The 25 time grammy award winner Stevie Wonder told Oprah Winfrey about his intentions to move to the motherland, on an episode of her Apple TV+ program that was filmed back in November 2020.
The singer and humanitarian noted that America has changed and that racial injustices plaguing the first world has him concerned.
“I promise you [America], if you do the right thing, I will give you this song. I will give it to you. You can have it,” he said, according to Hot New Hip Hop. “Because I wanna see this nation smile again. And I want to see it before I leave to travel to move to Ghana, because I’m going to do that.”
“You’re gonna move permanently to Ghana?” the talk show host asked seeking clarity about his remarks.
“I am,” said the visually challenged singer who came into the music scene back in the 60’s.
“I don’t want to see my children’s, children’s children have to say ‘Oh please like me, please respect me, please know that I am important, please value me.’ What is that?” he asked.
