“I want to see the nation smile again, and I want to see it before I move to Ghana, he told Oprah. I’m going to do that. I’m going to move permanently to Ghana. Because I don’t want to see my children’s children’s children’s have to say ‘Oh please, like me. Please respect me. Please value me. What kind of sh*t is that?”He said
The singer further stated that he wants the world to become a better place where racial injustice does not exist anymore.
He added: “I want the world to get better. I want us to get beyond this place. I want us all to go to the funeral of hate. That’s what I want.”
