Hushpuppi faces 20 years jail term.
A Nigerian influencer who amassed millions of Instagram followers posting images of his luxury lifestyle and motivational messages has admitted to being a con-man.
Ramon Abbas, 37, who is known to his fans as Hushpuppi or the Billionaire Gucci Master, admitted to conning at least $24million out of businesses around the world including $1million meant for a children’s hospital in Qatar.
Abbas, who grew up the son of a taxi-driver father and bread-seller mother in a poor town near Lagos before moving to a penthouse in Dubai, now faces spending the next 20 years of his life behind bars in the US, WonderTV Media gathered.
His other targets included a Maltese bank and several companies linked to an unnamed Premier League football club, the FBI says.
