KSI has learned to “protect” itself from criticism.
The YouTuber-turned-rapper “reads everything” people say about him online, but he’s developed a way to stay calm and down-to-earth in the face of criticism.
“I don’t want to live in this fairy tale world where everyone praises me and I am this god. I see what people say.
“Criticism, silly things, good things. But there are some other good comments. Comments.”
KSI, whose real name is Olajide Olatunji, has learned how to deal with negative emotions over the last few years. But he admits that it takes “practice.”
The 29-year-old star told The Sun’s Bizarre column: “You have to learn that it’s okay. It takes practice.
“I’ve had my ups and downs, but most of the time I’m calm. It’s not easy, but I can protect myself.”
KSI has previously admitted to being surprised by his success.
The music star, who has worked with the likes of Anne-Marie and Craig David, confesses to exceeding his expectations.
“Twenty years ago, when I was in the car with my parents, we were listening to ‘Seven Days’ and ‘Fill Me In’… so I was like, ‘How did we get here? 』 “
However, despite his fame and success, KSI still takes a low-key approach to music production and is determined to stay grounded.
