In 2009 he completed his graduation from a high school in Watford and then he pursued towards his goals. There are rumors that he also dropped our from his college in the first year, but there is no confirmation about it from KSIOlajidebt himself.
He also has a brother named Deji Olatunji who was also supported a lot by his parents and Olajide Olatunji inspired his brother and then both the brothers started their career on YouTube.
KSIOlajidebt started his first YouTube channel back in 2008 and named it as JideJunior but that channel didn’t work well for him.
Later on, in 2009 Olajide Olatunji started his new channel and named it as KSI and as he used to be a great fan of FIFA so he started his YouTube channel where he started uploading his FIFA gameplay videos with his very funny commentaries.
In the time when FIFA starts getting more attraction, his channel started growing at a really high speed. From 2009 to 2011 his channel growth was at the peak and he created a great fan base for himself and named it as KSI Army.
From that time, KSIOlajidebt started visiting gaming events, competitions and all. But 2012 became one of the worst years for him as he was banned from the Eurogamer Expo as he was involved in a sexual harassment case. Later on, his team clarified that he was judged on the basis of a previous video that he had uploaded but had immediately taken down.
Also in 2012 Olajide Olatunji uploaded a video named ‘KSI vs FIFA’ in which he scored 190 goals against the computer and managed to record his name in Guinness World Records Gamers Edition.
Here is the video, where he made his name in Guinness World Records Gamers Edition.
And as he grown up to some big numbers, he started diversifying his content and his career.
In 2011, he branched out into the world of hip hop and rap and recorded his first song named “Heskey Times” in collaboration with a fellow YouTuber, Randolph.
He never thought that it will perform well as it was not a professionally shooted video. It was just a video with some FIFA oops moment by Heskey.
Here is the KSI’s first song video:
But surprisingly, in 2015 Island Records offered him a contract so he recorded his first ever single named “Lamborghini” and released it on 25 March 2015.

Later on in 2014, he also gave a try in the movie industry and the first role he had was in a series called “5 Aside” which was a good movie for sure and later on in 2016, he also appeared in a comedy movie named as “Laid in America”
In 2012, Olajide Olatunji published his first book called “KSI: I am a bellend”. And the very next year he also released his first album named “Keep Up” and that became a huge hit of USA and England too! As it entered US R&B Album Charts and US Hip-Hop Album Charts.
But a year back, in 2017, KSI stopped posting videos on his YouTube channel because he didn’t like the new algorithm that YouTube introduced in 2017. He says that he was very disappointed with the way YouTube is working today.
Still, he keeps uploading his music videos on YouTube which usually performs really well. Olajide Olatunji and his brother Deji Olatunji were ranked number #1 on UK’s Most Influential YouTube Creators.
