Ray Hushpuppi, popularly known as Hushpuppi, Aja 4 or Aja Puppi, is a Nigerian media personality. He came into limelight after offering a lot of controversial remarks regarding several Nigerian celebrities.
He has even had heated war of words with some of the popular celebrities in Nigeria, most notably Davido.
Hushpuppi flaunts expensive clothings, wristwatches, shoes, etc. on his social media handles. As expected, his luxurious lifestyle and controversial opinions have helped earn him both friends and foes.
Hushpuppi’s real name is Raymond Igbalodely. He was born on the 14th of June, but his year of birth remains unknown as are many information regarding him.
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 Malaysia but can be seen traveling around the world and visiting expensive five star hotels in several locations.
A lot of people have claimed that Hushpuppi is a brand ambassador for the designer wears he flaunts. We cannot confirm that for now.
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 be 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 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.
He took to Instagram to share a post addressing his various critics and friends.
He said: “I’m specially taking today out to appreciate everyone 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 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 amazing side of humans expressing love to one another sharing laughters, 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 niggas how not to be lame asses 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 advices 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”.
