He had convinced President Arap Moi and the Ministry of Sports that he would bring Michael Jackson to open the All Africa Games 1987.He ended up bringing an older brother of Michael called Jermaine (see picture).
1987,Kenya hosted the All Africa Games. Mr. Richard "Dick"Berg a promoter, allegedly promised to bring to Kenya some of the biggest names in the music industry at the time to perform at the opening ceremony including Michael Jackson,"Kool & the Gang" and "Earth, Wind and Fire.
Dick Berg was said to have been paid hundreds of millions of Kenya shillings in advance payments by the Kenyan Govt to secure the presence of these artistes. However, as soon as he was paid, Dick disappeared after pocketing the loot never to be seen again.Only Jermaine Jackson ended up performing at the event where he did his popular song, "Too good to be true."And indeed it was too good to be true.
So where did the money go? no one really knows because all ministries involved engaged in a merry go round of accusations.
investigation was ordered into the disappearance of the 4th All Africa Games funds but whatever were it's findings or recommendations, have never quite been made public or adopted. As long as information can be hidden, the same schemes are bound to happen.
PS: @mzeiya has never heard of him
