Popular YouTubers KSI and Deji Olatunji seemed to squash their beef in early 2019 – but now, the two brothers are feuding once more, and KSI isn’t playing nice this time.

KSI appeared in an interview on YouTube channel ‘Uncut with S1’ on May 5, where he opened up about their current beef and even made a physical threat toward his little brother.

“I’m just done with him now,” KSI said of their feud. “…I don’t care anymore. He’s made his bed, now he can rest in it. … I think he’s actually special. He must have something wrong with his head. …If I saw him, I’d probably slap him in the face.”

According to KSI, Deji had asked their mother if he could re-upload the diss track, which prompted her to ask KSI about the issue. Although KSI appeared to say no to his request, Deji uploaded the video anyway, prompting a vehement reaction from his older brother.

That wasn’t the only juicy info revealed during the podcast, either; KSI likewise admitted that he’d made enough money from his boxing match with Logan Paul to “last him his whole life.”

KSI vs Logan Paul, YouTubeLogan Paul and KSI threw down in the boxing ring in late August of 2018, with their match ending in a surprising draw.

“I’ve already made enough before that to have a good life, but now it’s making sure my great-grandchildren have a good life,” KSI said laughingly.

KSI’s beef with Deji flared up once more after Deji made his diss track against KSI public, despite promising to take the video off the platform for good as an end to their initial beef in 2018.

KSI popped off on his brother via Twitter shortly thereafter, claiming that he hoped Deji “never ever reaches 10 million subscribers” and claiming that he was “done” with him.

The story behind KSI and Deji’s beef

The two initially fought in late 2018 after Deji uploaded a diss track against KSI’s cameraman, Randolph, which included photos of KSI’s bank records.

Deji went on to claim that KSI had gotten a girl pregnant in a following video, appearing to insinuate that KSI had pressured her for an abortion.

Things continued to heat up until Deji kicked KSI out of the house on Christmas day, prompting KSI to issue a peace treaty with his brother, should he delete the diss track he’d made against him in the interim.

Now, it appears that Deji has broken that promise, with the brothers indefinitely estranged until further notice.


Is Dixie D’Amelio performing at the Grammys? Twitter reignites wild nominee rumor

Twitter has reignited the wild rumors that Dixie D’Amelio could be performing at the Grammys, and might even win an award. However, that isn’t the case, and here’s why.

A few of the biggest social media stars will, ultimately, crossover into the mainstream and appear on TV, get roles in movies, and some will even go into music.

With the rise of TikTok, there have been a few creators who’ve done all three – with the biggest of which being the D’Amelio’s, Charli, and Dixie. The former appeared in a Super Bowl commercial while Dixie has dropped a few songs, and even had features from One Direction’s Liam Payne.

Now, with awards season on the horizon, Twitter has reignited a rumor about her potentially being up for a Grammy and even performing at the annual show. However, that’s not likely to be the case.

Will Dixie D’Amelio sing at the Grammys?

Back in late December, Dixie responded to a wild set of rumors that she, alongside controversial rapper 6ix9ine, would be opening the Grammys with a performance of one of her songs.

“LMAOOO STOP,” she tweeted, on her now-deleted account. “I’m being set up at this point oh my god,” Dixie added in a follow-up post, before joking that a few fans had been a bit too gullible in eating up the rumor.

Ultimately, to perform at the show, you have to be nominated and Dixie hasn’t made the cut. So, despite Twitter bring the rumor back up, we’ll see probably see someone like Dua Lipa, or Coldplay, or even Beyonce strut their stuff instead.

Is Dixie D’Amelio nominated for a Grammy?

As above, no, Dixie has not been nominated for a Grammy for either of her songs that would be eligible – One Whole Day or Naughty List.

Even though it’s gotten some incredible buzz, her song Roommates is not eligible for this year’s Grammys show because it was released way after the cutoff date for voting. Maybe next year, though?

So, if you’re expecting to see Dixie at the Grammys, the only hope you’ve got is if she’s there as part of the crowd or on the red carpet. Someone might even use TikTok dances in their performance and slip one of her videos in, who knows.

However, she won’t be performing any of her own songs, so, sorry to disappoint anyone who may have been expecting it.
