Sensational social media star Khaby Lame, who is known as the most popular person on the Chinese-owned social media platform TikTok, has become an Italian citizen.

Lame was born in Senegal then moved to Italy as a young child and was raised in the town of Chivasso, outside of Turin.

After the ceremony held on Wednesday in Chivasso, in which he was officially granted Italian citizenship, Lame recalled his childhood in a neighbourhood of Viale Palmiro Togliatti. Lame had to wait until he was an adult to become a citizen.

In Italy, it is necessary to have an Italian parent to obtain Italian citizenship, otherwise, the steps are often crucial and lengthy.

Lame started with the silent videos he shot to TikTok stardom and currently enjoys 148.5 million followers becoming an international star. Last June, he dethroned the American TikTok star Charlie D'Amelio and her 142 million subscribers.

The 22-year-old Senegalese YouTuber and TikTok star was born in a devout Muslim family in West Africa. His silent comical clips amassed more than 2.3 billion likes on social media.

Despite his worldwide success and ensuing sponsorship and endorsement contracts, Lame is proud of his humble origins.
