American music legend Stevie Wonder has been officially granted Ghanaian citizenship by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

During a ceremony at the Jubilee House, President Akufo-Addo conferred the Ghanaian citizenship status on the renowned musician, who is currently in Ghana with his family.
