Motown legend Stevie Wonder has criticised world leaders for failing to do anything to help the developing world over the last few decades.

The SUPERSTITION star, 55, is angry the developing world has seen its natural resources taken over by wealthier countries.

He says, "This whole thing (alleviating debt) was set in motion a long, long time ago.

"I mean, people are still arguing and fighting about dropping the (developing world) debt, and it's a joke to me. It's a joke because look at how much has been taken from Africa.

"God has given every continent on this planet some natural resource we can use to survive, for trading or whatever.

"But the world powers go and turn over the areas and take whatever they do, work out those ridiculous contracts..."
