Legendary world musician and pianist, Stevie Wonder, has hinted that he will soon relocate to Ghana permanently.
In an interview with Award-winning show host, Oprah Winfrey, on her show, ‘The Oprah Conversation’, Stevie Wonder stated emphatically that he did not want his descendants to have to deal with racial injustice according to a report on Mdundo.
The interviewed that aired last week saw Wonder discuss his career highlights, family, health and the state of America after Former Pres. Donald Trump divisive tenure. With nationals polarized by race, class and political affiliation, the United States of America has a difficult place to live for millions of marginalized communities.
He touched on his dream to move from the States saying,“I want to see the nation smile again, and I want to see it before I move to Ghana…I’m going to do that. I’m going to move permanently to Ghana,” he said.
“Because I don’t want to see my children’s children’s children’s have to say ‘Oh please, like me. Please respect me. Please value me. What kind of sh*t is that?” the singer noted.
Stevie Wonder further stated that he wanted the world to become a better place where hate does not exist anymore.
“I want the world to get better. I want us to get beyond this place. I want us all to go to the funeral of hate. That’s what I want,” he said.
According to a report online, this is not the first time the musician has referred to Ghana as the destination he anticipates escaping from the United States to. In a 1994 speech to the International Association of African American Music, he promised to relocate to Ghana because he believed “there’s more of a sense of community.” He has also visited the West African nation a handful of times.
