“Not impressed by 50 Cents planned movie on Hushpuppi. It will further tank Nigeria’s already battered image. Many positive things come out of Nigeria, like Dr. Oluyinka Olutoye, the first man to successfully perform surgery on an unborn baby outside its mother’s womb, and restore it back in its mums womb after the procedure.
Do a movie about fraud, then he should consider doing one on Bernie Madoff, an American whoo stole $50 billion, thereby pulling off the biggest heist ever on Earth.”
