This confirms his position in music and his other efforts.
KSI chats at his home in London, wearing his iconic headscarf, warm and friendly.
He first became famous by commenting on video games online, and is one of the richest YouTube anchors in the country, with an estimated net worth of £16 million.
His boxing match with American YouTuber in 2018 Logan Paul, In Manchester, broadcast live by 2.25 million fans. It ended in a tie, but KSI won their 2019 rematch at the Staples Center in Los Angeles-their professional debut without a head guard.
KSI was trained by the legendary uncle of the ring, Jeff Mayweather Floyd Mayweather -Not bad for someone who put on gloves for the first time a few years ago.
Although a person whose fingers are in many pies– He became famous on Celebrity Bake Off With the disastrous efforts of Cherry Grid-he is now focusing on music and has released a reliable second album.
He said: “In All Over The Place, I really pushed myself to the limit with all the types of beats and music I like.
“Whether I try dance or soundtrack, or poppy, diamond, or African rhythm music, I want to see what I can do and see how my own rotation is.
“This is not just a copy of other people. I did achieve greater accomplishments than I thought.”
KSI is ambitious but not fanciful. He said that he has been working hard to improve all aspects of his music and life.
He told me: “I always feel that there is no ceiling. You always have to push yourself to the limit. Once you reach the limit, you can push more. I always strive to be the best.
“I do have an arrogance, but I think everyone around me thinks that I am the greatest thing in all mankind.
“Some of me are not afraid to tell me no. When I am wrong, they are not afraid to tell me. I used to have a “yes person”. This is a toxic environment because it makes me feel that I am unshakable. Just like I can’t do it wrong, of course I will do it wrong.
I must have an arrogance, but I feel that the people around me suppressed the idea that I thought I was the greatest thing in all mankind.
“Someone around me grounds me, that’s good.”
In 2013, after KSI made indecent comments on women in a video shot at a game conference and was accused of contempt of rape, his career began a roller coaster.
“Of course I make mistakes, I am human”
He said: “I was very young and naive. I didn’t really understand the whole world.
“I’m in this bubble, and the audience supports everything I do. If I do something, the audience will say, “Yeah! ”
“I’m doing all these outrageous things, people just like it and accept it. Then I got to a point where I became bigger and people outside the audience started to look inward.
“I was called out, and the system was shocked because I realized that the world was much bigger than I thought. It made me realize that my way was wrong.
“I don’t really understand the Internet. I was thrown into this YouTube stuff. But I have learned and realized that I am a role model, so I always try to be my best. I have young, vulnerable fans , I tried to show them that by working hard, you can be whoever you want to be.
“In any case, always follow your dreams and make sure you are happy.
“I have been trying to promote this kind of good narrative, but obviously I make mistakes. I am human. No one is perfect. I always try to do my best. Whenever someone tries to deceive me or go deep into my skin , I will laugh it off.”
KSI’s first album Dissimulation put Watford rapper in second place last year.
He said: “I dabble in the water on my first album, just give it a try, I enjoy this experience.
“It’s pretty cool. I have high standards, if a song is not good enough, then go. I have made a few songs that I just scrapped of them. I want to make sure that whenever I take things out, people Everyone would say, “Wow, this is incredible! “I really want to get the first place through this.
“I have an album and recent singles on No2 and No3, but people like Olivia Rodrigo and Ed Sheeran always prevent me from entering No1.
“Anyway, I am very happy to be one of these artists.”
The new album includes collaborations with different names such as Craig David, Anne-Marie, Yungblud, Digital Farm Animals and Polo G.
KSI said: “For Craig, I didn’t expect him to make this song with me, because I am the’YouTuber who makes music’. But he heard this song and thought it was crazy.
“We sent him “True Love” because the beat is very garage, we think it is perfect for him.
“We use WhatsApp to send messages to each other to work on the track. He is cool.
“In Yungblud, he is a lively person. He is also very talented, which is really great. Combining my world and his world and creating Patience is a good thing. It’s a great game. Tao.”
‘Mom is very proud. . right now’
But KSI is most proud of its solo repertoire.
He said: “I am committed to my singing and different types of flow. I have different beats, I just try different things, and finally through this album, you know, everywhere-because this is what I really tried. .
“My friend Sam (Gumbley, aka producer SX and KSI’s Celebrity Goggles Box Partner) Help me sing just to try to make it as good as possible.
“He came with tracks like “Moment” and “No Time”. I started this album with Moment.
“This is really my attempt to show how much progress I have made since Dissimulation.
“There are singing and rap on that track. I am really showing that I am a different KSI, I am a different artist.”
KSI has also worked with AJ Tracey and Lil Pump, and he said he is an “open book” in terms of cooperation.
He explained: “I work with old and new people, everything is related to music.
“If I want to work with Adele, but the track is a training track, then I know it won’t work.
“With (guest singer) Gracey, when I was making beats with Toddla T, she was in the room and she came with a harmony that I thought was cool.
“I wrote the lyrics for Rent Free in the studio, and then she started singing the chorus. It was easy.
“For me, it’s all about music. I don’t care if I work for Drake or an unknown artist. If the music plays, then I’m very happy.”
The recent single holiday was influenced by KSI’s girlfriend, who the star described as “never afraid to call me out on my BS”.
He said: “She is great, and I am lucky to have someone like her. She is not afraid to tell me directly that this is necessary.
“You don’t want someone who loves everything you do and thinks you are great and will do everything you ask for.
“It’s not healthy. She likes the song and its emotions, but she thinks this video is creepy.”

Another woman in KSI’s life, his mother, finally returned to her son’s career choice after believing that her son had given up his private school education.
He said: “She likes what I do-now! She is very proud, but when I first became a YouTube user, we had a lot of arguments.
“She is a typical African mother and wants me to be a lawyer or a doctor. So for me, giving up being a YouTuber makes her crazy. There are many lines.
“But once she saw the money and saw that I was okay, she was proud now-especially now that I can buy her things.”
As the blockade began to ease and the album was released today, KSI looks forward to the future.
“Tickets for my tour are sold out at the end of the year, and there are many festivals that excite me — maybe there will be another boxing match at some point. There is also something about Sidemen,” he added to his old YouTube group .
“I have tomorrow’s KSI show, which almost integrates boxing, YouTube, performances and music into this piece of content for people to watch online.
“I have a camera that tracks from my bedroom to where I am today. There are people who influence my life, such as Logan Paul and Jack Whitehall, as well as musicians such as Craig David and Anne-Marie, and even Jonathan Ross. I can’t say too much, because this is a surprise.
“This is a great entertainment, with a few interesting and cool moments.
“People will look at it and think it’s incredible, because no one has done such a thing.”
