YouTuber Deji Olatunji, better known as just Deji, has claimed that YouTuber Jake Paul is avoiding a fight with Ali ‘AnEsonGib’ Gib, accusing the American of being “scared”.

Deji is the younger brother of KSI – the popular YouTuber turned pro boxer, who has fought Jake’s older brother, Logan, on two occasions and recently won the second bout.

While Deji lost his fight against Jake Paul when Logan and KSI met for the first time, there has been significant talk of a rematch — but nothing concrete has ever materialized. In his YouTube video uploaded on December 1, Deji called out Jake Paul for “ducking” AnEsonGib.

Deji explained that he woke up to a surprise parcel from the younger Paul brother, after which he proceeded to do a live opening. Inside was a message calling Deji a ‘p*ssy’, along with an invitation for a second fight. 

Deji initially laughed at the parcel, before firing back at Jake: “You wanna fight me, but you’re ducking Gib,” he said. “Let’s be honest, you’re scared to fight Gib. Don’t get me wrong, I would love to fight you… But fight Gib first.”

“Fight Gib first, because that’s the fight people wanna see,” he continued. “Then we can actually talk. Me and you – we’ll talk about our rematch.”

He goes on to call Jake a “f*cking weirdo” and claims that “everyone wants to see” Jake fight Gib. 

AnEsonGib is a popular YouTuber and previously fought on the undercards of KSI versus Joe Weller – where he beat MaxPlays – and the first KSI versus Logan Paul fight – where he beat TGF’s Jay Swingler. 

Gib has been very vocal in his requests for a fight with Jake Paul, but the American has so far been resistant to the calls. On December 1, Gib tweeted: “Jake Paul ain’t got balls, pass it on.” 

Many fans have criticized the American for not accepting Gib’s invitation for a fight, accusing him of being afraid.

Jake Paul has previously confirmed that fight negotiations are underway, with the opponent as yet undecided. He claims it will be a precursor to a Jake Paul vs KSI fight, in which he “avenge” his brother. 

Deji finished his video by encouraging his fans to tweet Jake calling him a p*ssy because of his refusal to fight AnEsonGib.

Is Dixie D’Amelio performing at the Grammys? Twitter reignites wild nominee rumor

Twitter has reignited the wild rumors that Dixie D’Amelio could be performing at the Grammys, and might even win an award. However, that isn’t the case, and here’s why.

A few of the biggest social media stars will, ultimately, crossover into the mainstream and appear on TV, get roles in movies, and some will even go into music.

With the rise of TikTok, there have been a few creators who’ve done all three – with the biggest of which being the D’Amelio’s, Charli, and Dixie. The former appeared in a Super Bowl commercial while Dixie has dropped a few songs, and even had features from One Direction’s Liam Payne.

Now, with awards season on the horizon, Twitter has reignited a rumor about her potentially being up for a Grammy and even performing at the annual show. However, that’s not likely to be the case.

Will Dixie D’Amelio sing at the Grammys?

Back in late December, Dixie responded to a wild set of rumors that she, alongside controversial rapper 6ix9ine, would be opening the Grammys with a performance of one of her songs.

“LMAOOO STOP,” she tweeted, on her now-deleted account. “I’m being set up at this point oh my god,” Dixie added in a follow-up post, before joking that a few fans had been a bit too gullible in eating up the rumor.

Ultimately, to perform at the show, you have to be nominated and Dixie hasn’t made the cut. So, despite Twitter bring the rumor back up, we’ll see probably see someone like Dua Lipa, or Coldplay, or even Beyonce strut their stuff instead.

Is Dixie D’Amelio nominated for a Grammy?

As above, no, Dixie has not been nominated for a Grammy for either of her songs that would be eligible – One Whole Day or Naughty List.

Even though it’s gotten some incredible buzz, her song Roommates is not eligible for this year’s Grammys show because it was released way after the cutoff date for voting. Maybe next year, though?

So, if you’re expecting to see Dixie at the Grammys, the only hope you’ve got is if she’s there as part of the crowd or on the red carpet. Someone might even use TikTok dances in their performance and slip one of her videos in, who knows.

However, she won’t be performing any of her own songs, so, sorry to disappoint anyone who may have been expecting it.
