50 Cent is the latest artist to make a donation to charity after it was revealed he performed at an event linked to Libyan leader Muammar el-Qaddafi.
A statement released on Wednesday said the rapper, who has his own G-Unity foundation, will be making a donation to Unicef to help with its relief efforts in Libya.
“In light of the ongoing events in Libya, 50 Cent will be making a donation to Unicef,’’ a representative for the rap star said.
50 Cent performed at a private event during the 2005 Venice Film Festival that was later linked to the Qaddafi clan. The autocrat is battling rebels in Libya who are revolting against his rule and faces an investigation for possible war crimes.
Last week, Beyonce, Usher, Mariah Carey and Nelly Furtado announced charity donations in the wake of their performing for the Qaddafis.
