What is Ksi’s Net Worth? KSI, whose real name is Olajide William JJ Olatunji, has an estimated net worth of $14 million (£10 million). This wealth has been accumulated by the young British YouTuber who has raked in profits from his music career as well as from the countless sponsorships and endorsement deals he’s signed over the years. KSI also earns money from his collaborations with other YouTubers on the site, among them other popular gamers such as JackSepticEye and Markiplier, who also have great wealth themselves.
Olajide JJ Olatunji, better known as his online alias KSI, was born in London on 24 June 1993 to Nigerian parents. He lived there for about eight years before moving to Nigeria for ten. His family then moved to Thorpe Bay, Essex and he has lived there ever since with his parents and four siblings. After gaining an interest in film-making and posting videos of him playing games on YouTube, JJ now has an estimated net worth of $1 million! Not bad! Here’s how he did it…

Prior to his YouTube stardom, Olajide JJ Olatunji was attending Brockport University with a major in marketing and finance. He dropped out of college because he didn’t feel like it was for him. Instead, he pursued another passion of his: rap music. Not much else is known about JJ outside of what he shares on his channel or social media—for privacy reasons, he keeps things pretty close to home. Which means we can only speculate about how much money Olajide/KSI makes through YouTube and other ventures. The good news? There are a lot of business model and revenue sources that could help provide insight into how big KSI’s bank account really might be in 2021. First up: YouTube Money…

KSI started out as a FIFA player and rose to fame by streaming on his personal channel. At first, he only made enough from YouTube to be able to pay for college.
