TikTok sensation Khaby Lame has bagged a brand ambassador deal with one of the largest financial institutions in the Middle East and Africa, Qatar National Bank (QNB) as their official ambassador for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Khaby Lame whose name is “Khabane” and also boasts over 150 million followers on TikTok will launch his first-ever television commercial with the QNB, holding on to the theme “Dreaming Big”.
The partnership between Khaby Lame and QNB Group will continue to build on the heritage of the Company’s role as the official Bank of Qatar for the World Cup period.
Khaby Lame reacting to the deal said “I am delighted to be QNB’s ambassador during the FIFA World Cup 2022. I believe that I am very similar to QNB, I create my dreams and achieve the impossible. I look forward to exploring the tournament through the lens of QNB and creating unforgettable memories.”
The deal with QNB would be Khaby Lame’s first official deal in the world of international football, and accordingly, it would be epochal in history, as Qatar would be the first country in the Arabian world to host the tournament, and the second in the Asian continent.
The competition is set to kick start in November and will run through December, the first ever played in that period. This tournament will also be the last to host a 32 men’s international team, as the next World Cup team would be increased in numbers.
