Deji is the younger brother of KSI and despite this, he has made a name for himself. He is also a content creator who primarily uploads comedy and gaming videos. Fans love his skits and reaction content. He earned the majority of his fortune through YouTube, but he also has other extra income from boxing. As of 2022, Deji has a net worth of £3.8 million ($5 million).
Deji is a shortened version of his real name, Oladeji Daniel Olatunji. He was born in Watford, England, on December 9, 1996. He was raised by a middle-class family with his older brother.
Olajide “Jide” Ademola Olatunji, Sr. is his father from Ibadan, Nigeria. He often appears in Oladeji’s videos. Olayinka Atinuke, from Islington, London, is his mother.
Ever since he was a child, he was a video game enthusiast. He loved playing games, like Call of Duty, Tekken 6, Halo 2, and a game he and his brother adored so much, FIFA. His brother’s online success inspired him to make a living out of his hobby.
In 2011, Deji launched his YouTube account and began uploading videos related to his favorite games, then moved on to short comedic clips, sketches, vlogs and other miscellaneous things.
His channel was originally titled ComedyShortsGamer. Viewers will see some of his family and friends in his recordings, particularly his father, who conducts the majority of the camera work.
Initially, he gained a lot of attention by appearing in his brother’s videos rather than his own. He used this following to boost his fame with his own efforts. Now, he has over 10.6 million subscribers.
His first boxing match was with Jake Paul. It happened when it was announced that KSI will fight Jake’s older brother, Logan. Sadly, it was a loss for Olatunji. He declared his return to boxing in March 2021. His second rival was TikToker Vinnie Hacker. Hacker defeated Deji. However, this was a controversial match as the two had a friendly relationship.
After six months of inactivity, he teases his return to boxing in a video released on December 2, 2021. He fought Alex Wassabi and suffered a third straight loss but looked much better.
His fights have brought in some big viewing figures as the YouTube boxing scene attracts a lot of attention. It wasn’t disclosed how much he made from his three bouts, but he probably earned a tidy sum.
Daily, his channel receives an estimate of 100,000 views. This will result in advertising revenue of approximately $800 per day, or about $300,000 per year.
Deji evicted KSI from his home on December 25, 2018. His reason for doing so is that KSI had come to fight him and had threatened to destroy his computer. This resulted in a series of back and forth between the two, explaining their side. It made an impact on their subscriber counts.
KSI and Deji have put years of bad blood behind them and are now friends again. Deji is currently single after his latest relationship with Dounja ‘Dunjahh’ Akoudad ended.
