Michael Jackson has been named the top-earning dead celebrity for the sixth year in a row.

That King Of Pop reign just won’t let up!

Michael Jackson may no longer be here in the physical, but his impact is ever-enduring. And, per Forbes, there are receipts to prove it.

Because for another successive year, MJ has been named the highest earning deceased celebrity.

Details below…

Per the publication, Jackson’s Estate accrued a whopping $400 million over the last year.

MJ’s wins are mostly linked to the sale of his stake in EMI Music Publishing. While the rest of the tally is made up by additional returns from his Mijac Music catalogue, a new record deal with Sony, and TV projects such as CBS special ‘Michael Jackson’s Halloween.’ First screening last year, the which returned for another annual screening last week.

Speaking on the posthumous MJ wins, John Branca, the co-executor of his Estate said:

“You see Charlie Brown Christmas and Charlie Brown Thanksgiving every year, so now we’re looking to have Michael Jackson’s Halloween every year. We hope that it’ll become evergreen.”

The figure bring Jackson’s earnings to $2.4 billion in the decade since his 2009 death.

This is what i am talking about. Later some folks would be comparing sportsmen with musicians. The work of musicians live on for many years, but it's barely so with footballers and other sportsmen. MUSIC RULES!

Some of you guys surprised should take several chill pills. If you think sport pays more post humously, Google is your friend. Bob Marley, Tupac, Elvis Presley, Prince etc are all there to clear your doubts.

I disagree with you
Footballers are also remembered and their achievements are not forgotten easily e.g Pele, Delima Ronaldo, Jay Jay Okocha etc .. Everybody na king for him lane

He is talking about their earning potential.

The difference is that musicians create intellectual property which allows them to earn money even when not active. When was the last time Dolly Parton released a song? Yet she makes $50 million on average every year from her catalogue.
