Ugandans were recently in a state of confusion after Wang Jackson, a Michael Jackson look alike arrived in the country.
Wang Jackson, his stage name, reportedly came to Uganda to teach school-going kids Chinese language. Wang’s real name is actually Wang Jie.
His astonishing resemblance to the late pop star mystified not just the children that he met but also adults, including teachers and soldiers.
Wang loves Michael Jackson and has been imitating him since 2011, when he performed Billie Jean at a Michael Jackson Memorial concert at Zadeh Stadium, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
Wang is in Uganda! He is visiting schools that teach Chinese, the main language spoken in China. He had his first visit at Luyanza College School in Bweyogerere, Wakiso District today, and caused hysteria in the school.
There have been quite a number of Michael Jackson’s look alike over the decades. China’s Wang Jackson is just one of the them.
