Nollywood actress, Uche Jombo has made a public request to popular American rapper, 50 Cent following the plans to release a movie series based on the Nigerian internet fraudster, Hushpuppi.
Naija News reports that 50 cent announced late Wednesday that he plans to release a television series inspired by Hushpuppi, who was jailed for 11 years in the U.S. for his role in a conspiracy to launder millions of dollars via online scams.
Recall, Ramon Olorunwa Abbas, popularly known as Ray Hushpuppi was sentenced by the United States District Judge, Otis D. Wright II, on Monday.
The judge also ordered Hushpuppi to pay $1,732,841 in restitution to two of his victims, according to a statement issued by the United States Department of Justice.
50 Cent who shared the pictures of the convict on his Instagram account on Wednesday noted that he is 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.”
Reacting to the development, Uche Jombo via the comment section of the American star pleaded with him to ensure the role is given to a Nigerian actor.
She wrote: ”Please give a Nigeria actor the opportunity to play this character.”
