As part of the on-going 5th Kanilai International Cultural Festival, this is the first of its kind since Michael Jackson’s sudden death.

Jermaine Jackson, who seems to have developed a special relationship with the Gambian leader Yahya Jammeh, has jetted into Banjul from the United States with some 60 family members, members of his band as well as staff and fans. He promises to devote the proceeds from the performance to the many charitable bodies President Jammeh has created for women’s emancipation and girl’s education as well as for child welfare.

The concert is expected to be graced by the presence of President Jammeh, cabinet ministers, diplomats, other distinguished guests as well as thousands of adoring fans comprising mainly of young people, for many of whom this is a once in a life time occasion not to be missed.

Since early on Saturday morning, a swelling number of young fans have been finding their way to the stadium in Bakau.
