Australian fans camp out overnight to see KSI and Logan Paul, the scenes are insane
| Last updated
Logan Paul and KSI have journeyed to Australia to promote Prime as part of their new partnership with the UFC.
The pair didn’t receive the warmest of welcomes at UFC in Perth, catching a flurry of boos when they came up on the screen.
But it’s fair to say Australia certainly has a whole lot of love for the pair.
Paul and KSI, real name Olajide Olatunji, made the trip to Sydney where they were set to meet a flock of fans.
Fans camped out overnight outside the Channel 9 building in hopes of catching a glimpse of the social media sensations.
They were set to meet the fans in North Sydney, with lines starting at 7 am.
But with the promise of Prime for the first 2,000 fans, some thought they’d get in super early and settle in for the night.
The response seemingly took both the YouTuber-turned-boxers by surprise.
KSI tweeted: “I’ve been in Sydney for less than an hour and it’s already being crazy lmao.”

Logan Paul responded: “Insane energy.”
The British YouTuber posted a video that showed the true extent of the pandemonium in front of them.
KSI wrote: “Aussie fans are crazy for Prime man.”
In the video, the former boxing rivals could be seen making their way out onto the balcony as the fans wait in anticipation.
As they step out into the open the crowd absolutely erupted into insane scenes.
Perhaps even more hilarious is the fact that the cheer from the dedicated lads is even louder when KSI takes off his headband to show off his forehead.
It was truly chaotic as thousands of rowdy young fans cheered for their internet idols.
The Daily Telegraph reports that things got out of control when a security guard monitoring the crowd was thrown to the ground by the attendees.
There was a mass push toward the barricade which reportedly resulted in ‘multiple’ fans being injured.
Paul and KSI joined Australian television host Karl Stefanovic at around 8 am where they discussed their extraordinary rise.
At one point an egg was hurled toward Stefanovic from the crowd.
