How much do you really know about Michael Jackson? Michael Jackson: The Life of an Icon on Showmax answers this question by digging deeper into Jackson’s life, his younger years, the rise to fame and the controversies that came with it. Eight years after his death, we are yet to see an artist as intriguing and as legendary as Michael Jackson. The likes of Adele and Justin Bieber have been compared to him, and even christened the “next Jackson”. (I could see why Adele would make the cut but Bieber, really? C’mon, you guys.)

They could all try but there will only ever be one Michael Jackson. I mean, this guy continues to earn millions even from his grave, like the $75 million he’s already earned in 2017. Did I mention that he made $825 million last year? Let’s have a moment of silence for all of us who thought we were winning in life.

Here’s a little trivia quiz about the King of Pop to make you feel better: how much do you really know about him?
