Rapper 50 Cent has been deeply touched by his trip to Africa with his G-Unit labelmates - because it has made him aware of how much African fans have had to spend to get to gigs.
The 'In Da Club' hitmaker, Tony Yayo and Lloyd Banks, among others, have been wowing fans at shows in South Africa and Tanzania, and the surly star has been going out of his way to thanks devotees for their support.
He tells MTV News: "It's a bigger sacrifice for them to actually attend these shows... Something is not happening in their lives for a month because they decided to spend money to buy tickets.
"It's, like, 'OK, we're not driving this month because we're going to see that show.' It's a big deal to them. It means something more to them than it means to attend a concert in the US."
The hip-hop star has also taken time to meet Nelson Mandela and learn about the history of anti-Apartheid during his trip.
