You surely couldn’t make this up. The opening line to YouTube star KSI’s UK tour announcement is one you need to read whilst seated. It reads (and make sure you are seated), “Admitting you are a bell-end is the first step to salvation”.
The 22-year-old English video game commentator, comedian and rapper is touring the UK and Manchester’s date is this coming Saturday 26 September. KSI is one of the most famous YouTube stars in the UK. With over a billion views and millions of subscribers to his name, he is “the undisputed king of social media” it reads on his Facebook event page.
While his officially title is “video game commentator”, KSI regularly uploads comedy shorts involving other YouTube stars or where his family members are the victims of his pranks. This has brought the Watford-born entertainer – real name Olajide “JJ” Olatunji – some good earnings; as he bought his Nigerian parents’ house, paid off their debts and bagged himself a Lamborghini.
Despite this success he is a self-confessed bell-end. Excessively posting selfies, over-sharing about his dead nan, spending all day scouring Tinder and suffering from red-hot Fifa rage, are just some of his undesirable online habits.
However, with acceptance comes salvation and now KSI is blowing the doors off the internet to find the cure. No one is spared, as KSI takes down fellow YouTubers, trolls, paedos, Tinder catfishers and Nigerian scammers in an all-out assault on the online universe.
Along the way he also reveals how to become a YouTube kingpin as well as his hot Fifa tips, before he unveils his online revolution to help save the next generation from his fate.
So, if you want to avoid becoming a total bell-end, then “calm your t*ts” as he says and “simply take the medicine KSI is dishing up”.
Catch KSI in Manchester at the O2 Apollo on 26 September at 18:00hrs – 23:00hrs. It’s definitely one not to miss.
