Khaby Lame dethrones Charli D’Amelio as the most-followed TikTok creator

Khaby Lame, a 22-year-old from Senegal, is now the most popular creator on TikTok. He gained recognition by duetting and sewing other TikToks, wordlessly repairing popular “life hacks” that didn’t initially function.

Khaby Lame overtook longtime top TikTok creator Charli D’Amelio to claim the top place yesterday with 142.7 million followers.

Since it’s only a matter of bragging rights, D’Amelio didn’t take it personally when she lost her No. 1 ranking when she appeared on a panel with Lightricks at VidCon today.

“For two years, I was No. 1. I’m proud of him, but it’s time for someone else to fill that position. On the VidCon stage, Charli D’Amelio declared, “He’s a friend, and there’s no bad blood. It’s wonderful to know that someone else will fill that position; someone who is kind, decent, and enthusiastic about their work.

At VidCon, she also revealed to the crowd that she has 2,400 TikTok drafts.

Media Wealth

A media empire that includes a reality program on Hulu, a clothing line with Hollister, many brand collaborations, and a Snap original show has been created by Charli D’Amelio, her sister Dixie D’Amelio, and their parents. The D’Amelio daughters and their parents have both turned into venture capitalists and have invested in Lightricks, the company that makes FaceTune. Black producers are conspicuously absent from Forbes’ list of the highest-paid influencers, despite the success of TikTokers like Lame. While her sister Dixie earns $10 million annually, Charli D’Amelio is ranked first with $17.5 million in earnings.
