That Stevie Wonder dreams of moving to Ghana is certainly not new: already in 1994, speaking to the International Association of African American Music, the singer had in fact expressed his desire to go and live in the African country “for his strong sense of community », but in the end he stayed at his home in the States (he is originally from Michigan). Now, on the other hand, Stevland Hardaway Morris (this is the name in the registry office) seems to be firmly intent on abandoning the United States forever, thanks to the too many political unrest that agitates the country and the rampant racism, as he himself explained to Oprah Winfrey, guest of his TV lounge.
“I want to see the US smile again”
“I want to see this nation smile again. And I want to see her before I leave to move to Ghana, because I will, ”said the 71-year-old Motown legend. in the video interview with Oprah who, somewhat stunned, then asked him if the transfer would be definitive. “Sure! – Wonder replied decidedly -. I don’t want my children’s children to have to say “oh please appreciate me. Please respect me, please know that I am important, please consider me ”. What story is this? ‘ For now, the singer’s entourage – known for planetary hits including “You are the sunshine of my life” and “I just called to say I love you” – did not want to comment on the news, but on social media it immediately created great ferment.
