The Italy-based prankster has gained millions upon millions of fans and currently stands at 142.2 million followers, as opposed to D’Amelio’s 142.1 million, thanks to his tongue-in-cheek approach towards the social media platform’s trends.

The 22-year-old prankster’s universal appeal may be attributed to his lack of dialogue and dependance on body language, making him a personality which appeals to all users, regardless of language.

Lame has had quite a busy few weeks, gaining 3 million followers in the span of one month thanks to the hashtag #KhabyToNumberOne, along with his recent collaboration with luxury brand Boss, amongst others.

Żejtun’s Beland society break national record with first solar-powered & recycled float

Żejtun's Beland society break national record with first solar-powered & recycled float
Jun 23 2022 Share

During last week’s grand feast celebrations at St. Catherine’s feast in Zejtun, the volunteers at the Beland Musical Society registered a national record with a mechanised float, the first of its kind to operate on solar energy.

With the aim of raising awareness on the environmental impact of village feast, the members of Zejtun’s Beland created the mechanised system, which operates via hydraulics and is made almost completely out of recycled material from previous feasts.

A rechargeable solar battery, which was also repurposed, takes the place of an Internal Combustion Engine. The art piece attempts to symbolise the Beland Band’s journey beyond our shores in the past 30 years.

Congratulations Beland!
