When stars cast their light on you to make you a star, then nobody can stop. A similar thing happened with Khaby Lame, who has become famous recently and earned millions of followers on different social media platforms. Khaby demonstrated that famous people do not come from Hollywood only, but they can be from any country on the planet. With any race or educational foundation. This twenty-two years old young boy named Khaby Lame is making millions of people giggle daily, across the globe, through his videos, even without speaking a single word, and that is the specialty of his content. Khaby did not get it all on a plate; he also has an amazing success story behind it.

The well-known digital content creator: Khaby Lame has millions of followers today. He was once working as a waiter in a café because his parents were not rich; his father works in a private company, and his mother is a housekeeper. Khaby worked too hard to study in his childhood: being a dyslexic person, he got rejected by several educational institutions. He also had to work as a CNC machine operator in a factory to meet his expenses, and this is not an old incident.

Almost twenty years ago, Khaby with his family immigrated from Senegal to Chivasso in Italy to test their fate, as everyone has some dreams in their eyes. Life is not a bed of flowers, and things do not happen in the same way we think. The same was the case with Khaby; years passed without something big occurring. Without finances and proper education, Khaby did not know how to make something big. Thousands of people lost their jobs; during covid, covid days were nasty for everyone, and Khaby lost both of his jobs too. Being jobless, he had nothing to do, so he started making and uploading videos on TikTok. If he did not get fired, he would be doing the same jobs and never have gotten the fame, he has today.


At the start, he posted dance videos and videos about watching video-games on social media. He thought of doing something that is not being done by anybody yet, after some time. Khaby began uploading duet and stitch videos in which he represented simplifying complex tasks easily without saying anything. Then, magic happened that made his life change entirely forever. People found his videos interesting, attractive, unique, and funny. He got noticed in March 2021 and became popular on the video-sharing platform TikTok. Today, he is the most followed personality on TikTok. An interviewer questioned him about the uniqueness of his videos, and he said,

My videos are simple and easy.

The power of social media is not hidden from anyone. Social media can make you from zero to hero or hero to zero, just in one night. Khaby Lame has become a hero by gaining a lot of fame. Two years back, the person who was earning a little, is now earning millions. Once a poor and mean worker is now requested to attend film festivals. He has evolved as a new face of Hugo Boss (a famous clothing company). Recently, the TikTok Star Khaby Lame & Binance teamed up to drive crypto awareness.

Today he has a huge number of supporters on various virtual entertainment stages and procures millions. In the beginning, only two people watched his videos, his father and his neighbor. In the first month, he got only two subscribers and nine total views, yet he never acknowledged the disappointment; he continued his work with the entire focus. As it is said,

Do something for six months and you will succeed.

So gradually, he got increasingly more notoriety, and people began watching, loving, and sharing his videos since his approach to putting himself out there was interesting and unique. Once his manager said to him,

You are going to become an international star.

Although he had only one thousand followers at that time. In just two years, he got tremendous popularity; he went from a noncelebrity to a celebrity.

Khaby Lame is carrying on with the best everyday routine that anybody can fantasize about experiencing. The story is not about Khaby; the story is about you. Just put forth your objective and accomplish your fantasies. It is only occasionally simple to achieve our objectives. Individuals who seem as though him, individuals who appear as though you and I, can also make something in this world. Just think big and try hard.

Finally, I will share some words of Khaby Lame,

Continue in the same way without people because people say it is impossible but continue to get success.
