For the first time in recent years, Hushpuppi’s birthday went unmarked on social media, as friends abandon the popular Nigerian fraudster.
Ramon Abbas a.k.a Ray Hushpuppi, is a Nigerian Instagram celebrity, who is well known for sharing images of his extravagant lifestyle on social media.
His birthdays usually see celebs and friends flood the social media space with well wishes to him, but this year is obviously an exception.
Hushpuppi is currently facing up to 20 years in prison after pleading guilty to various offences bordering on internet scam, money laundering, among others, and the Special Assistant on Special Duties to the Delta State Governor, Ossai Ovie Success, believes there is something to be learnt from the obvious silence by many this year.
Taking to his official Facebook page, Ossai advised people to stop tying to impress others. He wrote;
“Hushpuppi was not celebrated on his birthday. Yesterday was his birthday but was forgotten by everyone including people who benefited from him or knows him,”
I think people should learn from the life of Hushpuppi. We should stop trying to impress people.
People will praise you when they are benefiting from you and when they stop benefiting, they will forget about you and even give you bad names
Hushpuppi impressed us with his luxurious lifestyle and when he stopped impressing us as a result of his arrest, people stopped associating with him, posting him on social media , celebrating him and talking about him
That is the world for you. The truth is when you tried impressing people, you will do all kind of things to keep to that standard of impressing.
People are living in debts, pains, depression as a result of impressing people. People that are into fraud today are doing so to impress people which will definitely hurt them back.
If you want to be happy in life quit trying to impress other people. It just doesn’t work. It has never worked. It will never work. You might be able to impress a few people. You might even be able to impress a lot of people. But you will never impress everyone
