10 Things make You Know About Prince.

Plenty story don cum out from the death of pop-star Prince, Some say dey treat Prince six days ago for overdose of drugs wen he use for body.

But somethings dey about the Pop-star wen you suppose know about as per wen he still dey breath and waka as human being.

According to America website dem sey the following about Prince wen we nor know about am, Maybe bi cus, dem never born some of us dat time or we never grow up and cum begin listen to music.

1. His name really was Prince. Prince Rogers Nelson to be exact. Prince’s dad was a jazz pianist and songwriter who went by the stage name Prince Rogers. He gave the name to his son “because I wanted him to do everything I wanted to do,” he said, according to the 2003 book Possessed: The Rise and Fall of Prince.

2. He went door-to-door for the Jehovah’s Witnesses. Prince was introduced to the religion by the musician Larry Graham. In 2008, the “1999” singer told the New Yorker he attended meetings at a local Kingdom Hall and, like his fellow witnesses, he went door-to-door now and then to proselytize. “Sometimes people act surprised, but mostly they’re really cool about it,” he said.

3. He was a Ping-Pong ace. In 2014, the Associated Press reported that a Ping-Pong table was a centerpiece outside the recording studios. He’s described as a “pretty deft player.” His footwear for the game? “White shoes with acrylic heels lighting up blue with every move.” Of course.

4. He also had game: While he was barely over 5 feet tall, he was a baller. In an episode of Chappelle’s Show, Charlie Murphy talked about partying with Prince in the ’80s. The superstar challenged him to a pickup game of basketball. “This cat could ball,” said Murphy, who noted that he played in a “Zorro-type outfit.”

5. He would wear platform flip-flops with socks and yoga pants: “It’s perhaps worth noting that [his feet] are wearing a pair of flip-flops with huge platform soles teamed with socks,” a writer from The Guardian noted in 2015. “The socks and flip-flops are white, as is the rest of his outfit.” It’s a style that he long appreciated. In his 2008 New Yorker profile, it said, “Prince padded into the kitchen, a small 50-year-old man in yoga pants and a big sweater, wearing platform flip-flops over white socks, like a geisha.”

6. He didn’t use profanity. While his 1992 Love Symbol Album came with a parental advisory label, he gave up swearing in his music — and in his personal life. He explained it in a 2014 interview with Essence, “Did you ever hear Muhammad Ali curse? Would you curse in front of your kids? To your mother?”.

7. He didn’t eat meat — we don’t think. He has been described as both a vegetarian and a vegan in the press, and the former is more likely to be true. In 2011, PETA’s one-time Sexiest Vegetarian Alive consented to HeavyTable.com’s “What’s in My Fridge?” feature (again, with lots of conditions, including that his fridge couldn’t be photographed), and that alone was a fascinating read. DunkAroos, the kangaroo-shaped cookies, 18 varieties of mustard, and a gallon of maple syrup were among the things he stocked up on. However, he offered no explanation as to why there was braunschweiger, a smoked liverwurst, in the fridge.

8. He had his own private hair salon. In an interview with the U.K.’s Daily Mail, his ex-wife Mayte Garcia said that their home had its own hair salon, which she was never allowed to use. “The salon wasn’t for me, it was for my husband. Prince needed his space,” she said. He was once sued for giving a makeover to a Los Angeles mansion he rented from NBA player Carlos Boozer for $70,000 a month. He installed “beauty-salon chairs” in one of the bedrooms.

9. He lost a son. In 1996, a son he had with Garcia passed away shortly after birth and was a bit of a mystery. “Boy Gregory” was the name on the baby’s birth certificate. Officials later determined the infant died of a skeletal abnormality known as Pfeiffer’s syndrome seven days after he was born.

10. He hadn’t cried since he was a teenager. He had a troubled relationship with his father and was thrown out of his house at least once. A 1991 profile in Interview reported that he pleaded to be allowed to come back home — while standing in a phone booth crying for two hours. He later noted it was the last time he had cried.
