US rapper 50 Cent had his necklace stolen by a fan during a concert in Angola last week, it has emerged.

The incident, which took place as the rapper was onstage, was captured on video by a fan.

In the video, the music stops as the person grabs the necklace and climbs back into the crowd.

Responding to the incident on his website, 50 Cent said that security at the concert had been “limited” and that “fans were able to interact with the group onstage”.

“However one fan had a different motive, and bit off more than he can chew, as he attempted to run up on 50 and snatch his chain,” the message added.

Contrary to the fans video, the rapper claims that his own footage of the incident shows that he “pushed him off the stage and jumped into the crowd and then all hell broke loose."

50 Cent’s recent promotional trip in South Africa also saw him visit Nelson Mandela, who today confirmed the line up for 90th birthday party, which will take place in Hyde Park this summer.
