Hence, little wonder the Nigeria media company called, EbonyLife Studios is making a movie about him. EbonyLife Studios has in partnership with Hollywood's Will Packer Productions has secured the adaptaion rights to the viral Bloomberg article titled "The Fall Of A Billionaire Gucci Master" by Evan Ratliff based on Hushpuppi's life story.



What's The Real Name Of Hushpuppi?

Ramon Olorunwa Abbas.


Ramon Abbas, also known as Hushpuppi, garnered massive internet fame by flaunting his wealth on social medias. He was majorly known for his obsession with the Italian luxury fashion, Gucci, before he was arrested in Dubai last year. Eventually, he was found guilty of the multiple charges of money laundering filed against him, following an investigation and trial in a US court. The amount of the money laundered totally about $24 million.


 
On Instagram, EbonyLife Studios CEO, Mo Abudu revealed how she pitched the story to Will Parker and James Lopez, shortly after the Bloomberg article went viral. And also, how they eventually acquired the adaptation right after a contested race. 

Abudu also revealed why she was keen about the project, thereby, emphasizing on the need to ensure authenticity of the story and an insider perspective. She stated further, how important it is to prevent a generalization of the belief that all Nigerians are into cybercrimes. She stated emphatically, "All Nigerians are not scammers". Drawing examples from the work of Martin Scorsese who portrayed “richly layered criminal characters from his heritage without ever creating the impression that all Italian-Americans are members of the mafia”.



The project is now set up at Universal Pictures.

EbonyLife Studios is the brain behind some of the biggest Nigerian movies. Few of which are, Fifty, The Royal Hibiscus Hotel, Oloture, Chief Daddy, and Nigeria’s top-grossing The Wedding Party 1 & 2.
 

Among Willparker’s blockbusters are Girls Trip, Think Like a Man, Ride Along, and the BeyoncĂ©-starred Obsessed.
