A brief video of Hushpuppi video-chatting with a pal from prison is making the rounds online just 72 hours after news broke that the well-known Nigerian socialite and internet celebrity had been given an 11-year term.
Hushpuppi, who was detained in Dubai in June 2020 and extradited to the US on charges of computer fraud and money laundering, will only serve nine years in prison because he has already served two years in a US prison, according to a previous report.
He was punished after entering a guilty plea to conspiracy to launder money with several individuals both inside and outside the United States.
In the brief video that has gone viral, Hushpuppi is heard praising his appearance before going before a US judge. He added that he never imagined himself being in the US to face justice for his crime.
His friend shared the video with the caption “Hushpuppi checked for me today”.
