The President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Akufo-Addo, has granted music icon Stevie Wonder Ghanaian citizenship in a remarkable ceremony at Ghana’s Jubilee House.

President Akufo-Addo expressed that bestowing Ghanaian citizenship upon Stevie Wonder is not just a recognition of his immense talent but also a nod to his deep connection with the African continent and his continuous efforts to foster unity, solidarity, and cultural exchanges among all people of African descent.

According to the official statement from the nation’s presidential website, President Akufo-Addo highlighted Wonder’s commitment to Africa and his tireless advocacy for social causes, making him a fitting recipient of this honour.

Underlining the significance of the Year of Return initiative, which served as a bridge between African descendants worldwide, Akufo-Addo urged others to draw inspiration from Wonder’s legacy.

Stevie Wonder now joins a host of other notable individuals who have made Ghana their home, including George Padmore, Bob Marley‘s widow Rita, Maya Angelou, and W.E.B. du Bois, all of whom contributed significantly to the nation.

Born in Michigan, Wonder’s musical journey began with his early talents, leading to a legendary career with Motown Records, marked by 25 Grammy Awards and 74 nominations.

In a poignant moment captured during the citizenship conferment, Stevie Wonder’s emotional connection to Ghana was palpable as he received his Ghanaian passport, symbolizing a new chapter in his life’s journey.
