Singer BNXN’s old tweet resurfaces as some internet users uncover his plea for financial assistance online.
The tweet, dated March 2017, shows BNXN, formerly known as Buju, requesting money from Hushpuppi, a notorious internet fraudster turned social media influencer.
BNXN shared his bank details and tagged Hushpuppi in the post. Prior to this, he had also expressed frustration with his bank for deducting N100 from his account, which only had N1000.
“Good morning everyone Except Diamond Bank, Y’all did me dirty😥 I had only 1k in that account I planned to w-draw today, Y’all debited #100”, BNXN wrote in 2016.
BNXN disclosed that he had been receiving credit alerts throughout the entire day of November 17, 2023, after trending for the entire day.
He shared a screenshot of the old tweet and wrote; “I just dey receive credit since morning. So na why ??!! 😂😂😂”

Ramon Olorunwa Abbas, also known as Hushpuppi was sentenced to more than 11 years in federal prison by a US court in Los Angeles, California. The 40-year-old fraudster was also ordered to pay $1,732,841 in restitution to two victims of his online scams.
The judge accused Hushpuppi of conspiring to launder tens of millions of dollars and living a lavish lifestyle funded by his criminal activities, which he flaunted on social media. Hushpuppi pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to engage in money laundering in April 2021, 10 months after his arrest in Dubai, UAE.
Hushpuppi has remained in US federal custody since his expulsion from the UAE.
“Abbas bragged on social media about his lavish lifestyle – a lifestyle funded by his involvement in transnational fraud and money laundering conspiracies targeting victims around the world,” said United States Attorney Martin Estrada.
“Money laundering and business email compromise scams are a massive international crime problem, and we will continue to work with our law enforcement and international partners to identify and prosecute those involved, wherever they may be.”
