Addiction to women, alcohol, drugs, and extravagance are some of the characteristics that define men in Hushpuppi’s class. For Hushpuppi, his trademark was lavish shopping, show off, and internet spats.
He shared his personal affairs with the world through his Instagram and Snapchat handles. The only part he managed to hide from the prying eyes of the public? The women in his life. Well, until 2017 when he had issues with an estranged friend and partner-in-crime Ismaila Mustapha aka Mompha.
That year, details about some of the women in his life came to public knowledge after Mompha accused him of neglecting his mother, baby mama and son despite his flamboyant lifestyle on the internet. It was from the controversy that it became known that Hushpuppi’s mother lives in Lagos and he has two children from different women he is not married to.
In a 2018 interview, he claimed his mother was 63 years old and that she visited him frequently in Dubai. But ‘he chose not to share her picture on social media’ because he cherishes her a lot. He had claimed his father taught him that “Anything you love or want to last, keep it a mystery from the people. What they don’t know they can’t ruin.” He claimed that is the reason why he keeps his mother and girlfriend away from the public. “I don’t post my family to entertain total strangers on the internet,” he wrote in one particular post.
One of the grievances Hushpuppi claimed he has with Nigeria and often cited as his reason for leaving the country is the death of his sister. Before his arrest he had shared a story of how he lost his sister because he couldn’t afford N3000 to pay hospital bills at a public hospital in Lagos.
Miss Sho – first Baby Mama
Hushpuppi’s first baby mama, identified simply as Miss Sho, gave birth to his first son – Dior. The duo got entangled in a social media drama in 2017 over accusations that Hushpuppi was a deadbeat dad, a claim he denied with several photos of financial transactions and gifts he claimed to have sent to his son.
Second Baby Mama
Little is known about her except that she is the mother of Jayden, Hushpuppi’s daughter and second child. He has managed to keep information about her away from the public.
Amirah Dyme – German model
There were also reports that German model Amirah Dyme was Hushpuppi’s girlfriend. They were said to have met in Dubai where Hushpuppi was based before his arrest. In the past, she had shared photos of moments she was with Hushpuppi on Instagram. Following reports of his arrest on June 10, Dyme took to her Instagram page to share a post that appears to be a subliminal attack on the fraud suspect. “Imagine telling someone they’re not good enough to come and sit with the “rich people” because of how they’re dressed when they bought their clothes with their own money while you literally STOLE the money that you used to buy outfits with from poor people. Karma is a b*tch. Hope you like orange,” She wrote.
Shawana Nakesia Chapman – His wife
New details are now emerging about Chapman who is believed to be legally married to Hushpuppi. To the surprise of many, his lawyer Gal Pissetzky announced last week that he is married to Shawana Nakesia Chapman, a citizen of St. Kitts and Nevis, a Carribean Island in North America.
The government of St. Kitts and Nevis have also confirmed in a statement that Hushpuppi was granted a passport as a citizen in February 2020 by virtue of his marriage to Chapman in October 2018.
