50 Cent to Provide Opportunities for Africa’s Entrepreneurs

Rapper 50 Cent isn’t just busy with his new boxing thing; he’s also busy doing good things. After joining forces with Street King, an energy drink company, the rapper also linked arms with the World Food Program to donate a portion of Street King’s revenues to help feed starving children in Africa.

His statement below:

 “Giving back to hungry children with every shot we sell is only part of the story. I’ve been fortunate enough to travel across Africa, and one thing I’ve learned is that it is filled with vibrant, young entrepreneurs who are eager to cultivate a sustainable business sector that will fuel growth for their future. That’s why I’m giving African entrepreneurs the chance to bring SK to their country.”

50 Cent wants to partner up with Africa’s entrepreneurs to introduce Street King to a vibrant market and to help others grow their businesses as well.

“I’ve had so much interest coming from Africa since I’ve launched SK. That’s why I’m opening up submissions to entrepreneurs across the continent to become distribution partners. Everyone thought that we would expand immediately to Europe or South America. But if you know SK, you know the vision has always been to support my roots in Africa.”

Well, good luck on the new venture!
