'I did things my forefathers never did to become rich' - Hushpuppi in lengthy post shares his ghetto story

Flamboyant Malaysia-based Nigerian, Ray Hushpuppi in a motivational lengthy post, talked about the struggles he went through before finding wealth.

Hushpuppi who first started by advising every kid in the Ghetto to hustle up and chase their dreams, disclosed the certain moment a landlord ejected his family from their apartment, how he sold clothes in Lagos and how he left the country to chase his dream.
Read his full post below...

"Letter to the Ghetto Kid: 

As a man that I am today who developed from being one of you guys, who went through the same struggles you are presently going through, who had to run and jump hurdles where other kids just walk past the same situation in a better environment with better resources and much provisions, I know the society do not expect you to make it, the government don't care about your future, they toy and joke around making rules and laws that only affect you and benefit the rich. 

You lack everything it requires to become who you might have loved to be, do the things you would have loved to do or to live the life you may have seen on tv or the internet, which I know you even have limited access to because there's never power supply for such, which means you are deprived most of the things that can be learnt through tv and the internet in the first place which makes your dreams smaller, quicker to fade away but I want you to know that darkness you are, without the dark, the stars won't shine and so you can shine out if that darkness.  

You have been deprived so many right a child deserves and the world look down on you because you are nothing but a clot of blood miraculously turned a baby, and an unfortunate one at that. Good health, good foods or good education hasn't been in any way your chance to have.

 Looking at you disgusts not your brethren only but even strangers are not so impressed for your unhealthy appearance. Your strength; courage; and dreams are nothing but hallucination just because you were not supposed to dream big.  
I am sure nobody ever believed in whatever you say or do. You have been victimized by neighbors; friends; and even family members who were supposed to give you hope. 

This is my story, this is me and this is the hushpuppi you have been hearing about. The Ghetto kid in me is at Its peak and ready to explode and spread around the globe. I am you and you are me. I represent every under priviledge kid of the world and especially of Nigeria and of Lagos and of Bariga and of Oworonsoki -- Where a landlord had chased me and my family out of a rented room. I'll never forget the look on my mother's face trying to send me and my siblings to neighbors and relatives and the sadness in the eyes of my siblings.

 Now, you see I represent you? Trust me I know how it feels to not have parents come watch you in school play football or run races in ur school, I know how it feels to come out your apartment to take showers in a zinc sheet bathroom separated from the building.  

The society made me who I am today, I was never one of those who their parents couldn't afford a movie ticket to see a movie when Silver bird cinema came newly, I shared shoes, toiletries and underwears with my younger ones as well as mats and see me now at my early thirties, I am writing you a letter from one of the favourite places any human alive would have loved to be, billionaire or penniless.  

Nobody is listening to your cries; your lamentation; and your grievances are not felt a bit. If I had sat down complaining about the bad government; bad economy; bad friends, I will not be here today. I had a dream I was not supposed to cry, knowing nobody would listen, so I rose from the hood and decided to do the things my forefathers never did. I crossed the seas, walked through burning bushes, jumped over thorns and babbed wire.
A lot of people know me from when I used to use okada to be selling "akube" clothes to boys that was making cheddars in diff hotels up and down the mainland of Lagos.  

Look at yourself, do you like the way you are right now? Are you pushing beyond limits? Are you succumbing to the tune of the selfish 'Baba Alaye' in your neighborhood? Nobody will help you if you decide not to help yourself even hailing Hushpuppi 1,000 wouldn't help you either, be about you, get up, pick a struggle, leave your comfort zone, work hard at it, pray a lot and don't kiss ass, rich people are users and inconsiderate.  

Dear hustling hood kid, let no man hold you down. My advice for you is never to put your dreams in the hands of Ambode and Buhari, they don't know you, they don't believe in you cos there's millions of people like you on their neck, it's not much they can do if they can even do anything at all so don't expect you will ever win or make it by waiting for anyone."

Its amazing how our values have fallen...I know for a fact what he does for a living. Do you know how people get to commit suicide because they were duped by yahoo boys? What sort of motivation could possible come someone who hurts people for a living? If you really care about motivating people to be successful; why build your life on the tears and pains of others? Men can clap for you when you type out words but vengeance belongs to God.

