TNZ posted an article on their site from Vibe magazine. Here is a few quotes....
"Quite simply, Michael Jackson refused to lose. I'm going to get them, - the embattled singer told long time friend and musical collaborator Teddy Riley in late 2008 of his plans for a spectacular return.I'm going to shock the world, just watch."
Akon says: ""Everything in Mike's life was choreographed. So he's probably on some island right now just relaxing waiting for the time to come back. I can deal with his death knowing that one day I'm going to be somewhere going to the market and and I might see him with that same disguise that he had on in Vegas. I would just say to him, "Don't worry Michael, I won't tell nobody."
Akon is a good friend of Michael's. I think he is helping him out , or he believes in the hoax like we do.
