$5 Million Per Year

KSIOlajidebt, more commonly known as KSI, is an English YouTube personality, video game commentator, comedian, and rapper.

He has at least three YouTube channels — primarily “KSI,” “JJ Olatunji,” and “KSIClips.”

In total, his YouTube videos have accrued more than eight and a half billion views, a number that is pretty astonishing when you think about it.

KSI’s main channel has more than twenty-three million subscribers.

He was at one point a member of the Sidemen, a YouTube group that produces four different YouTube channels: “Sidemen,” “MoreSidemen,” “SidemenShorts,” and “SidemenReacts.”

As impressive as KSI’s YouTube and online content empire is, it is his net worth that is truly impressive. And to think it all started for him by watching a few FIFA videos.

What is KSI Net Worth?

If you’ve been searching for “KSI net worth,” you may be interested to know that he has an estimated net worth of more than $25 million (converted to US dollars from his native currency, the British pound).

This figure is a conservative estimate as KSI has suggested that his net worth may be even higher, maybe more than $30 million.

Though he has also been very private and protective about divulging private information relating to his wealth. 

In 2018, his brother, Deji, posted a video showing KSI’s personal bank account information and figures.

This made KSI angry at his brother and other family members for not putting a stop to it. 

Regardless, most of KSI’s net worth comes from revenue and sponsorships from his YouTube channels, as well as PPV boxing matches.

He also owns more than 10 properties in England with a combined value of more than ten million pounds. 

His current net worth of $25 million is likely to only go up as he keeps producing content on YouTube and other online platforms.
