Michael Jackson's 3 Children Make Joint Appearance | Fab.ng

In a rare public appearance, all three of the late Michael Jackson’s children joined forces for a special occasion. Prince, Paris, and Bigi Jackson arrived together in London on March 27th to celebrate the opening night of “MJ: The Musical” at the Prince Edward Theatre.

The appearance also sparked excitement among fans who were thrilled to see the Jackson siblings together in public. Social media buzzed with photos and messages expressing joy at this rare family gathering.

Before the show, Prince, Paris, and Bigi Jackson turned heads on the red carpet. Prince Jackson, beaming with delight, sported a classic black suit with a burgundy shirt and a sharp black tie. In a stunning contrast, Paris Jackson opted for a flowing rust-colored gown. The dress featured a fitted bodice that accentuated her figure, while the loose, off-the-shoulder sleeves added some elegance. Rounding out the trio, Bigi Jackson kept it simple yet sophisticated in a black suit with a crisp white button-up shirt.

Michael Jackson’s children Prince, Paris, and Bigi, don’t often appear together in public. This past summer, Paris and Prince walked the red carpet at two events: the Tony Awards in New York and the Harold and Carole Pump Foundation Gala in Beverly Hills.

Paris and Prince share the same biological mother, Debbie Rowe, who was married to Michael Jackson. Bigi, on the other hand, was born via surrogate mother.

Michael Jackson’s nephew, Jaafar Jackson, bears a striking resemblance to his late uncle and will be portraying him in the upcoming film titled “Michael.”

News of the film broke in February when Jaafar’s first-look photo was released. Prince Jackson even shared the photo on social media, expressing his family’s excitement about the project.

This reunion not only celebrates the opening of a major theatrical production but also signifies a moment of family unity and shared pride in Michael Jackson’s enduring legacy.

Why Fela Kuti Married 27 Women In One Day – Seun Kuti

Why Fela Kuti Married 27 Women In One Day | Fab.ng

Seun Kuti, the son of the late Afrobeats pioneer Fela Anikulapo Kuti, has shared the reasons behind his father’s decision to marry 27 women. These women included his backup singers and dancers, all in one day.

In 1978, Fela Anikulapo Kuti made headlines worldwide by marrying 27 women in a single day. The act was seen as extremely bold and unconventional. This group marriage was not just a spectacle but had deeper motivations behind it.

Seun Kuti explained that Fela’s female dancers and band members were frequently subjected to harsh media scrutiny and were often labelled as prostitutes. This negative portrayal deeply concerned Fela, who has always challenged societal norms and media propaganda. To counter these damaging accusations and preserve the honour and dignity of these women, Fela decided to marry all 27 of them at once.

Seun elaborated that this act was Fela’s way of showing solidarity with his band members and dancers.

It affirmed their importance and value in his life and work. By marrying them, Fela aimed to protect them from societal stigma and ensure they were respected.

In a recent interview on the “Fresh Off The Boat” podcast via Skype, Seun shared these insights. He highlighted his father’s commitment to challenging societal norms and defending the people close to him. This act of marrying 27 women was another example of Fela’s rebellious spirit and desire to stand up against injustice and societal prejudice.

“My father was under immense media propaganda. He was very scrutinised. And most of it were directed to the women that were in his life—his female backup singers, dancers.”

“They all lived together with my dad, but the media started calling them prostitutes. So my dad, in order to preserve their honour and dignity, asked them if they would choose to be his brides, so nobody would call them names anymore, and they all agreed. That was how the marriage happened.”

When asked about dream collaborators, Tiwa Savage joked that a hefty paycheck might make an unappealing kissing scene more bearable, but her ideal scenario would involve a co-star she finds attractive. This lighthearted condition didn’t prevent her from discussing her acting future. Savage went on to reveal that she hadn’t yet thought of any specific actors she’d love to work with, leaving the door open for future collaborations.

UK-Born Actor, Wale Ojo Says The Japa Mentality Of Nigerians Is Embarrassing

Wale Ojo says japa mentality of Nigerians is embarrassing | fab.ng

Actor Wale Ojo is concerned by the trend of Nigerians, like skilled doctors, leaving the country for better prospects abroad. Ojo himself spent a significant amount of time living outside Nigeria, but his love for his homeland never wavered.

His vision is for a future where Nigerians won’t feel pressured to emigrate in search of a better life. He believes a strong and prosperous Nigeria can provide its citizens with fulfilling careers and a sense of belonging. This will keep them from feeling the need to “japa,” a slang term for leaving the country.

“I have a lot of aspirations. Over the years it would have been extremely easy for me not to come to Nigeria at all. I could easily have stayed in the United States, or United Kingdom, or Germany or even Russia. And I know I would have been okay doing what I do there. But I love Nigeria, and I will always love Nigeria no matter what,” he said.

Wale Ojo strongly disapproves of the “japa” trend. He believes it’s a shame that so many Nigerians feel they have to leave their home country to succeed.

“And I have a lot of visions for Nigeria. And that vision is one that encompasses a country where everybody doesn’t want to ‘japa’. The ‘japa’ mentality I think is embarrassing. I think it’s unfortunate, you know where doctors think they go and do their stuff elsewhere and whereas when I go to the United States or go anywhere, Nigerians are applauded for their ingenuity,” the actor explained.

Wale Ojo acknowledges that Nigeria has its problems, but that doesn’t discourage him. Instead, he emphasises that he wants to be part of the solution. He wants to contribute to making his dream of a better Nigeria a reality.

“When you will come home there are many problems, I want to be a part of the solution; I don’t want to be talking about the problem I want to be a part of the solution. I put a lot of things in place to bear the solution if the government wants to engage with the creative industry they need to come and talk to people like us because we have a vision for the country; we don’t do ‘follow-follow.”
