As one of the most influential voices on social media, KSI is to be the subject of a new Louis Theroux documentary on Amazon Prime.
The 28-year-old rapper and YouTube star has even had a stint at boxing with a match against Logan Paul earlier this year. What's more, Paul said he hits harder than Floyd Mayweather.
Teasing the new documentary, Amazon Prime said: "With over 35 million subscribers to his YouTube channels, and recognisable to fans across the world, KSI, aka Olajide Olatunji or 'JJ' for short, is one of the most influential online stars of his generation.
"At just 28 years old, his videos have been watched more than eight billion times, having started out as a tenacious 13-year-old, building a following online across gaming, boxing, music and raucous adventures with the Sidemen.
"With the release of his #1 second album, preparation for his sold-out European tour and a headline show at The SSE Arena, Wembley, amongst many other significant moments, this year is the biggest in JJ's career.
"Through this intimate documentary we will take the audience inside the world of a global star as he transcends the online world he dominates to become one of this generations most talked about performing artists and prove to his critics he's here to stay."
This won't be KSI's first documentary. In 2016, KSI was featured in a BBC Three documentary titled Rise of the Superstar Vloggers and in 2018, KSI: Can't Lose was released ahead of his fight against Logan Paul.
In 2014, he starred in KSI Demolished on Comedy Central, which saw him getting roasted by British comedians. KSI has also appeared on countless well-known TV shows - Celebrity Bake-Off, Celebrity GoggleBox and Top Gear, to name a few.
Amazon Prime has confirmed the doc will be out in 2022, but it hasn't yet set an exact date. We'll let you know as soon as we know anything.
"He is a huge talent, a totally self-created phenomenon who has gone from bedroom-bound nerd with a handful of subscribers to an online colossus with fans in the millions, purely through the power of his work ethic and his will to win," said Louis Theroux.
"I'm super-excited for people to finally see what I mean by 'hard work,'" KSI said of the new documentary. "People will get to see behind the scenes of the key events in my life, and I'll show them how I do everything I do."
