Nowadays, people have two lives, one in the physical world and one in the virtual world.
The virtual world is full of different social media platforms. However, the one most popular amongst our gen z youth is most definitely TikTok. With different dancing and challenging trends, TikTokers have taken the world by storm.
Of course, in a myriad of different TikTokers, there will always be several who shine through, the trendsetters, if you will. These trendsetting TikTokers have now established an incredibly large following, almost boosting them to gaining celebrity status, where several have used the platform to promote their music careers.
There is no doubt that by looking at numbers, you will always gain an insight into what works on TikTok and what doesn’t.
So, without further ado, here is a list of who has the most followers on TikTok.
Who Has the Most Followers on TikTok?
Below is our list of the TikTok users with the most followers this year:
1. Charli D’Amelio
With over 135 million followers, Charli D’Amelio is currently the most popular TikToker on the platform with the greatest number of followers.
Charli started off her career on TikTok back in the year 2019 and was thrust into the light of fame on the platform quite quickly. In fact, in just a year, the month of March 2020 to be specific, she had become the most followed person on TikTok already.
So, what type of content does the most followed person on TikTok make? Well, Charli D’Amelio is a dancer by profession, and her skills as a dancer are something that is known to incorporate quite often in her content of TikTok.
She is known for creating great dance moves to popular songs, which is what draws most of the viewers in. Her public profile isn’t the only one that she has on TikTok. Her private account also has a huge number of followers, which is more than 11 million now. However, TikTok isn’t the only platform on which she has a massive presence; she can also be found all over Instagram and YouTube. Her popularity isn’t just due to her content.
Charli is known for her incredibly likable personality and also has several friends on the platform, where she also does a myriad of collaborations. She also has a sister named Dixie, who is quite popular on the platform as well and appears in Charli’s TikToks quite often. In fact, Dixie was the first TikToker who received more than one billion likes on TikTok.
2. Khabane “Khaby” Lame
Khaby, a Senegalese-Italian TikToker, has over 122 million followers on TikTok. He is a comedic TikToker and started posting content on the platform during the pandemic.
His content is quite different from mainstream content as he does not make lip-syncing content, which is all the rage at the moment. Khaby’s content is quite unique, where he points out the obvious ridiculousness in DIY projects that take it way too far and thus gives low-maintenance alternatives that are much more rational. Khaby’s pose is his signature style of pointing out the idiosyncrasies of the DIY content he mocks.
His unique comedic content is what draws viewer after viewer in. In fact, he could quite possibly overthrow Charli’s position as the most followed person on TikTok.
3. Bella Poarch
Bella Porch is another one of the most recognized TikTokers out there. She has 88 million followers as of now, and this number is sure to grow much further in the near future. The incredible thing is that Bella hasn’t been on TikTok for more than a year but has already become one of the top 3 most-followed people on the platform.
Bella makes content that is much more in line with the mainstream content you would find all over TikTok. In fact, she is one of the few TikTokers who has established a music career due to her massive following on TikTok, and she even has a hit single this year. Of course, this information wouldn’t be as shocking. However, what we are about to tell you next is definitely more shock-worthy.
Before Tiktok, Bella was actually in the Navy. She is the perfect female TikToker to look up to. There is no doubt that TikTok is a great platform that can catapult you into a myriad of media-related careers, just like with Bella and Addison Rae.
4. Addison Rae
Right behind Bella is Addison Rae; with over 86 million followers, she is an incredibly prominent figure over the internet. Apart from making comedy content, Addison also makes dancing content. Her popularity was further boosted after she became friends with the infamous Kardashians. She also went on to star in an original Netflix movie.
Her work on TikTok and the media industry makes her one of the highest-earning personalities through social media. She is one of the few TikTokers who has a presence all over social media, across different platforms instead of just TikTok.
TikTok influences have reached the point where they have practically become household names. Of course, that isn’t a surprise since having around 100 million followers is no easy feat. It is, in fact, a big deal; while the content might seem goofy or non-sensical to some, there is no doubt that TikTok definitely has a significant influence.
