50 Cent to shoot Hushpuppi TV series

American rapper and movie producer 50 Cent has announced plans to make a TV series about the convicted Nigerian fraudster Ramon Abass aka Hushpuppi.

Hushpuppi was recently sentenced by a US court to 11 years and three months in prison for online fraud running into millions of dollars. He is also to restitute $1.7 million to two persons.

50 Cent, who had in the past produced hit TV series like Power, Power Book II, Power Book III: Raising Kanan, said on Wednesday night via Instagram that he would make a story off Hushpuppi.

“For my scammers I gotta do this one, Hushpuppy series coming soon ! GLG🚦GreenLightGang I don’t miss,” the man born Curtis James Jackson III wrote.

Majority of Hushpuppi’s victims were Americans. He has been in custody since his arrest in Dubai in 2020.

The Nigerian had a penchant for flaunting lavish lifestyle on Instagram which won him a lot of followers on the photo-sharing app.

Instagram has since deactivated his account.
