Jaafar is Jermaine Jackson’s son. In the image, he recreates a moment from Jackson’s 1992-1993 Dangerous Tour.

“With Jaafar, every look, every note, every dance move is Michael. He embodies Michael in a way that no other actor could,” stated producer Graham King in a news release.

Director Antoine Fuqua agreed, stating “It’s Jaafar who embodies Michael. It goes beyond the physical resemblance. It’s Michael’s spirit that comes through in a magical way. You have to experience it to believe it.”

Jaafar has also shared a couple photos on his own Instagram.
