YouTuber turned boxer KSI paid a fan’s £18,000 university debts after losing a game of ‘rock, paper, scissors’. Check out the footage below.
KSI met Jordan Macmillan at a recent event and was challenged to the game with high stakes involved.
The 28-year-old said he’d pay Jordan, who is a student, a sum of £9000 if he could beat him.
What happened next will warm your heart. Jordan won two games and KSI sent through £9000 twice via bank transfer to give Jordan a tidy sum of £18,000.
“I was absolutely shocked, I couldn’t believe it,” 22-year-old Jordan told The Sun. “He’s such a nice guy so I had no doubt he’d send it but I was so shocked he sent it that quickly.
“It still hasn’t settled in yet. I’m not sure it ever will. I sent him a message after to thank him trying to keep my cool but I couldn’t. I then phoned my family, tears everywhere. I still can’t believe it, I’ll probably invite him to my graduation.”
He helped shape a generation of kids with his online antics and that’s helped him transition into other business ventures.
Real name Olajide Olayinka Williams Olatunji and also know as JJ, KSI helped co-found ‘The Sidemen’ with six other YouTubers and launched a successful rap career.
Boxing would soon follow and he took on Logan Paul twice, drawing the first fight which was an exhibition and winning the second fight which was professional.
Jordan added: “JJ asked how long was left in my tuition. I told him two years, so £18,000.
“Vikk [Vikkstar123, YouTuber and member of the Sidemen] suggested that he pay one year – £9,000 – which is what we agreed on in the end. So we played rock, paper, scissors and I won and just started laughing.
“I was in shock. He then followed me on Instagram and got my details.
“We got pictures and had a chat; they were quite excited when I told them I study football coaching and management.
“I later got a message from him saying, ‘Enjoy it brother,’ so I checked my account and he send me £18,000 for both years.”
KSI has said he’ll return to boxing to face Jake Paul, the younger brother of former foe and now business partner Logan.
