Richest Yahoo boy in Nigeria
Not everyone earns money online in proper ways. Some turn to illegal activities, one of which is scamming people out of their money. Such people are known as Yahoo boys (due to the frequent use of fake Yahoo emails). A lot of them get very rich, and they sure love to flaunt it.
Usually, their expensive cars, houses, telephones, hotels and resorts get into the camera lens. Each year, people speculate about who among the Yahoo boys is the richest, and this year, many fingers pointed at Ray HushPuppi.
Can he be regarded as the richest Yahoo boy in 2019 due to his high popularity on social networks, especially on Instagram? Hushpuppi does not hide his riches, he openly puts everything on display on social networks for both his fans and haters to drool over.
Now, when it comes to the details, we know very little about the Lagos Big Boy. It is not a secret that Ray was from a low-income family, but his life has changed since he left Nigeria.

Everyone wonders how exactly he earns his money. He once posted on Snapchat that he was a professional beggar, but it is unclear whether he was joking or not. Nevertheless, he spends quite a large amount of money daily.
The real name of this rich man is Raymond Igbalode. He is originally from Nigeria and was born on June 14. He has repeatedly told his followers not to bend over in his world, you should not kiss anyone's feet.
Ray has one of the largest number of followers. He has 1.6 million people on his Instagram page (@hushpuppi). Hushpuppi can easily compete for popularity with quite famous personalities and musicians. A few years ago, he had a social media dispute with none other than Davido, but it seems like it was short-lived, as the two were soon seen together as if nothing ever happened.
Most recently, he was in Dubai, where he almost daily shared photos of his shopping from various well-known brands, such as Fendi, Gucci, Balenciaga, Louis Vuitton, etc. on Instagram. He pays great attention to luxury living.
He wants to be considered the king of Gucci in Nigeria. It is one of the most popular brands in his life. He buys everything with a Gucci label on it: watches, shoes, clothes, bags, accessories and other things.
Recently, Naija Bad Boy got a new home for all his Gucci stuff. As it is reported, HushPuppi has rented a house in Dubai, which totally corresponds to the status of the Yahoo boy. Its rent costs Ray as much as 60,000,000 Naira per year. This is a quite impressive amount of money.
Is Naira Marley a Yahoo boy?
We mentioned the Naira Marley Yahoo boy scandal earlier on, but do you know the details of this scandal that later led to the imprisonment of the artist? Earlier on this year, Naira Marley and his musical counterpart Zlatan were arrested for their alleged involvement in internet fraud and money laundering. This all began when the two artists released the song Naira Marley X Zlatan - Am I a Yahoo boy? that raised questions. Although Naira Marley and Zlatan were later released, there are still many rumours concerning their alleged involvement in the Yahoo boy business.
As you can see, this Lagos Big Boy has earned his name for a reason, although Nigerians still do not know how he makes his money and he does not seem to be ready to tell his fans the source of his wealth anytime soon. Nevertheless, there is yet to be someone who can take the title of the richest Yahoo boy in Lagos as Hushpuppi cannot be named a Yahoo boy simply because he is rich and has refused to tell anyone the source of his wealth.
