These Are The 25 Most-Followed TikTok Accounts In 2021

TikTok is credited with turning ordinary people into internet celebrities overnight and launching highly lucrative careers as influencers. All they need is to resonate with people and millions will flock in and follow them.

First established in April 2014 as Music.ly, and renamed TikTok in September 2016, the platform blew up during lockdown, as people stayed connected through completing challenges and dances on the app.

While some TikTokers became famous elsewhere and then capitalised on their fame to build a TikTok following, others have the Chinese app to thank for making them household names.

One of the latter case studies is Khaby Lame, who went from being unemployed during the first wave of the coronavirus pandemic to being the second most-followed TikToker - all without saying a single word.

Who has the most followers on TikTok?

Currently, Charli D'Amelio is the most-followed person on TikTok. Her social media fame has allowed her to launch a reality TV series about her and her family off the back of her TikTok stardom. Her sister, D'Amelio, is the sixth most-followed person on TikTok.

Charli is closely followed by Khaby Lame, the only other person on TikTok with more than 100 million followers. Khaby Lame's followers are currently growing by around 7 million per month according to Socialtracker.io - considerably faster than Charlie's 2 million per day - leading many to believe he could soon overtake her as the no.1 most-followed TikToker.
