American rapper and producer, Curtis James Jackson III, popularly known as 50 Cent, has announced plans to release a movie series on the story of notorious Nigerian internet fraudster, Ramon Abass, aka Hushpuppi.
Recall that, Hushpuppi was arrested in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates in June 2020, for defrauding over 1.9 million people, majority of whom were Americans.
He was afterwards extradited to the United States for trial on July 3, the same year.
iBrandtv reports that Hushpuppi was sentenced to 11 years and three months’ imprisonment on Monday by a United States District Court sitting at the Central District of California after he was found guilty of laundering proceeds of a school financing scam, business email compromise and other fraudulent cyber schemes.
The 37 years old had earlier pleaded guilty to the charges filed against him during the trial.

However, in a recent development, 50 Cent shared a photo of Hushpuppi via his Instagram page on Wednesday announcing that he was working on a movie project based on Hushpuppi’s story.
The G-Unit Records founder wrote in the caption, “For my scammers I gotta do this one. Hushpuppi series coming soon! GLG, Green Light Gang I don’t miss. #Bransoncognac #lecheminduroi #gunitfilmandtv.”
