Hushpuppi is currently awaiting trial in the US following an arrest by Dubai Police at the end of June.
The Nigerian man, who called Dubai home for a stint, was arrested after a joint operation between Interpol, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Dubai Police over million-dollar fraud allegations.
AKA ‘the Billionaire Gucci Master,’ (and you’re ’bout to see why) he’s just been denied bail by a court in Chicago. His defence has repeatedly denied all allegations, stating his wealth is legitimate.
Hushpuppi has 2.5 million followers on Insta where supercars and luxury shopping sprees are standard pics
In late June, Dubai Police arrested the influencer and recovered AED150 million in cash, 13 cars worth $6.8m, 21 computers, 47 smartphones and hard disks containing the addresses of two MILLION victims
The takedown was organised and pulled off by Dubai Police.
Currently, awaiting trial in the US, Hushpuppi has now been denied Bail. He requested to stay with a relative nearby, however, the court stated that due to his potential access to large sums of cash and connections with other countries, he’s been deemed a flight risk

Mo'fuckers not loyal, everyone always just wants to use you and when they can't anymore their true color comes out and when you find people who truly love, care for you and support you mostly behind your back, appreciate them #Gucci #LifeIsGucci #BillionaireGucciMaster #NormalActivity

Good news for anyone who wants to visit Abu Dhabi… the testing process has just become more smooth.
People who want to visit the capital can be screened for COVID-19 on entry by a laser-based DPI technique. A negative result will allow entry to Abu Dhabi while a positive result will lead to further testing through a PCR test. IF you get a PCR test you must return to your residence and avoid contact with others until the results are available, according to a report by Abu Dhabi Media Office.
