Popular YouTuber Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji gave a subtle jab toward his rival Logan Paul in a shady New Year’s Tweet on December 31.
KSI quoted Logan Paul’s end of year video from 2017 - which was uploaded just before Paul’s widely-criticised debacle in Japan’s Aokigahara ‘Suicide Forest.’

While KSI didn’t mention this incident directly, he made sure to address both his friends and his “enemies” for their part in his life duing 2018, finishing up his post with a quote from the tail end of Paul’s 2017 video.
2018 has hands down been the greatest year of my life. Thanking my friends and enemies and you guys for your contribution towards it. 2019, I’m ready. And it’s so crazy because the scariest part is, the part that most people don’t understand...I’m just getting warmed up.

“2018 has hands down been the greatest year of my life,” KSI wrote. “Thanking my friends and enemies and you guys for your contribution towards it. 2019, I’m ready. And it’s so crazy because the scariest part is the part that most people don’t understand… I’m just getting warmed up.”

While Paul has yet to respond to KSI’s thinly-veiled shade, the Maverick did upload another end of year video describing his experiences from 2018, placing particular emphasis on the consequences of his actions in Japan.
Paul described the experience, wherein he filmed the body of a suicide victim for a vlog, as “the perfect storm of circumstance, ignorance, ego, and downright stupidity,” likewise criticising his anti-suicide PSA shortly after the incident.
KSI doesn’t appear to be pulling any punches, despite Paul’s reflective message. In fact, the two YouTubers are set to throw down in a boxing rematch on February 27, 2019 - if information from UK gambling sites proves correct.
