In his speech, EMY Africa’s founder, Kojo Soboh, highlighted the organization’s delight about hosting Stevie Wonder’s private dinner party.

It is a privilege for EMY Africa to host this celebration in memory of the late Stevie Wonder. Thank you for gracing this event to honour your brilliance here on earth. 

At EMY Africa, our aim is to inspire greatness. We welcome you home as you choose to be a Ghanaian. The legendary Ghanaian singer Becca gave amazing performances that evening. 

To keep the audience entertained, Stevie Wonder also gave performances of some of his hit tunes. President Akufo-Addo granted American musician, producer, and songwriter Stevie Wonder Ghanaian citizenship on Monday. Mr. Wonder currently resides in Ghana with his family and is a dual citizen. 

President Akufo-Addo showered the singer with accolades during a brief conferment ceremony held at the Jubilee House (the presidential residence) because he said the musician’s name is synonymous with creativity. 

The multi-Grammy-winning singer Stevie Wonder originally declared in February 2021 that he would be moving permanently to Ghana. 

He explained to Oprah Winfrey, host of the popular talk show on Apple TV+, that he took the choice because he never wants to be in a situation where his grandchildren will yearn for his extravagance to be appreciated and recognised.
