50 Cent shows off his new home ... in Africa

50 CENT is moving to Africa.

The 'Candy Shop' hitmaker - who is currently embroiled in bankruptcy proceedings - has vowed to have the "craziest housewarming party" ever once work on constructing his new abode is completed.

Sharing a video of the two-storey property's exterior, he wrote on Instagram: "My crib is almost finished in AFRICA. I'm gonna have the craziest House warming party ever. I'll explain later. I got a good life Man (sic)"

The video shows the brown and white property, which is surrounded by tropical trees, being attended to by construction workers before the footage pans across to show a swimming pool and vast patio area.

It is unclear where the house is situated.

50's claim comes after it emerged his is looking to rent out his 52-room Connecticut home, which boasts 21 bedrooms, nine kitchens and even a casino.

While it isn't clear how much he is looking to make from renting out the property, but he is currently spending $72,000 a month just on maintenance on the place.

50 - whose real name is Curtis Jackson - isn't the first resident of the property to hit financial difficulties, as two previous owners, former boxer Mike Tyson and a Lithuanian businessman, also went bankrupt while living there.

In his bankruptcy filings, it emerged the rapper-and-actor has expenses of a staggering $108,000 a month, including $1,000 on grooming, $3,000 on his wardrobe, $9,000 on security and $5,000 on gardening.

Despite a recent court testimony in a case brought against him by Lastonia Leviston - whose sex tape 50 allegedly posted online - in which the 40-year-old star denied owning a multitude of luxury vehicles and living a lavish lifestyle, the filings also state he owns seven cars, including a Rolls Royce and three Chevy Suburbans.

The 'Power' actor also pays $14,6000 a month in support for his sons Marquise, 17, and two-year-old Sire, and his grandfather.
