YouTube and boxing star KSI has said that he plans to make music his “main priority” in 2020.

The internet personality, who is also set to make his live music TV debut during BBC One’s Sport Relief next Friday, said it was “kind of manic” to keep all of his various projects going.

Speaking at the Global Awards, he told the PA news agency: “Music is my thing this year but I still want to do the boxing, I’m still training, I still do YouTube, I still do videos for my friends.

“I’m still bouncing around but music is my main priority right now.”

KSI previously released single Wake Up Call in January, which reached number 11 in the charts.

That followed the success of his 2019 release Down Like That, which featured Rick Ross and Lil Baby.

He added that he is not fazed by trying to find success in so many fields and is able to remain “calm”.

“When it comes to me doing the TV stuff and all this more mainstream stuff, obviously it’s a big deal but I try to tell myself it’s not so I don’t get as nervous,” he said.

He added that roughly five times per week he will train for boxing for one to two hours and hopes to have another bout.

He has previously fought rival US YouTuber Logan Paul twice.

During the Global Awards KSI presented Tones And I with the best pop award alongside radio presenter Pandora Christie.
