50 Cent Set To Produce Movies Series On Hushpuppi

American rapper and producer, Curtis Jackson aka , has announced plans to release a movie series based on convicted Nigerian internet fraudster, Ramon Abbas Igbalode alias Hushpuppi.

He made this known in a Facebook post on Wednesday, November 9 while attaching pictures of the internet celebrity.

According to 50 Cent, he was working on a movie series which will focus on Hushpuppi's story as a cyber scammer.

He wrote; “For my scammers I gotta do this one. Hushpuppy series coming soon! GLG, Green Light Gang I don't miss. #Bransoncognac #lecheminduroi #gunitfilmandtv.”

Hushpuppi was arrested in Dubai in 2020 for swindling over 1.9 million people and he was consequently extradited to the United States for trial.

On Monday, the court sentenced Abbas to 11 years and 3 months in federal prison for fraud. The social media personality was also ordered to pay $1.7m in restitution to two victims.

Justice Otis D. Wright II sentenced Hushpuppi for money laundering conspiracy through several online scams and flaunting of a luxurious, crime-funded lifestyle on social media.

Meanwhile, the United States, in a statement issued by the court, stated that Abbas had bragged on social media about his lavish lifestyle – a lifestyle funded by his involvement in transnational fraud and money laundering conspiracies targeting victims around the world.

“This significant sentence is the result of years' worth of collaboration among law enforcement in multiple countries and should send a clear warning to international fraudsters that the FBI will seek justice for victims, regardless of whether criminals operate within or outside United States borders.”
