Oladeji Daniel “Deji” Olatunji, a British citizen of Nigerian descent, was born on December 9, 1996, in Watford, Hertfordshire, under the sign of the Sagittarius horoscope. He is a YouTuber best known for his 10.5 million subscriber-strong eponymous channel, which he began on December 1, 2011. Over 4.3 billion people have watched all of his videos, which mainly consist of reviews, challenges, jokes, and scenes with his loved ones and girlfriends.
Early Life, Education, And Family
Deji grew up next to his brother Olajide Olayinka Williams “JJ” Olatunji, best known online as “KSI,” a British rapper and YouTuber who founded the YouTube group “Sideman” and was placed second on “The Sunday Times'” list of the top 100 UK influencers.
Their parents, mother Yinka from Islington, London, and father Jide from Ibadan, Nigeria, raised them in Watford.
Deji’s family members were the subject of several controversies, particularly those involving his brother KSI. In November 2018, Deji released a video in which he revealed KSI’s bank records, setting off a fight between the two of them. KSI was also upset with their parents for allowing Deji to publicly disclose his financial information.
Although it took the brothers over two years to resolve their differences after KSI expelled Deji from his YouTube group, it appears that things are finally going well between the brothers. On June 20, 2021, Deji posted a video on his channel titled “Reunion With My Brother,” which has received over 850,000 likes and 8.5 million views. Deji attended a local high school, and after graduating in 2014, he focused on his YouTube career rather than enrolling in college.
Under the alias “ComedyShortsGamer,” Deji began his professional career by releasing gaming videos, mostly for the video games FIFA 12, Halo 2, Modern Warfare 3, and Tekken 6, as well as a few short sketches. But after changing his channel’s name to Deji, he began posting a variety of videos, primarily challenges, pranks, reactions, sketches, and music videos.
He also enjoys posting films about his vehicles. His first car was an Audi TT, which he crashed, followed by a Range Rover Autobiography, a Lamborghini Huracan, and a Lamborghini Aventador S.He also has a second YouTube channel called “Deji 2nd” that he started on August 27, 2011, and it now has 1.1 million subscribers and more than 135 million views overall. On this channel, he uploads gaming videos, varied stuff with his fiancée, and some replies to other topics.

There are many rumors surrounding Deji’s love life, but it is known that in 2014, he began dating Marina Joyce, a London-based YouTuber who was also reported missing on August 7, 2019. After being found and returned home, Marina uploaded a video explaining that she was depressed at the time and didn’t know what she was doing. Deji posted a video on YouTube in which he expressed his concern for her and asked her to call him so he could reassure her that he was there for her.
He had a brief relationship with Clara Hermet, a UK-based YouTuber and life coach. They had collaborated on some videos and participated in certain “try not to” challenges, but their breakup was kept a secret.
As of November 2021, Deji is in a relationship with Dounja, whom he first met in 2010. Nearly ten years later, they rekindled their acquaintance and began dating; she currently resides in Deji’s home in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, UK, with him and his parents. Although he used to publish films with his girlfriend labeled “we are having a baby,” which were pranks, Deji has never been married, engaged, or parented.
