Rapper, M.anifest has stated that making an honest modest living is not respected in this part of the world.
He noted that this is where most of the problems stem from.
His comment comes on the back of Nigerian social media celebrity, Hushpuppi’s arrest in Dubai days ago.
The popular figure was arrested in connection with fraudulent activities.
He scammed almost two million victims with his gang who the Dubai police said were directing unsuspecting victims’ money into their own account.
After four months of Dubai police monitoring their movements on social media and about six simultaneous raids on the operation ‘Fox Hunt 2’ led them to their residence and they were picked up.
Dubai police shared the video to Twitter showing the operation.
According to the narrator in the video, “six raids were carried out simultaneously while the suspects were sleeping in their Dubai residencies.”
“After months of investigating and hours of monitoring the gang’s social media accounts, a team of highly trained Dubai Police Officers were able to confirm the gang’s whereabouts and fraudulent activities,” the voice narrated.
Hushpuppi is known for flaunting his luxurious lifestyle on Instagram always claiming he was a businessman and a real estate developer.
Prior to his arrest, “Dubai e-police teams were tracking his every move and taking note of all his social media activities.”
The narrator further noted that the police saw evidence of the gang hacking people’s accounts and redirecting their monies into their own accounts.
The police say the gang was connected to several cybercrimes and has scammed 1,9926,400 people to the tune of one Billion 600 Million Dirhams.

After the news surfaced on the internet, it has generated talks where people are even scaring others who seem to be living luxurious lives on social media that their judgment day is near.
Others also used the opportunity to advise the youth to make an honest living.
Also sharing his view, Manifest in a tweet said, “Making an honest modest living is not respected in these parts. A lot of our problems begin here.”
