Multi talented pop musical sex symbol and enigma, Prince-real name Prince Rogers Nelson, turns 50 today.The artiste who have had series of name changes in an effort to create an acceptable identity, was once described byKylie Minogue as ''sex on a stick'' and Boy George as ''A dwarf who's been dipped in a bucket of pubic hair''.Prince's smooth voice and stage craft has created a nitche for him,rather than his identity controversy,the height of which happened in 1983 when he changed his name to an unpronounceable symbol. Since debuting in 1978,Prince has contributed to re-shapening the music world.where he has made a perfect forray into all genes from rock to soul and on to pop,churning out hit tracks like Purple rain,The most beautiful Girl in the world.To a man who have contributed enormously to raising the stakes of the blackman:Happy Birthday!!

Happy Birthday to Prince.

I thank God that he escaped from the dangers of fame and fortune and will grow older gracefully and not with regrets like Michael Jackson.
