty videos, is now taking on her.
Both accounts are currently the most popular TikTok handles, according to Clout News with Charli at the top of the list. However, viral star Khaby is challenging her for the title of most popular TikToker in the world, which he is expected to achieve in the near future.
D’Amelio has gained a million followers, while Khaby has earned three million, according to the analytics site Social Blade. With only a month to go, Khaby Lame might be declared TikTook’s king of the app.
