Introduction

Olajide William Olatunji, better known as KSI, is an English YouTube personality, rapper, comedian and actor.

He established himself on his YouTube channel, which he created several years ago to record his FIFA games, and since then has reached over 4 billion views.

As of 2020, KSI’s net worth is $20 million.

 

Early Life

Olajide William Olatunji was born on the 19th July, 1993, in Watford, England. He made the decision to drop out of high school in order to pursue his dreams and his definition of happiness.

KSI’s decision to drop out was ridiculed by his family, who were very traditional, and believed highly pursuing higher education.

He talks a little bit more about this in the motivational video we’ve included at the bottom of this article.

Instead, KSI created a YouTube account when he was a teenager, and started to do what he loved: playing video games, and creating entertaining videos for people.

 

Career

KSI's Career

KSI began recording videos on YouTube in 2008, and they majorly revolved around playing FIFA.

He quickly grew a large following, mainly among other FIFA fans and players, and used to growth start diversifying his channel and his career.

In 2011, he branched out into the world of hip hop and rap, and used his channel to help facilitate the early success of his music. He’s now released various songs on ITunes and YouTube, his very first of which, was ‘Heskey Time’; a football themed song, featuring fellow YouTuber Randolph.

Leveraging his following, KSI began producing more music, with tracks such as ‘Lamborghini’, ‘Down Like That’, and ‘Two Birds One Stone’.

With feuds becoming more and more popular among YouTubers, KSI lit the fire for the new trend of amateur boxing matches between social media superstars, fighting Joe Weller in 2018.

This continued, as KSI went on to fight Logan Paul later that year, with the match ending in a tie. However, in 2019, KSI and Logan fought once more, this time with the decision going in KSI’s favor. The two matches raked in millions of dollars.

Before the age of 24 years old, KSI has been able to afford a mansion, have a Jacuzzi air-lifted into his crib, and buy himself a Lamborghini.

KSI’s net worth is estimated to be $20 million in 2020, which is very similar to some of his fellow YouTube superstar’s, such as Jake Paul and Logan Paul.

 

How Does KSI Spend His Money? 

YouTube star KSI loves cars and he recently moved into his £4.9 Million home ($6 million USD). Cars are quite a thing for KSI, and when it comes to his Lamborghini Aventador, he does not pull any punches.

KSI has a Lamborghini Aventador, which was custom wrapped by Yiannimize. His ride comes with a top speed of 217.5 MPH, a 0-60 speed of 2.9 seconds, and is powered by an insane 3.5-liter V12 engine weighing 235 KG.

He has also owned a silver Porsche Cayenne which cost around £56,000. KSI works on YouTube so that means that he requires solid equipment to make his videos. Equipment can end up costing a fortune if you’re committed. Since it’s his career, we can guarantee he’s dropped tens of thousands on his gear.
