It’s official!

YouTube superstar KSI is coming to town!

ITP Live, Dubai Summer Surprises, The Dubai Mall and PlayStation Middle East will be welcoming the YouTube star for an exclusive DSS Gaming Challenge on Saturday June 30 between 3pm and 5pm. 

DSS' ongoing gaming extravaganza has been taking place at The Dubai Mall since June 22 (finishing July 2), and has already played host to a number of local influencers, including Ahmed AL-Nasheet (@DVLZGames), artist Tareq AlHarbi (@6ar80), comedian Fahed Zounot (one half of comedy duo @punnypuntimes) and musician Grini Aka (@grini_f) all of whom faced off against each other in a mix of respective PlayStation bouts last weekend. 

Though the DSS Gaming Zone is open from 12pm every day, this Saturday, Al Nasheet and Tareq AlHarbi will be warming up the crowd with Saygin Yalcin from 2pm, before KSI takes to the stage at 3pm, grabbing a PlayStation controller for an exclusive game-off with influencers and competition winners. 

“I’m pumped to head back to Dubai this year to meet my viewers at The Dubai Mall for Dubai Summer Surprises 2018 and play at the Gaming Challenge event,” KSI said.

Remember guys, fans can also stop by the Star Atrium all this week and play a few games of PlayLink, FIFA World Cup 18 or Fortnite for a chance to win prizes such as limited edition PlayStations –  and the draw of potentially playing against KSI himself.

That’s right, one lucky champion will be chosen to battle it out against KSI on June 30.

How do I enter the competition?

While anyone can play FIFA, Fortnite and PlayLink for free on the consoles in the gaming zone, in order to enter the DSS competition - to win an array of prizes and potentially a once-in-a-lifetime face off against KSI - challengers must spend AED300 anywhere in the Dubai Mall. Simply show the DSS promoters on site your receipts, and they'll enter you in! 

FYI - if you spend that AED300 on PlayStation products, you'll automatically 
receive two competition entries.

***The DSS Gaming Zone is located in the Star Atrium, next to Five Guys in The Dubai Mall ***

KSI rose to fame in 2009 when he started uploading videos of himself gaming to YouTube.

Now, the British comedian-rapper-gamer has over 18 million subscribers on the video-sharing platform, making his YouTube channel the 36th most popular YouTube channel on the planet.
