Other details about KSI’s life before he became a successful internet star remain unknown in the media, including his parents’ identities and information about his formal education.
He started his channel KSI in 2009 where he first uploaded videos of himself playing video games like Modern Warfare 2, but from 2011 onwards he focused more on soccer games, precisely through FIFA. He has since become one of the most successful and popular FIFA players on YouTube and has set several records, including the most goals against a computer at 190, which included him in the 2013 Guinness World Records Gamer’s Edition.

They got pretty successful in the gaming community, winning multiple tournaments, but recently KSI released a statement that he is leaving the Sidemen group and stopped uploading videos for some time after being dissatisfied with YouTube’s latest policy . However, he returned to the network and has amassed a total of more than 17 million subscribers to date while his videos have been viewed more than 3.7 billion times, adding to his net worth significantly.
KSI is also an accomplished musician; In 2015 he released his debut single “Lamborghini”, a duet with P Money. The following year he released the EP “Keep Up”, which topped the UK R&B charts and landed at number 14 on the US rap charts. He went on to record music and released three other EPs including “Jump Around” (2016), “Space” (2017) and “Disstracktions”, which also topped the UK R&B charts in 2017. The sale of his publications has also added to his fortune.
To talk further about his accomplishments, KSI published the book “KSI: I Am A Bellend” in the UK, while in the US it had a different title, “KSI: I Am A Tool”, which contributed significantly to his wealth.
