"Remember The Time" when MJ was crowned 'King Sani!'

Updated: Mar 28, 2022

Happy Black HIStory Month!


On February 12th, 1992, during his goodwill trip to Africa, Michael's first stop was in Gabon, where he was greeted warmly by more than 100,000 people—some carrying signs that read, "Welcome Home Michael."


While on his journey in the Ivory Coast, Michael was crowned "King Sani" by the tribal chief, Nana Amon N'Djafolk IV, King of Krindjabo. Michael thanked the dignitaries in French and English, signed official documents formalizing his kingship, and sat on a golden throne while presiding over ceremonial dances performed in his honor.


President Omar Bongo presented Michael with the 'National Honor Of Merit Award' on behalf of the country of Gabon at the Ambassador's Hall in the Presidential Palace in Libreville. Gabon said that “the return of Michael Jackson to Africa fits into the tradition of the abolition of time and the integration of space. His music made us feel that he’s never really been away”.

He was crowned King 🤴...can you imagine. I wonder if he researched his lineage and was from there 🤔. No one will ever surpass or match him in any form or fashion. He was truly loved ❤ by Everyone around the world. We were lucky that he lived during our lifetime. Thank you Michael.

You know, that's a great question! I don't recall any news of MJ researching his lineage to africa (though I wouldn't be suprised if Michael had. He was all about black HIStory and knowing his HIstory). However, his mother, Katherine Jackson, Michael's mother is said to have ancestry tracing to "Blackfoot Native American" and perhaps even some "Chinese" but that's so far a rumor. And in Joe Jackson's 2004 book, the Jacksons, he's stated that his great-grandfather was of the "Choctaw Indian" tribe. But on a personal note, I know quite a few Black Americans with Native American Heritage including myself. And yep! Michael was truly loved by all around the globe! To be crowned a King is a great…
