This is similar to some blog sites claiming that internet fraudster Ramon Abass, also known as Hushpuppi, has died.
According to news reports on Hushpuppi’s death, “now he is no longer Hushpuppi.” He is now known as Abbas. He buried his true name in a coffin of lies and deception.”
According to this online news platform, Hushpuppi died on Wednesday, February 23, 2022, after a Nigerian journalist, Kemi Olunloyo, made a tweet that was misinterpreted to suggest that Hushpuppi, who pleaded guilty and will be sentenced to a 20-year prison term, was dead.
Who exactly is Hushpuppi?
On October 11, 1982, Ramon Olorunwa Abbas, also known as Hushpuppi, Hush, or Ray Hushpuppi, was born. The Nigerian big boy, 38, was born and raised in Lagos State, Nigeria. He attended Government College in Ikorodu, Lagos State, for his secondary education.
Hushpuppi, an Instagram sensation, rose to prominence after the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) released detailed documents detailing how Supercop, Abba Kyari, worked for Hushpuppi.
According to FBI documents, it was discovered during the investigation that DCP Abba Kyari had a relationship with Hushpuppi, which lasted until the latter was arrested. The documents revealed that, while the investigation was ongoing, Hushpuppi allegedly took Kyari on an all-expenses-paid trip to Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE), where he was treated like a president from the moment he stepped off the plane.
There has been no report of Hushpuppi’s death, nor has Kemi Olunloyo tweeted that Hushpuppi is dead; instead, the controversial journalist only tweeted: “Your boy is dead oo… They won’t announce it yet,” which has since gone viral, with some online media platforms quoting the pharmacist as saying Hushpuppi is dead
The name of the boy Kemi claimed was dead was not mentioned in this tweet, and his death had yet to be announced.
Kemi Olunloyo has debunked reports that she confirmed Hushpuppi’s death, advising her followers to avoid blogs that reported the fake news.
