Real name Khabane Lame, the 22-year-old star influencer, who resides in Italy, rose to fame thanks to his humorous silent videos posted on TikTok like this one, dated June 22.
His rise looks like a fairy tale. A worker in a factory in Turin, he was fired in March 2020. For fun, he started shooting his comic videos during the Covid-19 pandemic, from Chivasso, a city in the Turin metropolis where he has lived since his arrival. in Italy at the age of one year.
Based mainly on body language and facial expression, his silent short films, with subtle irony or grotesque humour, take on a universal dimension that has enabled him to very easily and very quickly reach users of the social network in the whole world.
If some have nicknamed him the “contemporary Buster Keaton”, his models would be, according to him, rather to be found on the side of Mister Bean, Eddy Murphy or Will Smith.
His status as a TikTok star allowed him to be named a juror at the last Cannes Film Festival in the section dedicated to tiktokers. This experience would have given him the desire to get into the cinema.
