American Rapper 50Cent set to feed 1 Billion African Children
According to the drink's website, 50 cent travelled to Africa last year for the world cup and his eyes were opened to rampant poverty and hunger across the continent. He said he is in talks with Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Usher and Drake about the initiative in order to achieve his aim. The website shows 2.5 Million kids have been fed already. The rapper said about his fundraising goals,
“I’m really serious about it (hunger relief). So far I’ve been able to feed 2.5 million (kids), but I wanna feed a billion. When I said I’d do it in five years, I was being really conservative. I’ll do it a lot faster I said five years because that’s (the norm) when I create a business plan, but I think I can do it in half that time.”
50 cent has been releasing songs titled Street king Energy and has also been tweeting alot about the plan.
