The news outlet added that El-Amin was received warmly by locals and inducted into the Kikuyu community.


El-Amin was given a Kikuyu name, Mungai, while his associate who accompanied him in the trip, US Hip Hop producer Prince Michael was christened Muchiri.

Speaking in Kimahuri village, Kieni, El-Amin was quoted saying that he was a changed man.

“Now that I have visited the shrine, and spoke to God, I will head back to the U.S. and refrain from causing any trouble.”

The two reportedly laid wreaths at the grave of Elijah Kamitha Kiambati – a man famed for reviving the Mount Kenya Prayer Walk in 1935.

In March 2017, the promoter lost a suit where he was seeking a stake in the late Michael Jackson’s wealth.

In the initial lawsuit, former Michael Jackson associates including Qadree El-Amin had claimed that the singer had promised them a 15-percent stake in his estate.
