Fiddy’s giving back again in a big way. The rapper/actor/businessman has already partnered with the World Food Program by donating portions of Street King’s revenues to help feed starving children in Africa and now, he’s taking things a step further.
“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 wrote in a statement.
His aim? Partner with entrepreneurs across Africa to not only introduce Street King to a vibrant market, but help others grow their businesses as well. And with Africa leading the way with six of the world’s fastest growing economies, 50’s aims are not only admirable, but they’re good business 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.” According to AllAfrica.com, 50 recently visited Kenya, where he spent time visiting schools across the nation.
“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.”
This is the type of positive press Fiddy needs to get more of. We hope this incentive sparks other businesses to step forward and help out on the one continent that needs our support the most.
