Amateur Boxing Career
Deji vs Jake Paul
After it was confirmed KSI would be boxing Logan Paul, Deji wanted to challenge Jake Paul to a boxing match. Jake Paul agreed and they were set to fight on August 25th, 2018. There were two press confrences, 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. One of Deji's friends attacked Greg Paul, Jake and Logan's dad. Jake Paul and Deji realesed disstracks on eachother.
Jake Paul won the boxing match, however Deji gave him a bloody nose. When Deji was in Los Angeles to make an appearance on Logan Paul's podcast "Impaulsive", Jake said he would accept Deji's request for a rematch at his place, but Deji didn't go because he was advised not to.
Randolph vs Deji
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. After this, Randoph 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 criticised him for.
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.
KSI vs Deji
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 disstrack and affirmed the truth of Randolphs disses whilst going at Deji as well as his parents for exposing his private bank account.
Deji then responded with a video saying that KSI had taken Randolphs side and it was an unfair beef with 6 vs 1. Deji then went on saying that he never gotten a girl pregant (something Randolph mentioned in his second disstrack) 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 disstrack 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 disstrack to keep things fair for the people featured in the disstrack. 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 Day, KSI came to visit the family, which resulted into 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 6th, 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 brother beef 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 did he made 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. He made a follow up video called "He's gone too far", where he shows what KSI did to respond to the situation.
