Reacting in the comment section of the post on Thursday, Ini Edo stated that casting a Nigerian actor for the role would be best.

“You’re welcome, Nigerian actors are your best bet,” the actress wrote.

Fellow actress Uche Jombo had earlier urged the Hollywood star to cast a Nigerian actor for the role.

She said, “Please give a Nigerian actor the opportunity to play this character.”

NenyKo recalls that Hushpuppi was recently sentenced by a US court to 11 years and three months in prison for online fraud running into millions of dollars. He is also to restitute $1.7 million to two persons.

Majority of Hushpuppi’s victims were Americans. He has been in custody since his arrest in Dubai in 2020.

The Nigerian had a penchant for flaunting lavish lifestyle on Instagram which won him a lot of followers on the photo-sharing app.
