STATEMENT FROM THE JACKSON FAMILY, 28 January 2019
"Michael Jackson is our brother and son. We are furious that the media, who without a shred of proof or single piece of physical evidence, chose to believe the word of two admitted liars over the word of hundreds of families and friends around the world who spent time with Michael, many at Neverland, and experienced his legendary kindness and global generosity. We are proud of what Michael Jackson stands for.
People have always loved to go after Michael. He was an easy target because he was unique. But Michael was subjected to a thorough investigation which included a surprise raid of Neverland and other properties as well as a jury trial where Michael was found to be COMPLETELY INNOCENT. There has never been one piece of proof of anything. Yet the media is eager to believe these lies.
Michael always turned the other cheek, and we have always turned the other cheek when people have gone after members of our family – that is the Jackson way. But we can’t just stand by while this public lynching goes on, and the vulture tweeters and others who never met Michael go after him. Michael is not here to defend himself, otherwise these allegations would not have been made.
The creators of this film were not interested in the truth. They never interviewed a single solitary soul who knew Michael except the two perjurers and their families. That is not journalism, and it’s not fair, yet the media are perpetuating these stories.
But the truth is on our side. Go do your research about these opportunists. The facts don’t lie, people do. Michael Jackson was and always will be 100% innocent of these false allegations."

From EURweb.com, by Jerome Maida:
As everyone knows, Michael Jackson was a pioneer in breaking and pushing boundaries in the music industry, from being the first black artist featured regularly on MTV to using groundbreaking technology in his music videos. Now his nephew, Jaafar Jackson – son of Michael’s brother, Jermaine – is following in his famous uncle’s footsteps.
At “The Reveal” at the Dolby theater in Los Angeles of the new technology NASGO is betting it becomes the norm eventually, Jafaar Jackson performed in support of his new album, which he has earlier announced at the United Nations would be released in the new format called “tokenization.” He had made the announcement about the groundbreaking way he will release his album earlier at both the United Nations and then at the New York Stock Exchange.
Like his famous family, Jaafar Jackson wanted to make it clear he is releasing his album using this new technology to both be more accessible to fans and to be better able to support social causes.
“One of the biggest things (is) I want to bring awareness about things that are going on around the world through my music,” said Jafaar to EURweb in an exclusive interview.. “Using this technology and my music together, it’s definitely going to make me very happy.”
Jafaar feels the new blockchain/tokenization technology helps both artists and fans.
Jermaine Jackson's son Jaafar Jackson is creating history and is poised to revolutionize the music recording industry with the help of tokenized solutions from NASGO; a company helping businesses, sports influencers, musicians and many others to tokenize their businesses with features for point of sale, closer communication for customers, social media, tokenized loyalty programs, and as a means of supporting humanitarian causes.
In a move that will soon become pervasive for many performing artists, NASGO will assist in the creation of uniquely-branded digital tokens for use in rewarding followers and customers with branded merchandise, priority seating and early release of upcoming materials. Jaafar will also use the technology to support and advance social causes, and to continue the social impact legacy begun by Michael Jackson and currently championed by members of the Jackson family including father Jermaine.
Jaafar launched his Jusic token on the NASGO blockchain with an exclusive debut performance of four tracks with 1500 or Nothin' at the Hollywood Dolby Theatre on 27 October 2018! The movers and shakers behind Nasgo Nation, Eric Tippetts and Steve Chiang arranged a must-be and must-see event titled "The Reveal" to teach, show and demonstrate how Blockchain Technology is the next wave of business, entertainment, art and so much more!
Jaafar Jackson is making history by tokenizing his musical releases. Other artists are moving this direction as well, which could turn the music recording industry on its head.
NASGO has announced that they are extremely excited about Jermaine Jackson's son Jaafar Jackson choosing NASGO as the blockchain to support the tokenization of his upcoming debut album connecting him closer to his fans. Jaafar is going to be a superstar and his music and his mission is to provide social impact in the world. Watch Jaafar Jackson and Eric Tippetts, co-founder of NASGO, at the New York Stock Exchange (6 September 2018) discuss how they're 'tokenizing' Jaafar's album using blockchain technology.

On August 7th, on their day off ahead of their concert at Port Adriano in Mallorca, The Jacksons (Jackie, Tito, Jermaine and Marlon) took the time to visit The Way Youth Zone where they met with kids at the performing arts studio who also danced to Tito Jackson's hit single "Get It Baby". The Way Youth Zone in Wolverhampton is a purpose built facility for young people aged 8–19 (and up to 25 for those with disabilities). The legends left starstruck youngsters speechless during a show-stopping visit to the city. Hysteria swept across The Way Youth Zone when the superstars strolled into the Wolverhampton hub with their families in tow. Crowds of delighted youngsters were left in awe of the icons, swarming the quartet for selfie snaps and autographs yesterday. The brothers were treated to a special tour of the venue which supports youngsters in the heart of the city.

Thank you for respecting our privacy during this time,” the family said in a statement.
