UK YouTuber BambinoBecky has explained how KSI completely changed her life and stopped her from quitting YouTube.

Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji is undeniably the largest YouTuber to hail from the UK, and has become a professional boxer and top recording artist in his career.

On the other hand, Becky is relatively small in comparison, with little under 300,000 subscribers but growing quickly — which is why she credits him with changing her career path thanks to one simple tweet.

Becky and KSI have become friends throughout her time on YouTube.

In her appearance on JaackMaate’s ‘The Happy Hour’ podcast, while speaking about her life and career so far as well as the YouTube space, the pair got on to the subject of KSI and his group – the Sidemen — who remain some of the most prominent names on YouTube.

Jack brought up the subject of KSI with Becky, asking “What is the KSI stuff that you talk about?”

She said: “I remember I was working, and I said I can’t do YouTube and waitressing at the same time. So I was like, I’ll just sack off YouTube then and try make some money because I’m skint.”

“Then I went on the True Geordie podcast…” she continued. “Then a couple of months passed… and I woke up and KSI tweeted me and (fellow YouTuber) Eleanor Neale. All he did was say ‘just found my two favourite female YouTubers’ and from then on I hit 100,000.”

Becky revealed that prior to that, she was only on around 13-14,000 subscribers — and had made it to 100k within the week, which is a level of growth most content creators just starting out could only dream of.

Since then, she has featured in several videos with KSI, including the ever-popular Sidemen Tinder videos that have no doubt helped her move up the social media chain.

Needless to say, Becky probably doesn’t have to worry about waitressing too much anymore — and such is the power of KSI.

Shroud stunned after logging into his old childhood RuneScape account

Twitch icon Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek was shocked after logging into his childhood RuneScape account and discovering that the game was not at all as he remembered it.

The former CSGO pro was taken back upon finding a way to log into his account that he created at the young age of nine or 10, and just how little he had actually accomplished in-game.

After the Canadian pulled up his inventory for the old account, his eyes wandered from side-to-side and top to bottom before he let out a disgusted groan.

“That’s it?!” he cried, clearly unhappy with his younger self. “That’s all I’m worth? That’s all I managed to achieve at the age of 10?”

Looking at shroud’s inventory, there’s nothing noteworthy that stands out with most of the available slots not even taken up by items.

“That’s it?” he groaned again before eventually turning to the denial phase of his cycle.

Not before long, shroud wondered why he had so little in his inventory. “I don’t believe this is all I have,” he continued. “There is no way this is all I managed to accumulate when I played that long ago.”

Eventually, the stunned Grzesiek pulled up his quests to see if he had completed anything cool and much to his chagrin, he didn’t even finish Monkey Madness.

This all said, as it turned out, shroud didn’t really play that much on the account, having a mere 42 days listed in his profile info.

“I was quite literally 10 years old!” he cried after his viewers called him a ‘casual.’ “16 plus years ago is when this thing was made!” he added, noting that the account was older than some of his fans.

“I was nine or 1o years old,” he continued. “Give me a break, okay?!”

With all of his disappointment, it just goes to show that sometimes we remember games, such as RuneScape, more fondly than they actually deserve to be or think we accomplished way more than we did.

In any case, shroud still has way more games to play as his casual content pursuit continues.
