Embattled Nigerian socialite, Ramoni Abass aka Hushpuppi, has been reported to have sold second-hand clothes on the streets of Lagos State before he accumulated so much wealth, British newspaper, Daily Mail has reported.

The report read in part,

“Mr Abbas started out as a secondhand-clothes trader in Lagos before claiming to be a billionaire property developer in Dubai.”

There were also reports by some of his old friends that his father was a taxi driver in Nigeria.

Hushpuppi was apprehended in United Arab Emirates city, Dubai last month for allegedly diverting over half a billion dollars from private accounts through a series of fraudulent activities.

He alongside 12 others were subsequently extradited from the United Arab Emirates to the United States’ Federal Bureau of Investigation to face charges.
