YouTube brothers KSI and Deji Olatunji are in the midst of a bitter feud, after Deji leaked KSI’s personal information during a diss track video. Now, Deji is refusing to speak to his brother – but KSI is still trying to make amends.
Deji uploaded what he hoped to be a “final” video explaining his side of the story on December 8, alleging that KSI’s attempts to apologize to him were “not genuine,” and claimed that he’d even signed off on Deji’s diss track toward him.
Despite these scalding claims, KSI has come forward in yet another try for peace, after creating a (now-deleted) video addressing the issue on December 5.
KSI published a Tweet on December 9 wishing his brother a happy birthday, alongside a picture of Deji as a child.
“Happy birthday Deji,” KSI wrote. “Still here if you wanna talk privately. 😊”
While Deji has not responded to KSI directly, he has since thanked “everyone” for their birthday wishes in a short series of Tweets.
Happy birthday @Deji
Still here if you wanna talk privately :blush: pic.twitter.com/f07FPz3KMz

Despite KSI’s gesture of goodwill, it doesn’t look likely that Deji will accept his offer of peace anytime soon; Deji claimed that he will have a “hard time” letting KSI back into his life at all, as stated in his “The Truth About My Brother KSI” video.
Many fans are taking issue with Deji’s handling of the situation, with even the likes of Drama Alert’s KEEMSTAR accusing the YouTuber of milking the feud for views. Deji has fervently denied these claims, and continues to give his brother the cold shoulder despite KSI’s efforts.
