Michael Jacksons promoter in Kenya, given new name in Nyeri
The promoter of the late American king of pop, Michael Jackson, is in Kenya.
Qadree El-Amin jetted into the country on October 1st and according to Mwakilishi, headed to Nyeri in search of “divine intervention.”
The news outlet added that El-Amin was received warmly by locals and inducted into the Kikuyu community.
El-Amin was given a Kikuyu name, Mungai, while his associate who accompanied him in the trip, US Hip Hop producer Prince Michael was christened Muchiri.
Speaking in Kimahuri village, Kieni, El-Amin was quoted saying that he was a changed man, "Now that I have visited the shrine, and spoke to God, I will head back to the U.S. and refrain from causing any trouble.”
The two reportedly laid wreaths at the grave of Elijah Kamitha Kiambati - a man famed for reviving the Mount Kenya Prayer Walk in 1935.
In March 2017, the promoter lost a suit where he was seeking a stake in the late Michael Jackson's wealth.
In the initial lawsuit, former Jackson associates including Qadree El-Amin had claimed that the singer had promised them a 15-percent stake in his company.
