Having lived all his life in Italy, the TikTok star only now becomes an Italian citizen
Khaby Lame, the most followed star of TikTok, has lived all his life in Italy. Now it's finally Italian. The 22-year-old TikTok star, whose tongue-in-cheek, tongue-in-cheek clips have earned him more followers than anyone else in the world, has finally become an Italian citizen.
"I swear to be loyal to the Republic and to respect the Constitution and the laws of the state," Lame told officials this week in Chivasso, the town near Turin where he and his family settled after fleeing Senegal when he was just one year old.
Lame – whose full name is Khabane Serigne Lame – started his TikTok career during Italy's 2020 coronavirus lockdown after losing his job at a factory. His rise to digital stardom in the two years since has been meteoric, quickly catapulting him to 148 million followers and the number one spot in the world of TikTok creators.
