Editor's note: The music superstar Prince has died, his publicist has confirmed. Here is an appreciation from 2015, from the producer of a BBC documentary on his life.

Mobeen Azhar is best known as a hard-hitting investigative reporter for the BBC, working on issues such as religious violence in Lahore and heroin addiction in Karachi.

Prince — the Purple One, who reeled off pop hits in five different decades — has died at age 57. The shocking news was confirmed by Prince's publicist after reports that police were investigating a death at his Paisley Park compound outside Minneapolis.

"It is with profound sadness that I am confirming that the legendary, iconic performer Prince Rogers Nelson has died at his Paisley Park residence this morning at the age of 57," publicist Yvette Noel-Schure said. "There are no further details as to the cause of death at this time."
