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.

PewDiePie hits out at company over KSI Meme Review copyright claim

Popular YouTuber Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg was stunned after a company copyright claimed his Meme Review with JJ ‘KSI’ Olatunji. The Swede lost all the revenue for the upload due to their awful performance of “My Heart Will Go On” from Titanic. 

On November 22, PewDiePie teamed up with fellow YouTube star KSI for an epic Meme Review. The duo tackled everything from British culture to Olatunji’s boxing match with Logan Paul.

Kjellberg later revealed on Instagram that the popular video had been copyright claimed by a company. The personality called the move “bulls**t” after the corporation took all the revenue over their Titanic joke.

PewDiePie & KSI’s Meme Review copyright claimed

PewDiePie’s Meme Review with KSI was a major hit on the platform, pulling in over 7.3 million views in just a few days. Fans of both YouTube creators were treated to a hilarious collaboration. However, the duo’s “attempt” to perform My Heart Will Go On on a flute and alpine horn caused the video to get claimed.

Kjellberg revealed the issue on his Instagram story on November 25. “So I got a claim on my KSI video. At the end, we played My Heart Will Go On,” he said, before playing a clip of their awful performance to demonstrate how absurd the claim was. “It’s too similar!” he joked.

It turns out the YouTuber had appealed the claim, but was denied. “So I appealed it, because its bulls**t why, and they rejected it! This is actually infringing on copyright according to this company!” he exclaimed, before breaking into laughter.

The 31-year-old explained that the company was now going to get 100% of the money made off the popular upload. “So all the revenue now goes to this company for the entire video. Like, what? Yeah, I just thought it was bulls**t, I don’t even know.”

The whole scenario is made all the more ridiculous when you consider that the Titanic joke was only a few seconds in a 26 minute upload. The fact that the company now gets to own the entire video is a good example how YouTube’s content ID system can sometimes be flawed.
