Prince’s sister was preparing for star’s death

Prince’s sister Tyka Nelson knew the music icon would die young.
The singer had been preparing for her brother’s death for two years before receiving news about his passing in April (16).
“I knew that it was coming,” she told news show Entertainment Tonight.
“He said it a couple of years ago: ‘I’ve done everything that I’ve come to do,'” she recalled. “I was crushed for about two years.
“I’ve had two years to deal with it, but there’s a lot of people that have only had from April to now, so I guess I would say give it another year and a half and maybe you’ll be where I’m at.”
Tyka is determined to keep her late brother’s legacy alive, and she’s making plans to release the 2,000-plus unheard songs he kept in a vault at his Paisley Park recording compound.
“He’s written a massive amount of music and in one of our conversations, he said, ‘How I want to be remembered is as one of the most prolific writers in the world,'” she explained. “So I’m going to do everything that I can to make that dream come true.”
Tyka is behind an initiative to open Paisley Park to fans for the first time – Prince’s home officially opens to the public on Thursday (06Oct16).
