Music Icon Stevie Wonder has declared that he will live out the rest of his life in Ghana to get away from systemic discrimination in America.
The 22-time Grammy-winner told Oprah Winfrey during a recent episode of “Oprah Conversations” that he will not be returning to America once he leaves.
Stevie explained the reason for wanting to relocate.
“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.
In a past interview, Stevie had hinted at the same thing.
HNHH reports that Wonder vowed to the International Association of African American Music in 1994 that he would eventually settle in Ghana because “there’s more of a sense of community.”
