Popular YouTubers Deji and Olajide William ‘KSI’ Olatunji are in the midst of a fierce family feud, after Deji leaked KSI’s personal bank records for a diss track. Now, Deji stands accused of milking their fight for views – but the evidence shows a startling trend to the contrary.

KSI called out Deji in a Tweet on December 27, claiming that he was “manipulating the audience” to prevent himself from losing subscribers.

While Deji has refuted these claims before, he appeared to respond to KSI’s allegations with a vague Tweet the very next day – but an investigation into both YouTubers’ subscriber counts reveals a trend that contradicts Deji’s alleged efforts.

Despite Deji’s subscriber increase just around the time of the spat’s inception, he is now losing subscribers at a rapid pace, dropping a total of 24,871 subs as of December 29, according to statistics website Social Blade.

Deji isn’t the only brother suffering from the feud, either; KSI likewise saw a drop in subs, losing around 1,500 subscribers on December 20 and 23. However, unlike his little bro, KSI has bounced back considerably, now gaining a daily average of 2,182 subs.

KSI isn’t the only one to have accused Deji of using the spat for views; Drama Alert’s Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem speculated that the youngest Olatunji brother was riding the argument to keep his “dying channel” afloat in an episode on December 7.

Deji has since denied any claims of drawing out their feud in the hopes of gaining subs, going so far as to call his brother “manipulative” in a response video on December 8.

Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek was left in awe after Sykkuno managed to shoot him dead on the OTV Rust server, and it was safe to say he was impressed by the streamer’s aim, saying “you killed me, you’re amazing!”

The Offline TV Rust sever has been a huge talking point since the start of this year, as with the enormous host of streamers participating there are endless amounts of content for fans to consume on the daily.

The server even ended up needing to be split into two after people’s varying playstyles caused some tension and calls for a need to separate PVP-focused players and roleplay-focused players.

While it was originally released in 2013, Rust has experienced a surge in popularity thanks to the OTV server.

However, that’s not to say that there haven’t been plenty of iconic moments between streamers, as even though the game can get pretty violent, the vast range of streamer interactions has led to some great scenes for fans.

That was the case for Sykkuno fans when he managed to kill shroud, leaving everyone impressed with his skills.

While they were competing for the Oil Rig, Sykkuno managed to get shroud with his gun as he jumped, and it didn’t seem like shroud expected it at all, dying with a bewildered “no, Sykkuno!”

Sykkuno’s hand immediately flew to his mouth, laughing and apologizing for the abrupt kill.

Michael sounded equally as impressed as he did betrayed, after a few seconds of silence saying “Sykkuno you killed me, you’re amazing!” But the compliments didn’t end there, with Micheal adding, “you destroyed me!” and even “you’re the better gamer, man” to which Sykkuno replied, “no, no, most definitely not.”

Sykkuno has talked previously about how he’s a “humongous fan of shroud” in the past, so this interaction definitely proved to be a positive one for the rising streamer.

One fan on Twitter said, “Sykkuno downed shroud and even shroud is proud of him,” another saying “that Sykkuno/shroud friendly PVP was beautiful to watch… what in the wholesome rivalry.”

The PVP moment was definitely an entertaining one all round, and while the results were unexpected, no one was more impressed than shroud himself.
