ADNAN SAMI is teaming up with Jermaine Jackson (of Jackson 5 fame, brother of MICHAEL JACKSON) on a record that will serve as a tribute to Mumbai, which is Adnan’s current home.

Upon Jermaine’s arrival at Adnan’s house, his son Azaan fell into a dilemma. According to Adnan, “My son had a problem when Jermaine came home. He has two dogs named after Elvis Presley and MJ (short for Michael Jackson). ‘How can we call ‘MJ’ when Jermaine uncle is around?’ I tried to convince him that the name was a tribute to MJ. But my son refused to call out our canine’s name while Jermaine was around,” Adnan said.

Jermaine finally arrived in Mumbai on Friday with his wife Halima but the story of their arrival wasn’t publicized too much.

“It’s been an exhausting but amazing time since Jermaine arrived. I didn’t make any announcements about Jermaine’s arrival because I didn’t want to sound premature in my excitement. Jermaine had visa issues and his arrival in Mumbai was uncertain till the last minute,” said Adnan Sami, while speaking with the media.

Describing the upcoming record, Adnan further revealed, “It will be part of an album we’ve been working on for two years – long before Michael Jackson’s sudden death. Jermaine loves India and Mumbai. I could’ve easily joined him in Los Angeles to record the song. But Jermaine insisted on coming down.”

Working with Jermaine Jackson isn’t the only thing Adnan is doing.

“After the recording is over, we’re going to Chowpatty and all the other hot spots of Mumbai. Jermaine loves Indian food.”

A visit to the Taj Mahal is also on the cards. “We’ll visit the Taj and Fatehpur Sikri where, as you know, Tansen once sang.

“I’d have loved him to stay in my house. But I thought a hotel would be more comfortable for Jermaine and Halima. I’m bowled over by his humility and his hunger to learn and know about Indian culture. His down-to-earth nature reminds me of Mr Amitabh Bachchan,” said Adnan.

The Jermaine-Adnan album will be released in India by T-Series and internationally by Jermaine’s record label.
