Khaby Lame, an Italian-Senegalese TikTok star, recently posted an inspiring message explaining why people should never give up on their aspirations.
At the height of the coronavirus pandemic in 2020, the internet sensation, whose true name is Khabane Lame, was fired from his job as a factory worker in Italy.
He returned to his family’s house and, in spite of his Senegalese father’s advice to look for other employment, started spending hours every day submitting videos on TikTok under the name Khaby Lame.
The social media sensation finally surpassed everyone else as the most followed user on TikTok despite never speaking a single word in any of his videos.
He reportedly had a net worth of $13 million as of July 2022 from his lucrative work as a content creator for brands and businesses.
Khaby recently released a video of the period he was still employed by the factory that fired him on his Twitter profile.
Another scene in the video shows him strolling through the Italian streets while gazing at a large placard identifying him as a Hugo Boss model.
He wrote; ”Never stop growing and always believe in your dreams I love you all ❤️’‘
