KSI reveals beef with Deji has taken a surprising turn

Popular YouTuber Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji is currently feuding with little brother and fellow YouTuber Deji, after he leaked KSI’s personal bank records during a diss track video toward Sidemen member ‘Randolph.’

KSI took issue with this move during his own reaction video to the track, claiming that he was upset at both Deji and his own parents due to the publication of his financials. However, that wasn’t the only scandal to come out of the situation; Deji also claimed that KSI had gotten a girl pregnant, insinuating that he had even aborted the child.

Since then, KSI has blocked Deji on Twitter and Instagram – and now, things have taken an even more dramatic turn.

YouTuber Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem reached out to the brothers for comment on the situation in an episode of Drama Alert on December 1, wherein KSI revealed that he had completely stepped away from his family due to the debacle.

“I offered counseling, but they refuse,” KSI wrote to KEEMSTAR. “So, it’s one of those things where I just have to bounce for a bit, let the dust settle, and try again later.”

KSI went on to admit that everything Randolph had rapped about in his own diss track toward Deji had been based on “his experience” with his little brother, going on to claim that he had “no part” in their feud.

Deji appeared to take KSI’s actions very seriously, telling KEEMSTAR that KSI has “taken his friends over his own family.”

KEEMSTAR went on to confirm that the beef between the two is 100% authentic. With serious claims like that against each other, it’s no surprise that the brothers are taking a second to cool down.

JakeNBake hit with DMCA strike for Kanye song in two-year-old Twitch clip

Twitch star Jake “JakeNBake” Abramson has revealed he could be “in danger of losing everything” he’s built on his channel after an old IRL clip from more than two years ago was hit with a DMCA copyright strike due to a Kanye West song.

The ongoing Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) drama sweeping across Twitch has spared no one from its reach. The new Twitch crackdown, which sees streamers pinged for licensed music on broadcasts, is the hot topic in the community right now.

One by one, Twitch’s biggest stars have been sucked into the DMCA drama; Imane “Pokimane” Anys was forced to delete her streaming back-catalog last week, and Michael “shroud” Grzesiek has called for stars to “unite” against the crackdown.

DragonForce’s Herman Li was also banned after DMCA flagged his own music.

JakeNBake is the latest Twitch streamer to be caught up in the DMCA drama.

JakeNBake has become the latest Twitch streamer caught up in the DMCA drama.

Now, the latest star to find himself on the DMCA frontlines is JakeNBake. The 30-year-old IRL star is one of the Amazon-owned platform’s biggest stars. He boasts nearly 500k followers, but that may now be in danger.

JakeNBake revealed on Oct. 29 that he had been hit with a copyright infringement from Twitch. The kicker? The clip in question was from a May 9 stream all the way back in 2018, which contained just mere seconds of Kanye West’s ‘Lift Yourself.’

JakeNBake gets DMCA strike for old Twitch clip

“Just to be clear… this is a 30-second clip from two and a half years ago,” Abramson wrote on Twitter soon after receiving the DMCA email.

The Twitch email detailed a “claimed infringement” on JakeNBake’s old 2018 broadcast, where moments of the Kanye West song can be heard. The email warned Abramson could have his channel “terminated” if another offense is uncovered.

“It was from an outdoor IRL stream. I probably passed by a shop, or was in a place that was playing the song in the background… I’m now in danger of losing everything,” the Twitch star continued. “How is this even realistic?”

Abramson, who admitted on-stream soon after that Twitch is “80% of his life,” is now rushing to clear his entire video back-catalog in an effort to avoid that next promised DMCA strike.

JakeNBake also plans to counter-claim, but admitted he was “scared.”

“My fear is if I counter-claim this, and some computer in China turns around at me and just goes ‘f*ck you, f*ck you, f*ck you,’ and starts pinging me for everything I’ve ever done! Maybe I should just delete everything so that can’t get me.”

He added later, “It’s kind of nuts how this is just controlling my life now. This was two and a half years ago! I don’t really know what to do except delete everything, which just sucks. There’s nothing else I can really do.”

The DMCA drama, unfortunately, looks set to continue into the foreseeable future on Twitch, with the platform sticking to their guns on the copyright stance.

We can layout the big names hit by the wave so far ⁠— Courage, BrookeAB, Scump, Ninja, Sonii, Mongraal, Lirik… the list goes on ⁠— and there’ll likely be more caught in the crackdown soon. Twitch has yet to comment on the most recent strikes.
