My earliest memory of Micheal Jackson was a lifesize cardboard cutout of him outside KFC. It was probably a Pepsi ad, I cannot really remember as I was only 4 years old. My parents were walking along and I stopped on seeing this cardboard cutout. I had no idea who this person was but insisted that my parents take a photo of me with MJ. Problem was, they didn’t have a camera. But I was not going to be turned down. Oh, no! I just stood in front of that cardboard cutout and waited. Waited until they went to the nearest camera shop (which luckily was just a couple of steps away), bought the cheapest disposable camera and snapped a shot. Then, I was happy. And calmly walked away. When I was around 7 (I think), I discovered who that person in the ad was. It was at that moment that I became a major fan of MJ’s music. Despite what people say about him, you cannot deny that he was the King of Pop.
One of my favourite MJ moments:
And an eternal moonwalk. How cool!
