MIchael Jackson is clearly more famous. At least in Asia.
Elvis and Michael both may be equally famous in west but if you go somewhere in rural area of any Asian country you'll find people who knows Michael Jackson. Same can not be said for Elvis. In cities people may know Elvis but his songs are not popular. Michael's songs are. It's probably same in African countries.
My uncle who has never heard any English language song has heard Michael Jackson. I can find many people like him
My grandma, she's 80+ and she doesn't know many local celebrities but she'd say "The guy who looks like girl." when you mention name 'Michael'. She hasn't heard any song (except when I play) but she knows him. I was surprised when I found out.1
