KARACHI: B Howard, the alleged biological son of late King of Pop Michael Jackson, was in Pakistan to shoot a music video in December last year. In a recent development, Howard is set to take Karachi by storm in a live concert to be held at Port Grand on April 13, 2019, stated a press release.

As a top charted artist and multi-platinum producer for AKon, Ne-Yo, Vanessa Hudgens and Jason Derulo among others, Howard has been making headlines in Hollywood ever since his record producing days in 2003. He embarked on his solo career after his song Ke Nako became a part of the 2010 Official FIFA World Cup album.


With his mesmerising voice and many other physical characteristics bearing similarities to Jackson, Howard garnered huge media attention after being spotted for his uncanny resemblance to the late artist. With DNA tests taken by the artist himself, it became public knowledge that he is indeed the lovechild of Jackson and his former girlfriend Miki.

A couple of days after Howard went on record with his statements regarding his parentage, Akon talked about the same. “I’ve known B for such a long time and there’s always been this thing about how similar his mannerisms are and how close he resembles Michael Jackson,” he said. “From the speaking to everything, there was always that question there.”


When asked in interviews, Howard always politely refers to Jackson as family. In his earlier visit to Pakistan in December, he explored and enjoyed the traditional tastes and sights Karachi. When asked about his experience at his official press conference at the time, he remarked on the welcoming nature of Karachiites as well as how much fun he had while meeting his fans and soaking in Pakistani culture.

He explained that despite people telling him that Pakistan is not safe, he felt nothing but hospitality and love. Howard is set to launch the music video of his song Lose Control, which he shot in Karachi with comedian Ali Gul Pir, during his previous visit. “There’s a lot more happening than just the music video.

Pakistanis are in for a big surprise,” a source close to Howard previously told The Express Tribune. His video will be showing the beautiful side of Karachi and bringing the positive image of Pakistan to global attention. With Howard’s live concert at Port Grand just around the corner, be sure to grab the concert tickets online or from the venue itself.
