The arrest of popular Nigerian Instagram celebrity over alleged fraud has been one of the hottest topics in Nigeria over the past few weeks. Information reaching us now is that his legal representative, Gal Pissetzky of Pissetzky & Berliner has declared Hushpuppi to be "absolutely not guilty". In a recent interview with Forbes, Pissetzy talked about the charges leveled against his client.


According to Pissetzy, his client makes his money though real estate and promoting brands as an Instagram celebrity. He also went further to say that his client, Hushpuppi is "absolutely not guilty" of the charges leveled against him because he runs a legitimate business together with his legitimate Instagram account. 


In his words he said; 
“He’s an entrepreneur. He has real estate involvement, he’s an Instagram personality. He was promoting brands and that’s how he was very legitimately making his money.”


Some court documents that surfaced online earlier this week, showed that Hushpuppi retained Gal Pissetzky, a senior partner at Chicago law firm Pissetzky & Berliner, to help him solve the case and disengage him from all the charges leveled against him by the American authorities.
