Chinese firm Alibaba celebrated its 18th anniversary recently and it was company’s founder who stole the show. Jack Ma, a billionaire and one of the most celebrated entrepreneur in the world right now, danced like Michael Jackson. Ma who is a seemingly a big fan of putting a nice show, set the stage on fire by performing dance on some of the hit numbers of Jackson like Billie Jean and Black and White.
The billionaire entered the stage riding on a motorbike and wearing a black and golden coloured mask. And then there were some Michael Jackson’s iconic dance moves that Jack Ma performed. He started with the Jackson’s famous Billie Jean and next was the famous Black and White on which Ma even invited the audience to join him on the stage. Totally like a rockstar!
Jack Ma is quite a showman. The CEO, on company’s 10th anniversary celebration, had put up a huge wig and performed parts of the Lion King before thousands of Alibaba employees. The company, this year has a reason to celebrate as the its stock saw huge surge since January and the company’s valuation recently passed $400 billion.

Jack Ma is the first mainland Chinese entrepreneur to appear on the cover page of Forbes magazine. He is known for his wise words and of course the story of how Alibaba came into being despite Ma knowing nothing about internet. There is a story that Ma was almost killed by an American businessman in 1995. It happened that Jack Ma had travelled to US to help a Chinese firm to recoup funds from an American business. Instead of returning the money, the businessman held him on gunpoint and kidnapped him and held him in a house for 2 days.
Jack, in order to get out of the situation, promised the man that he would start an internet business in China in partnership with him. Surprisingly, Ma knew very little about Internet and its working at that time. He started by making websites for Chinese companies and rest is the history.