It's simply not cool to show off your wealth no matter how you came by it. It's a sign of immaturity.

As I write this I'm sure I am worth more than you financially but I cherish my worth in the eyes of the lord and I will first seek the kingdom of heaven I suggest you do the same and stop worshipping earthly riches.

Hush is so so sensible and a good writer at that, your write-up earned you plenty of my respect.
Come to think of it, that your lrtter can be stretched out and made into a book with that lovely title "Letter to the Ghetto kid". It's gonna drop like it's hot at Amazon. I can write it for you and get a percentage of the sales, how about that? You see I am doubling my hustle, boy.

This is how we unknowingly push people towards suicide. Look at this person with questionable source of wealth that he spends in a totally unrestrained manner. Now he comes here to tell us how he was very poor, how he "hustled up" and how he is now swimming in money in his early thirties. No specifics like what he does for a living, the principles he followed to arrive at wealth, no how to. And Nigerians are there shouting "wow", "inspiring", etc. Next thing a poor chap who has struggled to break out of Poverty but still can't pay rent at 38 will start thinking of third mainland bridge. Mtchew! Me, I'm tired of all these supposed self made super heroes who can't really show anyone the way. Inspiring my foot!

he still didnt say what he does for a living. if legitimate, he'd have mentioned that. its either drug or blood moni.

O-Ice said...

Suffering people long for encouragement as desert travellers long for water. Major reason Nigerians can't tell the difference between encouraging and inspiring. Every grass to grace story is inspiring to us, no matter how implausible or vague. Simple reason - it gives us hope. It doesn't matter that it does not show us how to get out of our situation. This is how end time prosperity preachers have become rich off Nigerians - selling hope. Hush whatever his name is has not inspired anybody, he has only given us some hope for tomorrow. And hope alone doesn't change any situation.

Everybody here is commenting in a way that shows that they have been following the boy on Twitter and Instagram. The only times I have read about him are the one or two posts Linda has made about him flaunting at IG.
I don't really have plenty time to watch people on IG but if you guys are condemning him because of the things you have seen him flaunt, I can only say that he be given a benefit of the doubt. The only ways of making money that I am against are cheating,hurting, killing and maiming others for money. If Hush didn't do those then I am very happy for him, if he did them then all of you judging and condemning him have good points.
As none has proved things here,we can as well let his motivating write-up add strength to our hustling energy as in inspire us to be better survivors.Thanks.

Nice one bro... Appreciate him irrespective of your sentiment.. You wouldn't have helped him out if he had come to you door step for an assistance when he was poor , now he has gone through hell to become whom he is today yet you wouldn't appreciate his struggle but sit in your little room condemning him .. who are you to condemn people or has a right to know his source of income.
No one is good-except God alone.

Blacks are idiot everywhere just like the former boxer floyd mayweather pushing monies on trolley in this age of Internet banking. No matter how the monies is gotten a wise man will think of not only how to multiply the monies but also how to sustain it. Going into big investment will make u know that you have not enough monies.
Telling street to dream big an double their hustle is not motivation. Motivation is telling street how u started, things u did, how u did it, what ur still doing tobe where u are now. All motivational books i have read has it.

My brother wen don be big man, it is easy to write a story about moving from rags to riches. We all have our stories to tell but what DO YOU DO FOR A LIVING? We can all see what people like Dangote and other rich people are doing, even Davido sings for a living but what about you? If you want to encourage people with your life story, then tell them what you did to be where you are today, if not SHUT UP.

People like you hail politians who robbed us and make many poor people life miserable.. Our forefathers sold us to the white for slavery and they seize our heritage and give us mirror.. Visit some museum abroad you will understand a little we are our own problems ..whenever a Nigerian see his fellow brother succeeding the first thing that comes to his mind is he did blood money or yahoo plus.. Everybody knows how he/she makes money...He that is without sin among you, let him cast the first stone at her.”

The intention to encourage others is well and good, but abeg don't think we are stupid to believe that your success is from hard work and legitimate business dealings. We know better. So instead back up your advise by creating wealth for the people you advice and also hire an English tutor to help with your grammar.
