|Stevie Wonder Is Moving To Ghana Permanently by tamdun: 12:28am On Feb 23|
(CNN)Singer Stevie Wonder is moving to Ghana.
The iconic, award-winning performer spoke to Oprah Winfrey in an interview explaining his decision, citing the political turmoil in the United States.
"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."
Winfrey then asked, "You're going to permanently move to Ghana?"
"I am," replied the singer, known for such hits as "You Are the Sunshine of My Life" and "I Just Called to Say I Love You."
He added, "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?"
This isn't the first time he has said he was considering moving to Ghana. In 1994, he said he felt there was "more of a sense of community" than in the US.
Wonder, a Michigan native, learned to play piano, drums and harmonica by age 9 and signed to Motown in 1961. Since then, he has won 25 Grammy Awards, an honorary award and has been nominated 74 times.

Why not come to Nigeria, where Fulani cows are better barbequed?

So basically he's saying:
♫ Heart's blazing like a five alarm fire
And I don't even give a care
I feel like the world is turnin' on me,
My dreams turnin' to ashes right in front of my face,
And I'm gettin' kind of worried,
And I feel so out of place,
I feel like I'm slippin' deeper,
Slippin' deeper into myself,
And I can't take it, ♫
