Three bottles of red wine, a platter of nail-polish and four dozen pairs of high heel boots are lined up waiting for her/him, but still there is no sign of Sterling Infinity. We’ve been warned. It doesn’t like the daylight.

Prince has a long tradition of taking young women under his purple wing and pushing them into the spotlight. There have been some good (yay Sheila E!) and some bad (ugh Carmen Electra...), but there haven't been many as genuine and worthy of respect in their own right as the Cameroonian singer Andy Allo. Although her latest record Superconductor was produced by Prince and features performances from members of the New Power Generation, Andy Allo is clearly the real person in…Continue
