Olajide Olayinka Williams “JJ” Olatunji, better known by his stage name KSI, is a rapper and YouTuber based in England.
His 40,8 million followers know him as a creative, an artist, and a friend who infuses everything he does with enthusiasm (and laughs), no matter what he’s doing.
He is a trailblazer in the world of YouTube, with approximately 20 billion total views, and his channel is the fourth most followed one for a British artist, after Ed Sheeran, One Direction, and Adele.
After achieving number one on The Official Big Top 40 with his summer smash, “Not Over Yet” which featured BRIT and Ivor Novello-nominated star Tom Grennan.
Three-time BRIT nominee KSI debuted the official remix of the song tonight at The O2 in London, drafting in pioneering rappers Headie One and Nines. KSI’s return to the ring was one of the most highly anticipated events of the year.
After two rounds of competition, KSI prevailed against the Mexican professional boxer Luis Alacarez Pineda, who is 23 years old, as well as Swarmz. During the show-stopping conclusion, King of Drill, Headie One gave a performance of the remix in front of a sold-out crowd of 20,000 people at The O2 and a worldwide streaming audience through DAZN PPV. This took place during KSI’s last ring walk of the evening.
Tonight marked nearly three years after KSI made his maiden record-breaking journey into boxing when he faced Logan Paul at a sold-out Staples Center in 2019. That fight became the largest white-collar battle in the history of the sport.
KSI’s song “Down Like That” which featured Rick Ross, Lil Baby, and S-X and was released during their fight in 2019, continues to be one of their most commercially successful offerings. Digital Farm Animals are the producers of the song “Not Over Yet.”
This collaboration is perfect for my fight return. Headie one and Nines came through and took this song to another level, capturing the spectacle of my boxing return at The O2.
