Olajide Olayinka Williams “JJ” Olatunji, better known by his stage as KSI, is a British YouTuber, rapper, singer, and boxer born on June 19, 1993. In 2019, The Sunday Times ranked him second among the top 100 UK influencers. He’s also a member of the Sidemen, a YouTube group from the United Kingdom.
KSI’s debut studio album, Dissimulation, debuted at number two on the UK Albums Chart in 2020. His second studio album, All Over The Place, debuted at number one. On the UK Singles Chart, he had fourteen top 40 songs, with seven of them reaching the top ten and five reaching the top five. KSI was the subject of the documentary film KSI: Can’t Lose (2018), which documented the build-up to his first amateur boxing battle against British YouTuber Joe Weller. He also appeared in the British comedy film Laid in America (2016). He fought in two additional boxing contests, the second of which was a professional bout versus Logan Paul, an American YouTuber.
Who is KSI’s Girlfriend?
KSI, Anne-Marie, and Digital Farm Animals released the single “Don’t Play” on January 15, 2021.
Anne Marie and KSI train together in boxing in the video. Some have speculated that Anne-Marie and KSI had a romantic relationship due to the song’s passionate lyrics, “Don’t play tricks with my heart.”
Some of KSI’s followers have speculated that Anne-Marie is his girlfriend since the two worked on “Don’t Play.”
As a result, on February 5, 2021, KSI uploaded a video to his YouTube account titled “Is Anne Marie My Secret Girlfriend?”
In November 2019, KSI confirmed his second boxing battle with Logan Paul on Instagram. In this essay, KSI made a rare reference to his girlfriend. “I’ve missed my family, friends, and gorgeous girlfriend during this time, but they all understood that I needed to train in Vegas,” he added.
On February 5, 2021, KSI disclosed his girlfriend in the aforementioned YouTube video addressing the Anne-Marie rumors. KSI commented, “My girlfriend doesn’t mind if I record a song with Anne-Marie.” Stop attempting to force things to happen.”
KSI, whose real name is Olajide Olayinka Williams Olatunji and whose stage name is JJ, was formerly linked to Seana Cuthbert, another YouTuber, until 2014.
Her YouTube activity has dwindled in recent years, but her most recent video, from 2018, goes into great detail on her relationship with KSI.
Why is KSI famous?
In 2009, KSI began his YouTube career as a gaming YouTuber, posting recordings of HIM playing the soccer video game FIFA. He continued to make gaming videos, but he began to experiment with vlog-style uploads. His channel developed swiftly, and by the end of 2013-14, he had three million members. He presently has 20.5 million subscribers on YouTube, making him the 115th most popular channel.
His reputation expanded when he and other British entertainers created the Ultimate Sidemen entertainment group (it would later just be called Sidemen). He continued to make videos in the same way he had before, but now he did so as part of a group to help each producer grow their internet presence. KSI declared his departure from the group in 2017 but then revealed that it was all a publicity stunt and that he never actually left.
As KSI’s popularity grew, he ventured into the music industry, where he has had a lot of success in the United Kingdom. His debut single, “Lamborghini,” charted at No. 30 in the United Kingdom. “Keep Up,” his debut EP, debuted at No. 1 on the UK R&B Albums Chart.
He’s kept releasing music and even went on tour to promote his tracks. Earlier this year, he released “New Age,” a joint album with YouTuber Randolph.
KSI’s net worth was projected to be $20 million (£16 million) in 2021. KSI is said to earn £2.9 million ($4.5 million) per year as a YouTuber, yet his earnings fluctuate depending on his activity because he is not paid a salary by the company and instead earns money through advertising income and sponsorships. According to the Sunday Times, his videos can earn up to £250,000.
KSI is either somewhat more or less than Logan Paul and Jake Paul, who are both valued at £14.3 million ($19 million), depending on which valuation you trust.
Along with his YouTube channel, KSI has dabbled in music video production and has competed in boxing contests against other YouTube stars, the prize money from which is projected to raise his entire net worth.
