Dabota Lawson, mother of one and former Miss Nigeria UK beauty queen, has sparked rumour she is dating nouveau riche Instagram ‘rich kid’, Hushpuppi.
Instagram gossip site, Instablog9ja reported the duo of Lawson and grass-to-grace Hushpuppi are currently holed up at the Palazzo Versace Hotel, Dubai.
The site had pieced together photos of Lawson and Hushpuppi, showing a similarity in the image backgrounds and leading readers to believe the alleged lovebirds are nested at the prestigious hotel. Lawson captioned one of the photos: “Love, Live, Laughter” which her Instagram fans took plainly to mean she had found love again.
Lawson, a beauty product entrepreneur, came into the spotlight through her crowning as Miss Nigeria UK queen in 2017.
She would later attract negative attention through her separation from billionaire husband, Sunny Aku.
Many at the time gossiped the fair-hued Lawson, who doubled her ex-husband in height, married the latter for his money. Lawson herself once said the billionaire told friends she would be strapped for cash and compelled to return to him.
Unlike Lawson, nothing is known of Hushpuppi’s background, but the rumour mill says he is an internet scam artist.
Hushpuppi – the Bariga-to-Dubai Instagram rich kid – had at different times taken dig at Nigerian celebrity singers such as KCEE, Timaya, Phyno, Olamide, Timaya, MI and Ice Prince. The celebs dismissed his rants as attention-seeking. Hushpuppi’s attempt to make a live video recently left many of his fans horrified at his cruelty to English language.
