Randolph vs Deji
In a Sidemen Sunday video SIDEMEN FAMILY FORTUNES, they asked Randolph which YouTube channel he thought was dead. He responded saying Deji. Then Deji responded by making a video roasting Randolph for being a slave of KSI and doing everything for him, as well as insulting Randoph’s wife.
After this, Randolph made a video saying that it was just a simple joke, and he released a diss track “Manchild” aimed at Deji. Deji then responded with his own diss track “RAN”. However in the video, while talking about how JJ paid for Randolph’s wedding, Deji leaked JJ’s bank details for which JJ criticized him, and which further led to the KSI vs Deji beef.
Randolph then released a second diss track, titled “Victory Speech”. Deji’s reaction to the track caused him to get in a further beef with JJ, so it’s likely that his involvement with Randolph has settled down. Randolph made a video later to explain that the beef got out of hand and that he wasn’t going to acknowledge Deji’s begs for attention any longer.
The beef between Deji and Randolph spilled over onto a brother beef between KSI and Deji when KSI reacted to both Randolph and Deji’s diss track and affirmed the truth of Randolph’s disses whilst calling out Deji as well as his parents for exposing his private bank account.
Deji then responded with a video saying that KSI had taken Randolph’s side and it was an unfair beef with 6 vs 1. Deji then went on saying that he never gotten a girl pregnant (something Randolph mentioned in his second diss track) but then commented that JJ had, giving even more bad vibes between them. The beef then escalated with Deji tweeting out that JJ had blocked him and JJ then tweeting “get rid of negative delusional people, even if they are family” although this was deleted shortly after.
Deji then made a full video calling out his brother for preferring his friends over family and calling his brother as having a god complex. JJ immediately tweeted that he loved his brother and made a video apologizing for certain things. Deji then uploaded a huge diss track titled “Unforgivable” with Jallow, Dax, and Crypt.
Some of the disses were calling out the fact that JJ had gotten a girl pregnant, though it was made before JJ’s video apologizing to certain things, and Deji uploaded the diss track to keep things fair for the people featured in the diss track. The apologetic tweets and video by JJ were deleted shortly after. Deji came on the Logan Paul podcast “Impaulsive” to explain the situation and called JJ manipulative and his friends (The Sidemen) fake and only having JJ’s back on the surface but not truly.
The beef goes on
On Christmas Day, KSI came to visit the family, which resulted in a fight between him and Deji. KSI claimed on twitter that Deji kicked him out and his parents just stood there and watched, with Deji threatening to call the cops if he didn’t leave. Deji tweeted that KSI wanted to smash his computer and to make him delete the diss track.
He later stated that KSI attacked their mom and insulted both of their parents. Deji later that day made another video titled “My bro” calling him a bully, manipulative, and attacking and making their parents cry. He later deleted the video, which is speculated he deleted it due to subscriber loss.
As a result, Deji lost thousands of subscribers from the drama with his brother, due to him uploading more videos talking about the situation. However on January 6, 2019, Deji uploaded an apology video to KSI for his actions, and he deleted the “Unforgivable” diss track, thus ending the beef.
However, on May 2, 2019, the beef between the two was reignited, when Deji made the diss track that was thought to be deleted, public again on YouTube. On the 25th of May, 2019 he uploaded a serious video, explaining why he made his diss track back to the public, and talking about the suffering with the psychical abuse and the suicidal thoughts, as the result of the latest drama situation.
More controversy between siblings
Later, on May 30, 2019, he made a follow-up video called “he’s gone too far”, where Deji calls out his brother for trying to find dirt on him for a response video and threatened his brother with a lawsuit if JJ lies about him. He also calls out JJ for forgetting about there Mum’s birthday.
Furthermore, on June 3, 2019, KSI finally responded to Deji with a video titled “Ending it all”. KSI debunked all of Deji’s claims towards him and showed Deji’s manipulation and hypocrisy, he did also apologize to Deji about violent videos and sleeping with the girl Deji had a crush on. The video caused Deji to lose subscribers and KSI started to regain his subscriber loss. The next day Deji uploaded a video titled “moving on”, where Deji stated that the beef was “over” and that he would keep things private with his bro.
However, on June 18, 2019, Deji uploaded a video titled “i can’t do this anymore”, where he came forward and said he’s suffering from mental health. He later has a mental breakdown and begs people to stop seeing him as a “bad guy”.
The next day Deji went live on Twitch and told his viewers that he finally agreed to attend therapy with his brother and said he would take some time off the internet to focus on getting better mentally. It appears that the beef is over after Deji voiced support for his brother for the boxing rematch against Logan Paul.
On December 17, 2019, Deji announced his dog, Tank, was going to be put down for biting an elderly neighbor that took place back on July 23, 2018. Deji was fined, while his mother was ordered to pay the victims compensation. After Tank was seized by the police, the court said she did not feel able to take the dog off a lead. She said while most dogs accept a muzzle, she found Tank “was very frightened with the attempts to muzzle him”.
As well as ordering the euthanisation of the dog, Deji’s mother had to pay £8,000 of compensation to the victim. He also gave her a 12-month community order and 80 hours of unpaid work. Deji was fined £2,500, while both were also ordered to pay kennelling costs and given a restraining order from contacting the victims for four years. The Olatunji family had 28 days from Friday to appeal against the decision to pu down their dog.
The young and talented English YouTuber and Comedy Short Gamer, Deji Olatunji has earned a decent sum of money by his profession. His estimated net worth is around $5 million.
