“The Badagry Historical Resort development project will certainly enhance the quality of life for millions of people across Nigeria“
Badagry, Nigeria- Marlon Jackson, exactly one fifth of the Jackson 5, is throwing his piece of the gold record pie behind a billion dollar… SLAVERY THEME PARK…
The great port city of Badagry today boasts about 250,000 residents. Ever since slavery began to be supressed there in the 1840’s, the local economy has really been in the doldrums. Fish and Missionary schools just don’t compare to human traffic.
But all that is about to change, now that Marlon is jumping in.
Picture this- wake up and go for a round of 18 holes, relax by the pool for a bit while brunch is being prepared. Then in the afternoon, head off to the slave market where you can have your picture taken on the block. Afterwards you can take the booze cruise on the Amistad and hear some locals in reenactment dress pass along intimate, insider details on what life below deck was really like. On your way back to the hotel, you can haggle with locals for t-shirts and children. Golly Marlon…. i’m speechless.
The five jacksons should stick to making music and work on being better brother’s keepers- as in ” don’t be stupid bro, a slave amusement park, are you for real?!” or “Yes your nose is falling off. I’m your brother I’m not gonna lie to you.”
On a happier note, there was a Japanese knock-off band, contemporary to the Jackson 5, except they were called “Finger 5”
I wonder what the fingers are up to now? Plastic surgery, amusement parks, drug induced altercations, chimps…
