Award-winning Michigan performer Stevie Wonder has once again disclosed his plans to permanently move to Ghana. The 74-time Grammy nominee and the 25-time winner made this known in an interview with Oprah Winfrey.

According to Stevie, “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.”

This makes it the second time he is considering moving to Ghana after he stated that he felt there was “more of a sense of community” there in 1994, CNN reports.

Explaining the reason for his decision, Stevie said, “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?”

    If only we know what we have in West Africa. Our kin by blood who were taken to the Americas wants a sense of community we take for granted. I love his reasons not to beg for acceptance from fellow human beings because of skin color! As part of the human community, West Africans have a LOT to offer from the reasonable parts of our lands, we have overcome the trans-Atlantic slave trade, tribal wars, European colonial occupation, and all forms of racism on the global stage, yet we are STILL here! It is time to be “home” again for all children of West Africa, from the U.S to the Caribbean, South America, Canada, Europe, and everywhere in-between- where ever our people are they should be able to call Africa home because it IS. DNA testifies to that no matter how many generations removed we are from the African soil, it is part of who we are!
