KSI is launching his new album on Roblox
Roblox has tens of millions of players logging in each month
These events aren’t unheard of: Fortnite regularly hosts major musical showcases, most recently with a virtual Ariana Grande tour.
But now hit YouTuber KSI will perform four songs during a Roblox “launch party”.
All of the tracks are from his new album All Over The Place.
The event kicks off on Friday, August 13 at 4pm California time – or midnight in London.
If that time doesn’t work for you, don’t panic.
The event is set to repeat every single hour for two days, finishing up at 11pm California time on Sunday, August 15 – or 7am on Monday for Brits.
Roblox players will be able to enjoy the event for free on any supported platform.
And there will be in-game goodies to collect too.
These include KSI’s hairstyle, boxing belt, golden headphones and more.
Roblox is one of the most popular games in the world.
It’s a free-to-play title that lets players create their own games and game worlds – and share them with pals.
Part of the game’s success is thanks to the fact that it’s available on mobile platforms like iPhone and Android – as well as Xbox and PC.
As of August 2020, Roblox had an incredible 164million users playing each month.
And it’s estimated that over half of all children under the age of 16 in the USA had played Roblox.
KSI is one of the UK’s biggest online influencers – and is a global celebrity.
His career began in 2009 when he launched a YouTube channel focusing on Fifa.
But his YouTube eventually grew and now includes comedy and general vlog clips.
Real name Olajide Olayinka Williams Olatunji, the 28-year-old has racked up tens of millions of subscribers and billions of video views.
KSI has taken part in amateur boxing matches, and has kickstarted a rap career to boot.
His debut studio album Dissimulation came out last year, and debuted at number 2 on the UK Albums Chart.
He’s also secured 12 ‘Top 40’ singles, seven of which entered the ‘Top 10’ of the UK Singles Chart.
