Even kings fall, right? Check out the breaking story of Nigerian influencer Hushpuppi as he is arrested in Dubai by the FBI. Read more!

As controversial Nigerian born USA based blogger Kemi Olunloye stated in the Instagram post that broke the news:

“Every day for the thieves, one day for the owner”

The alleged culprits in this hot, international-trending eagle-like arrest news being the infamous Nigerian “big boy” and IG influencer Raymond Igbalodely aka Hushpuppi by a joint team of the U.S. FBI, INTERPOL and even the Nigerian DSS.


Hushpuppi and Woodberry, real businessmen or crooks?

Allegedly, the rumored Yahoo Kingpin was accosted in company with a friend, also another Nigerian “big boy” Mr. Woodberry.

@hushpuppi’s cars and houses are legendary in the social media space, as bloggers routinely salivate over the latest flaunting of his newest exotic rides and palaces. Among other cars Hushpuppi owns is also a Limited Edition Ferrari 458 Italia with an estimated cost at ₦150 million.

@mrwoodbery’s car collection is no less famous, as it is only marginally less in number and expense than his friend, Hushpuppi’s fleet.

As Nigerian IG and Twitter remain aflame with counter comments, arguments, and vitriol, there was some discussion as to what this could do to Visa chances of the ordinary Nigerians, whom, sadly, this kind of event negatively fallouts on.

It’s no news that the different Yahoo formats by Nigerians have resulted in almost automatic suspicion for all Nigerians once they go overseas.

The question everyone is asking though is: “Is there evidence that Hushpuppi and Woodberry are truly Yahoo boys?” Going by their lifestyles, which is loud, flamboyant, and in fact, bordering on the ostentatious, there seems little doubt. Especially when you factor in the glaring fact that they have never displayed any tangible form of a legitimate income stream.

In like manner, another suspected Yahoo boy, Ismail Mustapha, aka Mompha had his claimed Beaureux de Change

On Sunday, as if in a foreshadowing of the week’s latter events, Hushpuppi had posted:

“May success and prosperity not be a “once upon a time” story in your life… Thank you lord for the many blessings in my life. continue to shame those waiting for me to be shamed.”

Though details are sketchy, the case involves some $100 million in siphoned funds meant for Native Americans as part of the U.S. Government’s COVID-19 support. Allegedly Hushpuppi and Woodberry were able to hack the database and plant hundreds of fraudulent beneficiaries. The arrests were made Tuesday at the Versace Apt in Dubai.
