Michael – New Ventures?
MANAMA: Michael Jackson is currently in talks with a Bahrain-based company over a string of possible entertainment projects in the Gulf, from theme parks to music academies according to The Gulf Daily News.
AAJ Holdings & Michael Jackson are discussing various ideas to help bolster the music and entertainment sector in the Gulf, the parties announced yesterday.
Mr. Jackson would be in the role of consultant, offering advice on how to revitalize the music and entertainement sector in The Gulf. Michael Jackson has been in the entertainment industry well over 35 years and has vast holdings, such as MiJac Publishing and the heavily sought after 50% share of the Sony/ATV publishing house.
"Stagnant" properties could be revived through entertainment projects, says AAJ Holdings owner and founder Ahmed Abubaker Janahi.
His group has interests in companies around the world and concentrates on projects involving city and urban developments.
AAJ Holdings was instrumental in the creation of the Bahrain Financial Harbour in Bahrain and the Blue City in Oman.
