“I didn’t do any business with Hushpuppi but I know him, he’s just a friend, I won’t deny him. He was a very good friend of mine. He even looks up to me, calls me egbon, calls me bros, I don’t have any reason to do business with him. It’s more like when I’m in Dubai, he’s like ‘Ah Egbon you dey Dubai, where you dey I wan come see you.”

I warned Hushpuppi - Soso Soberekon

Also, during the interview, Soso revealed that he saw Hushpuppi’s arrest coming because he had warned him.

The socialite said he had told Hush that it was possible for him to get arrested.

In his words:

“I wasn’t surprised because I warned him. I’ve mentioned such to him, I told him like that can happen to him, that it’s possible that can happen to him, so I was not surprised. I pray he will scale through.”

Youths need to be patient

Soso also used the opportunity to advise the youths to be patient and not engage in fast ways to make money.

“I think everybody just needs to be patient because I find it heartbreaking when I see young people doing money rituals, apart from fraud, I find it heartbreaking when I see some people do some kind of crime because they are trying to go into the fast lane to make quick money. Sometimes when I see some young boys, even the attitude they present out there is not even encouraging. I just believe everybody should be patient”, he said.
