Rap star Cardi B has given her husband R31 million as a birthday gift.

The 29-year-old rap star - who is one of the world's best-selling musicians - has revealed via social media that she's presented the Migos rapper with a cheque for an eye-watering sum of money in celebration of his 30th birthday.

Cardi posted a photo of Offset with his cheque on her Instagram Story and she captioned the image: "Happy birthday!!! He literally got it all. (sic)"

In a video clip, Offset is seen smiling and dancing with his cheque.

Cardi - who married the rap star in 2017 - revealed she decided to part with the money because she already has "a lot of business ventures" in the works for 2022.

However, it was recently revealed that Cardi's line of dolls won't be released due to Covid-related manufacturing and shipping delays.

The “WAP” hitmaker previously announced plans to release a series of Cardi-inspired dolls - but the products now won't be released because of delays and concerns about the product's quality.

Cardi and Real Women Are - a fashion doll brand - joined forces earlier this year to created a limited edition doll of the rapper.

They started taking pre-orders in March, but the plan was hit by manufacturing and shipping delays, while Cardi was also said to be unhappy with the quality of the design.

The rapper therefore decided to scrap the idea and instructed the manufacturer to issue refunds to her fans.

Cardi actually announced the product's launch on social media earlier this year, when she invited fans to order their dolls online.

She wrote on Instagram at the time: "BARDI GANG!! I’m dropping my own doll TODAY! Inspired by me. Created by me. Designed by me. Thank you @officialrealwomenare This means sooo much.
