YouTuber Deji Olatunji has been accused of milking his ongoing feud with older brother ‘KSI’ for views and subscribers – and he’s finally spoken out about the allegations.
YouTube brothers Deji and ‘KSI’ Olatunji have been involved in a bitter feud, after Deji leaked KSI’s bank records in a diss track towards Sidemen member Randolph.
Since then, rumors have abounded that Deji is taking advantage of his fight with KSI to save his “dying channel” – but he claims such rumors are not the case, whatsoever.
Deji uploaded a video on December 8 further explaining his side of the story, following his guest appearance on YouTuber Logan Paul’s ‘imPaulsive’ podcast on December 6. In his newest video, Deji claimed that his brother was “manipulative,” and defended himself against any rumors of “backstabbing” KSI for views.
“A lot of people are attacking me, saying I’m an asshole for what I’ve done,” Deji began. “But you don’t understand all the shit that my brother has put me through along the years. …I didn’t backstab my brother. …he’s the one who’s backstabbed me.”
He went on to claim that KSI’s (now-deleted) apology video and Tweets were “not genuine,” and even recalled an emotional moment where his mother felt that KSI was “destroying” her youngest son.
Drama Alert host Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem broke down the brothers’ feud in an episode on December 7, during which he speculated that Deji was using his fight with KSI to keep his channel afloat.
While both brothers have claimed that their beef is 100% genuine, it looks like Deji isn’t backing down anytime soon – even going so far to say that it will be difficult for him to let KSI back into his life.
