Khabane is a 21-year-old guy from Senegal who only started using Tiktok for fun back in March 2020. He posted his first video just to pass the time during lockdown but never in his wildest dreams did he expect that less than two months after, he will gain more than one million followers!

His videos are all about making life so much easier. He finds previously uploaded videos of just random people which feature ridiculous tutorials and finds a simple solution using only his hands. He does not even say a word in his videos, his facial expressions were enough to prove his point.

Many people find Khabane’s videos really entertaining and funny, so it is being shared even outside of TikTok which earned Khabane’s title as the most famous guy in Senegal.

After a year of providing fun clips on Tiktok, Khabane is now part of the top 5 most-followed people on the said video-sharing platform, outside of China with over 67.6 million followers.
