MJF’s home base for the last 5 years is his beautiful recreation of Michael Jackson’s famous Neverland Valley Ranch.
Fans from around the world come to gather there to see his exquisitely detailed sim and enjoy MJ music in stream. He also recreated the sets of the most beloved and well known Michael Jackson videos on the MJJ Kingdom sim. Those sets are now the centerpieces of individual song- themed events that tour across SL.
But beyond this amazing work he has built with precious prims, he is beloved first and foremost for his kindness and loving demeanor. He has amassed a group of fiercely devoted supporters in SL that have come together to form a tight-knit community of MJ fans. As MJF has stated, “The importance I give to the man I represent is connected to his fans. I am here for them. I create and tribute him, for them. They are the reason why I don’t give up.”
