YouTubers KSI and Logan Paul recently had their boxing rematch, this one professional, and KSI walked away with the title. Even though the British YouTuber is the one with the belt, who has the higher 2019 net worth?
Born Olajide Olayinka Williams “JJ” Olatunji in London, England, to Nigerian parents, he opened his current YouTube channel in 2009 at the age of 16.
Using the username KSIOlajideBT, from which his nickname “KSI” is derived, he started posting FIFA gaming video commentary and gained a following. Due to his successful monthly uploads, he chose to drop out of high school.
Within three years, KSI hit three million YouTube subscribers, making him the 25th most subscribed to channel at the time. However, he landed himself in the middle of a controversy after he allegedly verbally and sexually harassed staff at a 2012 Eurogamer event.
In the video, Paul and his friends are seen laughing, which caused several petitions asking that his channel be banned. After several apologies and a year-long hiatus, Paul returned to the site with weekly uploads.
Does KSI or Logan Paul have the higher 2019 net worth?
While both YouTubers are regarded as some of the wealthiest from the popular site, KSI has an estimated net worth of $5 million, while Logan Paul is sitting on a hefty net worth of $19 million.
