A television series on renowned conman Ramon Abbas, also known as Hushpuppi, is being developed by American rapper, actor, and businessman Curtis James Jackson III, best known by his stage as 50 Cent.

“For my scammers I gotta do this one, Hushpuppi series coming soon!” 50 Cent said beside a photo of Hushpuppi as he announced the news on his Instagram page on November 9, 2022.

The rights to the 2021 release of the Bloomberg story “The Fall of the Billionaire Gucci Master,” about the Instagram influencer Hushpuppi, were purchased by Universal Pictures, Will Packer Productions, and Mo Abudu’s EbonyLife before to the announcement of 50 Cent. The majority of Nigerians’ responses to this action were unfavorable.

The well-known Nigerian, already well-known for his extravagant lifestyle, gained even more attention after his arrest in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE), in June 2020. He was detained on many cybercrime-related offenses before being extradited to the USA on allegations of money laundering and computer fraud. Hushpuppi filed a guilty plea to charges of multi-million dollar fraud in April 2021, according to court papers published by the US Department of Justice (DoJ).

He pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to conduct money laundering in April 2021, ten months after his arrest. As previously reported by Pulse, Hushpuppi was sentenced by Judge Otis D. Wright II to 11 years in jail and a $1.7M payment to two fraud victims.
