By David Stephen. One time Forbes highest grossing hip hop artist, 50 Cent, is seeking the partnership of businesses across Africa for sales and distribution of his energy drink, Street King.  He is seeking partners to get the drink across the continent in various countries. He submitted in a statement that: “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.” He continues by saying: “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. 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.” 50 Cent was featured on CNN, about a year ago, and he spoke about this drink and his commitment to having proceeds go to charity. 50 Cent has been into commercialization, after his hit song “In da club”. He recently launched headphone devices for sale, and had a mega buck deal with Coca-cola.  His drink will be competing with several energy drinks that already have footing in countries around Africa. 50’s fame will surely boost sales, but likability of the drink and marketing matters as well.
