Lame, whose full name is Khabane Serigne Lame, was born and raised in Italy. On Wednesday, he finally took the oath of citizenship in Chiavasso, a town outside of Turin.
Following the loss of his factory job in 2020 during the coronavirus lockdown, Khaby Lame started his TikTok career. He has become a digital celebrity in just the past two years, which is nothing short of incredible. His sardonic, tongue-in-cheek videos propelled him to fame, and today he has 148 million followers on TikTok alone.
"I swear to be faithful to the Republic and to observe the Constitution and the laws of the State," Lame declared this week to officials.
The 22-year-old moved to Italy from his native Senegal when he was an infant but only was granted citizenship now because of strict Italian citizenship laws.
