13 Facts About The TikTok Star With The Most Followers

Soccer, or football as it is called outside of the U.S., is a passion of Khaby Lame’s, and his love of the sport has changed his life in several ways. This includes helping him connect with his manager, internet personality Alessandro Riggio.

He recalled how they met, telling Forbes in a 2022 interview, “I’ve always been a big football fan, and one day, I was watching some Juventus players play video games live on Twitch with Alessandro.” At the time, he was starting to make content and did not have anywhere near the fan following he does today, but his persistence with his messages in Riggio’s chat got him noticed. 

Fast forward to the present day, and his fame has allowed him to take his love of football to a new level, including meeting and collaborating on a video with legendary soccer star Zlatan Ibrahimović. “[Ibrahimović] is one of the greatest. It was really fun!” Lame told Forbes of the partnership. The influencer has also been able to play with sporting greats like Roberto Carlos and Ronaldo de Assis Moreira. In an Instagram post in June 2023, Lame shared his excitement, writing, “There is no phrase to express how I felt when I was sitting in the living room and comes running my friend and tells me: we received an email, but you will not believe it: you will go to play a soccer game, and you will be the only nonpro to play with the legends.”
