The last time 50 Cent appeared live on an obscure European TV show he was caught doing something highly suspicious in his dressing room.
There's nothing illicit, however, about his latest appearance, as a contestant on the Turkish version of 'Deal Or No Deal' ('Varmısın Yokmusun').
The reason for his unlikely cameo is unclear. 'Fiddy' has never toured Turkey, or even sold many records there. Still, the audience seem to love him. They're certainly more receptive than the crowd at Reading 2004, one of whom memorably hurled a deckchair onstage during 'In Da Club'.
Next week: Lil Wayne on 'Countdown'.
