Khaby Lame Is Heard Speaking On Camera And No One Can Believe It

The world's most famous and least talkative TikTok star has spoken on camera and people are absolutely losing their minds.

Lame - who this month overtook Charli D'Amelio to become the world's most followed TikToker with 144.9 million followers - is known for his side-splitting videos reacting to other TikTokers' ridiculous 'life hacks'.

What's more, he has tens of millions of eyeballs glued to each of his posts without even opening his mouth, instead treating viewers to his trademark exasperated facial expressions.

Well, if you've ever pondered what Lame's voice sounds like, ponder no more.

Watch below to hear Khaby Lame... speak:

Although this isn't the first time he's spoken, it's extremely rare to hear his voice on social media as all of his videos on his TikTok account - which boasts an incredible 144.9 million followers - are non-verbal... all while being very funny, might we add.

However, in a viral vid, the TikTok star is seen speaking and fans just can't get over it.

In a video captioned: "Hard work pays," Khaby is seen discussing his newfound fame, saying: "In one month I got nine views, and two subscribers."

"Bro turned on voice chat," one person wrote.

Another commented: "His voice, first time (shocked face emoji)," while a third added: "Wtf he is speaking."

"The first time I hear his voice," a fourth wrote.

Well, Khaby recently revealed why he never speaks in his videos and told CNN his silent reactions were meant to personify the term 'shaking my head', with his videos regularly showing his exasperation at weirdly complicated parts of life.

He said: "I came up with the idea because I was seeing these videos circulating, and I liked the idea of bringing some simplicity to it.

"The type of gesture came by chance, but the silence didn't. I thought of a way to reach as many people as possible. And the best way was not to speak."

"Maybe because my facial expressions are funny and they make people laugh, this simplicity makes people laugh and I love it."

Khaby was born in Senegal who moved to Italy at a young age.

His popularity really sky rocketed during the covid pandemic after he lost his job as as a factory worker.

While his first videos featured dancing, video game reactions and comedy skits, he finally hit a breakthrough with doing something pretty unique.

He began reacting to 'life hack' videos flooding the internet claiming and for Khaby, all it takes is a shrug, a gesture or a facial expression to mock these videos - and he does it all without a word.

People loved it.

The global appeal of not speaking in his TikToks means his content is easy to understand by just about everyone.

Khaby's dream, one day, would be to make a movie with Will Smith, who is supposedly one of his fans.

After Smith's infamous incident at this year's Academy Awards, the TikToker may have to wait a while for that one.
