KSI Says He Had Reading & Leeds Performance Taken Off iPlayer Because It's ‘So Different’ To Live Version

KSI has claimed he asked the BBC to remove his Reading and Leeds Festival performance from iPlayer and YouTube as the live version was 'so different'.

The YouTuber shared two versions of his performance on Twitter - one he says was taken from a BBC broadcast, while the other is a 'real life' recording.

He claimed the BBC version had used 'auto tune', which was not used during his live performance.

He went on to say he believed it was a 'genuine mistake', but wanted the live version shared on iPlayer and YouTube instead.

Posting on Twitter, KSI - real name Olajide William Olatunji - explained: "As you can see, the live version and the BBC version are so different.

"I'm sure this was a genuine mistake but we have had it taken down from YouTube and iPlayer so we can get the original version reuploaded for you all to enjoy!

"Thanks again for the best weekend Reading & Leeds."

While a third commented: "Why does it sound like they put a phaser over the vocals?

"Even then if they want to do that then make it less obvious because it sounded so messy."

Earlier today, KSI tweeted: "Why did @BBC add so much auto tune to my performance lol? Hold up, I'm about to make a video and put it here."

A spokesperson for the BBC confirmed to LADbible that the footage was being re-uploaded onto BBC iPlayer.

KSI's performance at the festival comes just days after he announced he was releasing a 'deluxe' edition of his number selling album All Over The Place featuring new tracks with Anne-Marie, Jay-1 and more.

Posting on Twitter he wrote: "After the huge success of the album and getting a number one, it felt necessary to celebrate with the release of a deluxe version.
