  • Post category:News

Stevie Wonder, the legendary musician, marked his 74th birthday with a jubilant celebration held at the Labadi Beach Hotel in Ghana. Organized by the Ghana Tourism Authority and the Beyond the Return Secretariat, the event was not only a commemoration of Wonder’s remarkable life but also a joyous occasion celebrating his new Ghanaian citizenship and it coincided with the birthday of his son, Mandla Kadjay Steveland Morris, who shares the same birthdate of May 13th.

The festivities were graced by a distinguished guest list, including notable people such as Akwasi Agyeman, CEO of the Ghana Tourism Authority, Akwasi Ababio, Director of Diaspora Affairs at the Office of the President, Ambassador Erieka Bennet, Head of Missions at Diaspora African Forum, Annabelle McKenzie, Director of Beyond the Return Secretariat, musician Rocky Dawuni, and Dentaa Amoateng, CEO of GUBA Enterprise.

The highlight of the evening came when Rocky Dawuni took to the stage to perform. Stevie Wonder, thoroughly enjoying the music, couldn’t resist the urge to join in. With infectious energy, he made his way to the stage, much to the delight of the audience. Stevie’s impromptu performance alongside Rocky Dawuni created an unforgettable moment, showcasing the timeless talent and spirit of the music icon.

The celebration not only honored Stevie Wonder’s musical legacy but also served as a testament to the enduring bonds between Ghana and the global diaspora. Ambassador Bennett took the occasion as an opportunity to honour him with a Bridge Builders Award. This award is given to people from Africa and the diaspora who have made significant contributions to connecting Africans and the global African diaspora through their work.

Through events like these, the Beyond the Return initiative continues to foster connections, celebrate culture, and promote Ghana as a vibrant destination for tourism and cultural exchange. As the night concluded, it was evident that Stevie Wonder’s birthday celebration in Ghana was not just a party; it was a reflection of the power of music to unite people across borders and generations, leaving a lasting impact on all who were fortunate enough to be part of the festivities.
