UK YouTuber AnEsonGib stormed the stage at the KSI vs. Logan Paul press conference in London to call out Jake Paul on Monday, October 7.

FIFA, having started his channel nearly seven years ago with FIFA 13.

Since then, he has dabbled in real life videos as well as FIFA but has also been involved in both of the YouTube boxing events that have run so far, calling out Joe Weller and featuring on the undercard in last year’s event headlined by Olajide ‘KSI‘ Olatunji and Logan Paul.


Then, on September 19, Jake Paul put out a poll on Twitter to ask fans who he should fight before his brother, Logan Paul, takes on KSI in November. 

He directly addressed FaZe Clan’s Isiah ‘Sensei’ Ocasio-Pantoja, Yousef ‘Fousey’ Erakat, rapper Soulja Boy, MMA fighter Dillon Danis, YouTuber Jeff Wittek and, of course, Gib.

Evidently, Gib is the chosen one and has now been gearing up for a fight with the recently-wedded Jake Paul, taking to the stage during the London press conference to address Jake Paul face-to-face.

With fans chanting “we want Gib”, the YouTuber was brought up on stage by a beaming Eddie Hearn, immediately dashing towards Jake Paul’s side of the stage telling him “you’re scared!”

He was dragged off stage by security, with Jake then asking why he was running away and to come back up on stage, but it seemed clear already that the fight is being set up.

Following the presser, Gib was interviewed by Sky Sports Boxing, giving an amped-up interview explaining why he wants to fight the younger Paul brother.

“There’s a handful of people who can fight in YouTube boxing,” he said. “There’s only a small pool, and I’m at the top. He wants to get them easy fights, but he’s facing big Gibber at the end of the day.”

He finished by directly addressing Jake, saying “you can’t run no more. I’m everywhere, baby. That’s all I’ve got to say.”

Gib also offered his prediction on the result of the main event between KSI and Logan Paul, saying that he believes KSI is “going to smash it” after seeing the Sidemen member in training.


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.

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

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.
