He definitely qualifies

Many people consider "Key of Life" to be the greatest album ever made. Ditto with Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On" to name another obvious classic album by a black artist that you omitted. You just seem to have a blind spot and/or be out of touch when it comes to this subject. Yeah, maybe it has to do with the relative lack of black people in Australia but again, these artists are all hugely popular with people of all races.
In terms of legendary status, Michael and Prince have always been neck and neck (which one is better is an old argument) even though Michael is more well-known and has obviously sold more records than Prince (or anyone else, basically) but legendary isn't simply measured by popularity. Dylan is one of the most legendary figures in music but he's not as popular as multiple other artists of a lesser "tier of legends".
This discussion is getting silly so I'll probably have to stop with this post.
