Wassup!? It's Deji!
— Deji's intro.

Deji Daniel Olatunji (born December 9, 1996 (1996-12-09) [age 23]), also known as ComedyShortsGamer, is an English YouTuber. He is the younger brother of KSI

Personal life

Deji was born and raised in Watford, London. He was often joked to have been born in Nigeria which he laughed at. He now resides in Peterborough, England, with his parents and his girlfriend, Dounja.

Deji created his first YouTube channel on 27 August 2011, named TheAngelzKid. He has recently changed the channel's name to 'Deji 2nd' and uploads gaming and some random content on there.

His main YouTube channel Deji (originally known as ComedyShortsGamer) was created on 1 December 2011, where he started out posting gaming videos to YouTube, including FIFA.

YouTube Carrier

Deji uploads a variety of games to his channel, but like his brother, his fame rose due to his FIFA videos. He also does lots of real-life videos with his parents and his girlfriend Dounja.

Deji now does random content, ranging from reactions, sketches, occasional challenges and pranks and music videos. He primarily makes videos with his girlfriend Dounja now, though his older videos used to consist of random 'girlfriends' he would have, such as Marina Joyce or Claira Hermet.

He used to often feature or be featured with JJ in videos, such as challenges or scary games. This had slowed down drastically once JJ moved in with the Sidemen in 2014.

He would also often make videos about his cars, such as the Audi TT, which he crashed, his Range Rover Autobiography, as well as his Lamborghini Huracan and his latest Lamborghini Aventador S, the former having been sold after being vandalised.

His second channel, Deji 2nd, mainly consists of gaming videos, as well as some random content with his girlfriend. He also streams on Twitch and YouNow.

He has also featured on Miniminter's channel, such as the 'Nugget Challenge' and 'REACTING TO OLD VIDEOS WITH DEJI', as well as on Callux's channel, for his famed Insults Match.



After KSI "left" the Sidemen in 2017, Deji uploaded a random "diss track". Miniminter had a little "beef" with Deji over Twitter, causing him to get more involved with the Sidemen. Deji's diss track targeted all 6 remaining members of the Sidemen but he mainly targeted Simon (which details more about his personal life, ex-lovers and his past).

Jake Paul

In 2018, after JJ called out the Paul brothers after his fight with Joe Weller, Deji wanted to fight Jake Paul, with JJ then deciding to fight Logan as a result. Jake agreed and they were set to fight on August 25 2018. There were two press conferences, where Jake and Deji would insult each other most of the time. A few days before the fight, Deji showed up at one of Jake and Logan Paul's meet and greets, Jake responded by slapping Deji in the face.

Jake won the boxing match, but Deji was well praised as he had done all the fans proud, and even gave him a bloody nose. When Deji was in LA to make an appearance on Logan Paul's podcast "Impaulsive", Jake said he would accept Deji's request for a sparring rematch at his place, but Deji didn't go because he was advised not to.


In a Sidemen Sunday video, 'SIDEMEN FAMILY FORTUNES', Randolph got asked which YouTube channel he thought was dead - he responded saying Deji. Deji responded by making a video roasting Randolph for being a slave of KSI and doing everything for him, as well as insulting Randolph'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 for, 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.

Deji vs KSI

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.

On Christmas 2018, KSI came to visit the family, but there were disagreements in their conversation, 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. Deji 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, the video was later deleted, 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 disstrack that was thought to be deleted, public again on YouTube.

On the 25th of May, 2019 he uploaded a serious video, explaining on why he made his disstrack back to public, and talking about the suffering with the psychical abuse and the suicidal thoughts, as the result of the latest drama situation.[3] He also calls JJ out for forgetting their Mum's birthday.

On May 30, 2019, He made a follow up video called "he's gone too far", where Deji calls out his brother for trying go find dirt on him for a response video, and threatened his brother with a lawsuit if JJ lies about him.

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, claiming he didn't know her. 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 problems and calls JJ out for lying about the woman he slept with. 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.

From this point, there were random, subtle digs at each other in both of their videos. When Deji released his video reacting to JJ react to 'Unforgivable', he was subject to a lot of hate and lost around 80,000 subscribers, dropping his sub count from 10,000,000 to 9.92 million.

On May 13, 2020, JJ stated in the Mom's Basement Podcast that there was just no clarity about the issues between him and Deji. JJ said he went to their parents' home but him and Deji did not say one word to each other the whole time.

Tank situation

On December 17, 2019, Deji announced his dog, Tank, was going to be put down for biting an elderly neighbor that took place back in 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 destruction 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 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 destroy the dog.


Deji has had an interesting history with cars. Since 2014, he has owned 6 cars:

  • 2014 Audi TT S-Line (2014 - 2016)
  • 2015 Porsche 911 Carrera S (2015 - present)
  • 2016 Range Rover Autobiography (2016 - present)
  • 2016 Lamborghini Huracan (2016 - 2017)
  • 2017 Lamborghini Aventador S (2017 - present)
  • 2018 Mini Clubman (2018 - present)

On September 3, 2016, Deji got into a car accident with his Audi TT, in which he nearly died, along with an old friend of his. He made a video after it had happened, as well as showing the aftermath of the car. He has since replaced it with a Range Rover Autobiography for daily driving.

The Porsche is said to mainly be owned and driven by his mum, as indicated by the number plate 'Y1NKE'. The Range Rover is their family car, shared between the members of the house.

Deji got his grey 2016 Lamborghini Huracan wrapped by Yiannimize in a satin gold colour, with white tron lines. But in 2017, his car was vandalised with scratches and paint, and so he got it unwrapped and sold it.

Soon after selling his Huracan, Deji purchased a yellow 2017 Lamborghini Aventador S. Speculations claim he has sold his Aventador S after searches of his registration number show no record.

In 2018, Deji bought his dad a 2010 Land Rover Defender, his dad's dream car. He had also bought himself a smaller Mini Clubman for himself to daily drive, as his parents use the Range Rover too.

In December of 2019, Deji's Range Rover broke down in the middle of the road, and his girlfriend was involved.


  • Both he and his brother have a peanut allergy.
  • Deji's birthday is the same as the release date of Tekken.
  • On the 13 May, 2020, speaking on the Mom's Basement Podcast, JJ claimed that Deji was a much better athlete than him.
  • Deji renamed his channel from 'ComedyShortsGamer' as his main channel is no longer a gaming channel.
  • Deji had hit 10,000,000 subscribers on March 29, 2020, but after reacting to JJ's reaction to his disstrack, he has lost around 80,000 subscribers as of May 15, 2020.
  • Deji says that he has properties as his other work outside of YouTube, which is also what JJ has.
  • Deji has asthma.
  • KSI and Deji's trainer Viddal Riley claims that Deji hits harder than KSI.
