Hushpuppi was born and spent most of his early days in Lagos state. But he has so far not revealed his State of Origin.

In many of his posts, he has explained that he didn’t start out rich. People who knew him in Lagos confirmed this report by claiming that he became rich after moving from Nigeria to Malaysia.

Hush is currently based in the United Arab Emirates but shuttles between different countries and lodges in expensive five-star hotels in several locations.

He oftentimes shows of his luxurious activities on his Instagram page where he keeps his fans updated with information about himself.

Hushpuppi’s Family and friends


We don’t have much information on Hushpuppi’s family members except what we’ve heard his former friends say.

During Ray’s early days, he used to flaunt his wealth alongside two other friends, Mompha and Classicbaggie. However, as things would turn out to be, Hushpuppi and his friends fell out.

Mompha was forced into revealing degrading facts about Raymond, to the point of even saying ‘his father is a taxi driver and his mother a bread seller’.

Hushpuppi neither denied nor confirmed those claims. However, he replied in a remark saying he’s a beggar and used to be a gambler.

There’s no fact to back Mompha’s claims, as it doesn’t make sense to believe someone who flaunts expensive Gucci products would allow his own mother to sell bread in the streets.

Girlfriend and Children

Hushpuppi is not married but has two children, a boy and a girl, from 2 different girlfriends. We do not know if he is currently in a relationship with any of his girlfriends.


As earlier noted, Hushpuppi keeps getting into fights with Nigerian celebrities.

They include Davido, Eniola Badmus, Kcee, Phyno and Timaya, Hushpuppi, to name but a few.

He once boasted that he was richer than Davido, and every other Nigerian musician. Further, he bragged about how he wears designers’ clothes while most Nigerian celebrities go about mounting fake wears.

He attacked both Phyno and Iceprince, for allegedly wearing fake Patek wristwatches, saying they shouldn’t complain when people pirate their music since they patronize fake things.

After hitting out at Timaya, claiming he was richer. Timaya in return dragged him and dared him to come back to Nigeria.

In a recent post, Hushpuppi took to Instagram to share a post addressing his various critics and friends.

He said: “I’m specially taking today out to appreciate every one of you great people out there that have met me in person from all over the world in the places I have been and showed me massive love over this internet fake hatred. A lot of you took the courage to say hi to me, take pictures with me and offered me drinks or take my bills and so many more in different locations all over the world.

“It’s amazing to experience such an amazing side of humans expressing love to one another sharing laughter, hugs and even as small as handshakes. Believe me, a lot of you told me you like what I do, you like how I brought myself and my family from nothing to something, how I believe in myself and how I changed the game and taught ni**as how not to be lame a**es when they get that money, taught them to take trips, wear on some good clothes not just drink champagne, smoke weed n gossip and at the same time some of y’all gave me advice to be careful and all that.

“I want you all to know I put every word you say to me into consideration and I never forget them and I really appreciate y’all who’s been supporting me through good n trouble times that I haven’t had the chance to meet and I promise you all it would be a wonderful experience when we cross path, never feel shy to say hi if you see me around”.

“Most importantly I want to thank you ‘hating a*s punks’, you’re part of the reason I never stop getting the money, I love you guys too. Yours Igbalodely, Hushpuppi aka Aja Puppi aka Aja 4,” he added.

Hushpuppi Arrest

Hushpuppi was arrested in his Dubai home for alleged involvement in fraud. The Commissioner for police INTERPOL, Garba Umar, confirmed the arrest, according to the Nation.

Furthermore, he stated that they were working on extraditing him to Nigeria to face justice and be used in fishing out his accomplices.

However, another report went on to claim that the American authority were tussling with Nigeria and hoping to win custody of Hushpuppi, since they believe he is involved in an unemployment fraud that cost the US government ‘hundreds of millions’ of dollars.

Meanwhile, the whole matter is still under investigation, with little or no information available to the public.

In the last post he shared on his page before the rumours of his arrest emerged, he showed off his new Rolls Royce Cullinan 2020, which is worth above N150 million.

While thanking God for the blessings in his life, he prayed that shame be the portion of those waiting for him to be shamed.

Since then, his account has been quiet. He hasn’t shared any post on his Instastory, suggesting he doesn’t have access to social media.


  • People have labeled and called Mr. Raymond all sorts of names, many of which he has neither confirmed nor denied.
  • Without a doubt, Hushpuppi is very rich and worth millions of dollars; however, his source of income remains a mystery to the Nigerian populace. Meanwhile, he claims he makes his money from real estate and luxury goods.
  • Huspuppi once admitted to having been addicted to gambling. Maybe that was how he hit millions. His popular nickname, Aja 4, indicates that he hit a lottery jackpot at some point. Those are just guesses, though. 
  • Raymond drives expensive cars including Rolls Royce, latest Range Rover and many more.
  • Celebrities he has fought with include Davido, Phyno, Tekno, Ice Prince, Patoranking, etc.
  • His name was mentioned in 9ice’s song — “living things” — believed to be promoting internet fraud.
