Khaby Lame, a TikTok star, was working at a factory in Chivasso, Italy, a small town in the Turn district, when he first started on the social media app in March 2020.

Then, unexpectedly, he was fired, forcing him to return to his family’s “modest home.”

But, as the Senegalese sensation explained to The New York Times, he chose to devote his full attention to TikTok instead of getting a so-called “real job,” and it was the best decision he’d ever made.

“It’s my face and my expressions that make people laugh,” he told the outlet, adding that his calm demeanour is a “universal language.”

He has over 100 million followers on the micro-video app, and according to one site, someone like him can charge anywhere from $1 million to $2 million per post because of his dedicated, engaged audience.
