Reno Omokri knocks US Rapper, 50 Cent, for planning to shoot TV series on Hushpuppi

Former presidential aide, Reno Omokri has chided popular American rapper, 50 cent, over his planned movie on convicted Nigerian Fraudster, Hushpuppi.

Just recently, 50 Cent caused a buzz on the Nigerian social media space after he shared his plans with his fans.

The US star had taken to his Instagram page to reveal that he was considering making a movie series about the popular Nigerian scammer.

Shortly after the post was made, his comment section and social media was overrun with comments from Nigerians as they reacted to the news.

One of those who reacted was the People Democratic Party’s spokesperson, Reno Omokiri, who expressed his displeasure over the move, stating that the tv series will further tarnish “Nigeria already battered image.”

Reno, who took to his Instagram handle to condemn the development, advised 50 Cent to rather create a series on  Nigeria’s biggest achievements.

He wrote:

Not impressed by 50 Cents planned movie on Hushpuppi. It will further tank Nigeria’s already battered image. Many positive things come out of Nigeria, like Dr. Oluyinka Olutoye, the first man to successfully perform surgery on an unborn baby outside its mother’s womb, and restore it back in its mums womb after the procedure.

Do a movie about fraud, then he should consider doing one on Bernie Madoff, an American whoo stole $50 billion, thereby pulling off the biggest heist ever on Earth.”


Hushpuppi hogged headlines when the International Police in Dubai nabbed him after months of being investigated.

According to the reports, he was sentenced to 11 years in prison and ordered to pay back $1.7 million (₦748,133,288) in restitution to two fraud victims.
