Renowned American singer and songwriter Stevie Wonder has expressed excitement about being granted Ghanaian citizenship.

According to the multiple Grammy award winner, the conferment of Ghanaian citizenship on him is a dream that has become a reality.

“As I remember as a little child boy when I was growing up, I listened to the music of Africa, wondering where Africa was and having a connection.

“Hearing the music of Miriam Makeba. Hearing the music of all the different people, emulating the sound of their voices, saying words that didn’t make any sense to me, but I just loved the sound of it, and I have always loved to connect back home.

“I’m so happy to be a citizen of Ghana because I love the people and its culture. Even though I wanted this, I didn’t know where and how, but I’m happy what I saw in my spirit has become a reality,” he noted at a press conference held at the African Regent Hotel and organised by the Ghana Tourism Authority (GTA) in Accra on May 13, 2024.

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, at a brief ceremony held at the Jubilee House in Accra on May 13, 2024, presented Stevie Wonder with a Certificate of Citizenship after taking the Oath of Allegiance.

Stevie Wonder attributed his relocation to Ghana to the current political turmoil in the US.

Wonder, a Michigan native, learned to play piano, drums and harmonica by age nine and signed to Motown in 1961. Since then, he has won 25 Grammy Awards and has been nominated 74 times.

He is popularly known for songs like ‘You Are the Sunshine of My Life’, ‘I Just Called to Say I Love You’, ‘Part-Time-Lover’, ‘Superstition’, ‘Happy Birthday’ and ‘As’.
