Popular YouTuber Olajide KSI Olatunji has passed a major milestone, as his main channel reached over 20 million subscribers on the video sharing platform.

KSI is one of the YouTube pioneers of his generation, having started creating YouTube videos in 2008. 11 years on, he’s estimated to be earning up to $2.3 million a year, according to data metric site Social Blade.


The 25-year-old announced the news on Twitter – and he is clearly very pleased by the accomplishment.


ksi, InstagramKSI also has 4.67 million followers on Twitter.

The tremendous success of the YouTuber culminates a variety of different content that he has produced over the years.

Popular videos ranging from FIFA compilations from his early days on his KSIOlajidebtHD channel – which still has over 6 million subs – to more recent feuds with other high-profile content creators like Quadeca, Joe Weller and Logan Paul have all played their part in his ever increasing popularity.


KSI has recently shed some light on potentially jumping back into the boxing ring with Logan Paul, after their first match back in August of last year resulted in a draw – suggesting that a potential timeframe decision could be imminent.


With everything he has going on right now, whether it’s his career as a rapper, a content creator or his boxing events, KSI doesn’t seem to be slowing down any time soon.
