Khaby Lame Early Life
On March 9, 2000, Khabane “Khaby” Lame was born in the country of Senegal. When he was still a little child, his family made the journey to Italy. They ultimately decided to choose the city of Chivasso, where they established a home for their family in a public housing complex.

Khaby started out as a humble factory worker in Chivasso before going on to become one of the most prominent social media stars in the world. As a result of COVID-19 closing down a significant portion of the country’s manufacturing in March 2020, he was fired from his position.
When he had some spare time, he started making consistent posts on TikTok. He posted films that poked fun of life hack videos that were unnecessarily technical and featured his now-iconic irritated sardonic sneer in the videos. He came up with this formula really quickly and it was incredibly straightforward.
Because of the homemade reaction videos, he posted on his personal account, he quickly rose to the top of the TikTok popularity rankings. As was said previously, at the time this article was written, he is the person with the most followers on the platform, narrowly edging out Charli D’Amelio.
Khaby has amassed a fortune thanks to endorsement deals, guest appearances, and merchandising.
Candles, a popcorn maker, clothes, and a watermelon cutter are just some of the items now for sale in his Instagram shop.
Khaby Lame Personal Life
According to a biography that was published in The New York Times, Khaby is not actually an Italian citizen yet despite the fact that he has resided in the nation since he was one year old.
This is because of a peculiarity in the Italian legal system. It would appear that not having Italian citizenship has made it more challenging for the individual to travel on occasion. This is due to the fact that citizens of Senegal often have a harder problem acquiring visas for travel to certain nations.
The engagement between Khaby and Zaira Nucci took place in October of 2020.
