26-year-old musician Jafar Jackson, who is the nephew of the legendary musician Michael Jackson, will play the role of the king of pop music in the film. This is reported by Deadline.
Jafar is the son of Michael’s older brother, Jermaine Jackson, who, like the future King of Pop, was a member of the family group, the Jackson 5.
The young man is 26 years old and has been studying music and dancing since he was a teenager. In the summer of 2019, he released his debut single “Got Me Singing”.
“I am honored to bring the story of my Uncle Michael to life. To all fans around the world: see you soon,” Jafar wrote on his Instagram.
