YouTuber Deji causes controversy at Esports Awards

YouTuber Oladeji Daniel Olatunji AKA ‘Deji’ pulled a fast one at the 2018 Esports Awards while announcing the winner of Esports Publisher of the Year.

Rather than announcing the correct winner for the award, Deji opted to fake out the audience by first saying the wrong name. 

“This award goes to… Epic Games!” Deji announced as the representative from Epic walked towards the stage.

After letting the moment linger for a few seconds, the YouTube star brought the whole room to a halt by saying, “No I’m joking, I’m joking, It’s a joke, it goes to Blizzard, well done Blizzard.”

The Blizzard representatives look a bit confused as they get up and head towards the stage, not knowing what to expect at this point in the night.

Pulling the jebait wasn’t the only thing Deji did on stage, as he also called out Twitch for allowing free streams of his brother KSI’s fight with Logan Paul to happen, “Yo, shoutout to Twitch for illegally streaming our fight, you owe us money! Woo!”

The Youtube star’s time on stage definitely kept things interesting, but award shows might take a hard look at having him on in the future after that fake out.

Other winners from the night include Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, who won Streamer of the year and Esports Personality of the year, as well as Overwatch, which took home the award for Esports Game of the Year.

Dixie D’Amelio’s fans think her latest song, ‘One Whole Day,’ is a diss track aimed at her ex-boyfriend, Griffin Johnson, but she claimed it isn’t and explained what it’s really about.

Dixie D’Amelio rocked the world with the release of her latest song, ‘One Whole Day.’ The lyrics tell how she had a falling out with a boyfriend but was only sad for one whole day and shed a single tear.

Her fans assume the song is about her break up with Griffin Johnson and think it’s her way of throwing him some shade. However, Dixie D’Amelio recently answered some questions about the song on YouTube, and she explained that it’s not a diss track.

Dixie D’Amelio collaborated with Wiz Khalifa to produce her latest song, ‘One Whole Day.’

“Being sad is not what the song is about,” she said, without mentioning Griffin Johnson’s name. “The song is basically about how I am only going to be sad for one day from a breakup.”

“When you are treated in a way where you’re not number one or a number one priority or shown true care and love and affection more than anyone else, there’s no point in being upset about it for more than one day,” she added.

It’s reasonable to assume this might have been an issue in Dixie D’Amelio’s relationship with Griffin Johnson. Either way, the point is, it’s more about the personal realization she had rather than the break-up itself.

Dixie D’Amelio and Griffin Johnson were together for a while, but things didn’t work out.

“The song does mean a lot to me because I’ve spent a lot of my life being upset about things for too long,” she said. “If a person… cannot treat me with respect… then I don’t want them in my life, and I will not be upset about it for more than one whole day.”

“That’s kind of my idea of the song. It’s not a diss in any way. It’s… showing self-love… to myself,” she added. “It’s important to love yourself. It’s important to know you’re worth, so that’s… what it’s all about.”

Segment begins at 1:30.

‘One Whole Day’ might refer to some of the experiences and feelings Dixie D’Amelio had during her break-up with Griffin Johnson, but it’s not intended to be a diss track in any way, shape, or form.

The song’s meaning runs much deeper than that. It’s about feeling a sense of self-love and self-worth during a break-up, no matter how sad it can be in the short-term.
