Meet Desray Junca, the charming Cape dancer that captured Prince with her moves
As the world continues to mourn the death of music icon Prince, tales and anecdotes are told about the legendary person that he was.
A Cape Town-born professional dancer has also shared her story of meeting Prince and working with him many years ago.
Desray Junca says she caught his eye while performing at a Cabaret show in France.
One time when he was there, he noticed me and tried to get in contact with me.Desray Junca, professional dancer
Admittedly, she was nervous to speak with him when he invited her for dinner.
After their initial meet up, Prince invited her to see him several times across Europe and the United States.
He invited me a couple of times actually. The day before, he'd say 'don't you want to meet up with me in London?' or 'don't you want to meet up with me in Germany?' and he'd book my ticket and say let's go.Desray Junca, professional dancer
They kept a tight relationship for over two years and shot two music videos together - one which was never released.
After featuring in his videos, meeting his mother, and having a whirlwind connection, Prince made her a proposition to live with and work for him, but she graciously declined.
The last time she saw him was in 2001, shortly after he had lost his father.
She says she'll always have their memories and remember him as a simple man.
