50 Cent visits victims of famine

50 Cent has teamed up with the World Food Programme to help famine victims in Somalia and Kenya.

The Baby By Me rapper flew to Dolo, Somalia, this week and went on to visit Kenya so he could see first-hand the effects of hunger.

Fiddy - whose real name is Curtis Jackson - has committed to provide a billion meals for the hungry, and he has said he will donate 10 cents from every sale of Street King, an energy drink he is promoting, to the programme.

Last week the UN declared an end to Somalia's six month famine, though it said tens of thousands of people still need food aid to survive.

The British government estimates that between 50,000 and 100,000 people died as a result of the famine.
