Popular YouTuber Olajide William ‘KSI’ Olatunji is known for his famed rivalry with social media star Logan Paul, which saw the two throw down in the boxing ring last year – and, more recently, on the set of a G FUEL commercial.

KSI was announced as part of the G FUEL family on June 13, marking another internet superstar as part of their ranks, standing alongside the likes of Twitch streamer Dr Disrespect and YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg.

However, his announcement was made with more than just a simple Tweet – KSI made another debut with the company in a hilarious commercial, which capitalized on his boxing prowess and challenging attitude.

The commercial shows KSI clad in boxing apparel, walking through a backstage scene complete with a circus act and a fruit seller.

The video ends with KSI stepping into the boxing ring to knock out a Logan Paul double with a single punch – likely a reference to their upcoming rematch in November 2019.

While KSI has yet to announce a special shaker or flavor with the company, his partnership with G FUEL follows even more beef with Paul, which saw KSI accuse Logan Paul of using the death of his dog for views.

Paul’s Pomeranian, Kong da Savage, passed away in early April, after the pup was taken from his yard by two coyotes, as shown by security footage of his residence.

Despite Paul seeming genuinely upset by the ordeal, KSI poked at a sore spot and accused him of making his video on the topic for profit, after Paul insulted his New Age music tour.

KSI’s G FUEL partnership likewise follows his feud with his little brother, Deji, who accused him of years of physical and mental abuse – and even threatened legal action against his older sibling, should he make a video over the subject.

TwitterBrothers KSI and Deji have likewise shared a troubled relationship, with Deji accusing KSI of mental and physical abuse over their lifetime.

Despite these threats, KSI uploaded an hour and twenty-minute-long video debunking Deji’s claims, which saw his little bro ultimately decide to hash out the matter in private.

KSI and Logan Paul are set to face off in the ring in November 2019, although no venue nor exact date for the bout have been revealed as of June 13.

On October 26, Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg responded to a glitch that omitted his YouTube channel from searches a few days before. The bug sparked widespread speculation that he had been “shadowbanned” by Google.

The YouTube community was rocked on October 19 when rumors began to spread that the platform’s largest content creator, PewDiePie, had been shadowbanned. However, it was quickly clarified to be a bug and his account was fixed.

The Swede addressed the drama in his first video back since the glitch. While the star believed that people were too quick to jump to conclusions about him being banned, he did have questions for Google as to why his channel was the only one affected.

Fans of the personality became concerned on October 19 when his channel disappeared from searches on YouTube. His latest video tanked in views as no one could see it without a direct link. Google then released a statement and said it was an error before fixing his channel hours later.

Responding to the incident, Pewds revealed that he didn’t think he was shadowbanned as his account had been having issues for days. “People started noticing my video wasn’t getting any views. And it just went everywhere. There was a bunch of news for it!” he said, before he joked, “Shadow ban! They creep from the shadows and they ban you!”

Despite not being overly concerned, Kjellberg did find it peculiar that it mainly impacted his channel and nobody else’s. “I didn’t think they shadowbanned me, I just assumed it was a glitch. But it begs the question, how does that happen? How did it happen? It didn’t happen to anyone else. I asked around.”

The popular entertainer later joked about YouTube trying to explain the glitch, after reacting to a fan submission on Reddit. “We shadowbanned our biggest creator! Yeah, yeah it was weird. It was weird, what in the world,” he said.

To add salt to the wound, Pewds celebrated his birthday on October 24, but instead of well wishes from fans, his subreddit was flooded with users concerned that he had been shadowbanned by Google. It should also be stated there is no confirmation that the company even does bans in this manner.

At the time of writing, the star’s account is back to normal, and his uploads are getting millions of views again. If nothing else, the incident shows just how many people love the 31-year-old entertainer. Viewers were quick to rally together for the content creator – further proof that Kjellberg is the king of the platform.
