The legendary Michael Jackson still lives on and will continue to do so even after a century when we are all dead and rotten! The impact the entertainment god made in the music circles is immeasurable and many can attest to this sacred submission. What else can we say about a man who keeps accumulating more awards, cash and affluence even after his demise?!
Well, I was listening to his track, “Man In The Mirror” this dawn and realized the man MJ was just a prophet in his own kingdom. Reasons being that he stated emphatically in the track that in order for us to change the world we need to start by changing the “man” in the mirror. Who is this man in the mirror he was referring to? It is you and I! This is because when you look into the mirror, you see yourself and when I do I see myself! What better change can be effected except one which is started from our very own background? Have you realized that, sometimes, we are directly involved in whatever we criticise others for? Yes! I mean you and I!
Another reason why I eulogize MJ as a prophet we ignored is that, the talented definition of music always wore a designer nose mask and hand gloves everywhere he went until he was called to blessed memory in 2009. Did he see into the 2020 Novel Coronavirus 11 years ago? Who even thought wearing mask could be a life saving necessity now? Probably, people might have ‘captioned’ him to be someone who was antisocial back then when he had his masks and gloves on wherever he stepped. Is he not a prophet for doing what we are being forced to do today after a decade or so? How was he even able to have this in mind?!
Do you now agree with me that MJ was a prophet? Kindly share your thoughts with us.
