Notable figures accompanied the Vice President, including the NPP National Chairman, Stephen Ntim, and gospel artist Nicholas Omane Acheampong.

It is worth noting that Yaw Sarpong has been battling a stroke. His manager, Nana Poku Ashis, confirmed that the musician has been ill for over a year, stating, "He has been bedridden for over a year now. It started around this time last year. It was really bad when it happened a year ago, but we are hoping that he will regain his strength in the coming months."

Ashis also appealed for prayers and support, emphasizing that everyone needs help, and those impacted by Yaw Sarpong’s music should contribute in any way they can.

Prior to this confirmation, gospel singers Diana Asamoah and Maame Tiwa had already informed the public about Yaw Sarpong’s condition. Diana Asamoah revealed on her show on Angel FM on 26 February 2024, that Yaw Sarpong was battling a mild stroke.
