He motivated and shaped many stars into what they have become today. Part of the numerous celebrities and ordinary people whom Prince touched, is our own Charly Boy The AreaFada. This is what Charly Boy had to say about the brief encounter he had with Prince.
“It was way back in the early eighties as a groupie with a backstage pass. In the same room with Prince? I may have walked away that night with only a handshake, but it was a handshake that changed my life for the better. It awoken a desire to be an entertainer like this Demi god that just shook my hand. From that night, I became an avid fan. I read and followed any news on him, I listened with wrapt attention. The more I researched him the more I fell in love with him, you can take that literally. If I ever had any gay tendencies, he would have been the one I would have given my body to, even though Prince wasn’t gay. That’s how deep my love is for this beautiful soul. Rumors circled him because he had such a defiantly outlandish persona with a sexuality as ambiguous as it was voracious. Oh my Prince”
