When Stevie Wonder hinted to Oprah that he would permanently move to Ghana because of injustices in the USA
Back in November 2020, in the heat of the US elections, 25-time Grammy winner Stevie Wonder joined Oprah Winfrey Apple TV ’s The Oprah Conversation.
In the interview, the 70-year-old singer told Oprah he had plans of permanently moving to Ghana. He said: “..I want to see this nation smile again, and I want to see it before I travel and move to Ghana.”
When Oprah asked why, he replied: ” ..because I don’t wanna see my children’s children’s children having to say ‘oh please like me, please respect me, please know that I am important, please value me…’. What kind of $%$% is that?”
