Michael will be remembered all around the world on August 29th, which would have been his 52nd Birthday. A major event will take place in Walter Sisulu Square in Kliptown, Soweto in South Africa when a special theme called ‘Dress Like Him, Dance Like Him and Win Like Him’ expects to attract many Michael look-alikes which will all compete in a bid to be the best Michael Jackson in terms of dress sense and dance skills.
Event organiser Terry Mokoena said of the event; “For those who don’t know about it, Life@40’nBeyond is a lifestyle club founded by House of Zodiac Promotions, which hosts a themed social gathering on the last weekend of each month. It brings its members together to socially network and participate in fun activities with like-minded people. Every session is filled with cultural and social activities. You might even bump into an old friend you haven’t seen in ages.”
In addition to the competition, Soweto-based dancers Cassius, Nini Thlotlhalemaje and Wendy Ramokgadi, creator of the popular diski dance, will be doing Michael’s famous dance moves and thrilling the crowds.
