50 cent and mandela
    Rapper 50 cent is planning to feed 1 billion african kids in fight against hunger.He recently     launched an energy drink called  street king   which has already sold out in many stores in the US . The high number of pre-orders of the beverage enabled 50 Cent to send the United Nations a check towards hunger programs.
     According to the drink's website, 50 cent travelled  to Africa last year for the worldcup 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 Streetking Energy  and has also been tweeting alot about the plan.One of his tweets below
