50 Cent, Hushpuppi
American rapper and movie producer, Curtis James Jackson, otherwise called 50 Cent, says he has plans to produce a television series about the convicted Nigerian scammer, Ramon Olorunwa Abass, also known as Hushpuppi.
Hushpuppi, a Nigerian social media influencer, was sentenced to 11 years in prison on Monday by a United States District Court for money laundering conspiracy through several online scams and flaunting a luxurious, crime-funded lifestyle on social media.
However, in a post accompanied by the photo of the convicted fraudster on his Instagram page barely 48 hours after Hushpuppi’s sentencing, the producer wrote, “For my scammers, I gotta do this one, Hushpuppy series coming soon.”
Hushpuppi was arrested in his Dubai apartment in June 2020, by local police, in a joint operation with United States agents known as Foxhunt.
