Before claiming he was a billionaire property developer in Dubai, Abbas was a second hand clothing trader in Lagos, Nigeria. 

He claims that his social media account is meant to encourage people to be their best.

Hushpuppi once posted to his followers: 

” I post a few of these things so that someone can see my page someday and decide not to give up.”
