Ghana has become a hotspot for international activities. Not long ago Grammy Award winning soul singer Stevie Wonder expressed interest in relocating permanently to the country.
On Monday April 12, CEO of Twitter announced Ghana as the place to have its first African headquarters and more international acts follow suit.
Popular American stand-up comedian David Chappelle, has revealed plans to relocate to Ghana, saying he will follow singer Stevie Wonder.
Steve Wonder told Oprah in an interview that he has grown tired of the racial injustice in America and would want a peaceful country to raise his grandkid so he will move to Ghana.
Dave Chappelle also disclosed that it was a wise decision Steve Wonder took and he will also be following the superstar to make Ghana his permanent home.
“Stevie Wonder said in the press recently that he wanted to move to Ghana,” he told model Naomi Campbell. “Those of us in the room did know Stevie personally. He said his thing many times over the years and we know it. But the last time he said it, what he said is: ‘I’m moving to Ghana so that I can be valued and respected’.”
“And you know you have to think as a Black American, who amongst us is more valued and respected is Stevie Wonder and the idea that he will feel this way at this stage in his life and career. He goes on to say ‘I’d do this for my grandchildren so they don’t have to worry about it.’ I’m going to say the same because clearly, this is going to last for the foreseeable future,” he continued.
Dave concluded that, “And to see him decide to make the move, I wanted to go…Stevie is the soul of American culture and when the soul leaves the body, this thing is dead. I’ll follow him over there but I’ll go myself. I’ll do it for him.”
