Dr. Bawumia donates GH¢100K to support Yaw Sarpong amid battle with stroke



The flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, paid a visit to the veteran gospel musician Yaw Sarpong, who is currently grappling with health challenges.

During the visit, the NPP’s Ashanti Regional Chairman, Bernard Antwi Boasiako, also known as Chairman Wontumi, said that the vice president’s presence aimed to uplift and assist the ailing gospel musician.

“Hearing of your plight, I informed my boss [Bawumia], and he resolved to meet you and assess your condition prior to departing the Ashanti Region,” he stated.

EDHUB, via their X account, disclosed that Dr. Bawumia contributed a sum of GH¢100,000 to aid Yaw Sarpong’s medical care.

“Today, the flagbearer of the NPP, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, and his campaign team visited renowned gospel musician Yaw Sarpong, who is currently at the camp of Bishop J.Y. Adu due to health issues. Dr. Bawumia donated GH¢100,000 to support his healthcare,” the caption read.

Accompanying the vice president were notable figures including the NPP National Chairman, Stephen Ntim; gospel artiste Nicholas Omane Acheampong, and others.

Yaw Sarpong battles stroke

It can be recalled that a couple of months ago, Yaw Sarpong’s manager confirmed that his artiste was indeed battling a stroke.

Nana Poku Ashis, who spoke exclusively to GhanaWeb, disclosed that the ‘Oko yi” hitmaker had been ill for over a year.

“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 said.

“Everyone needs help. We would need prayers, and those who have and are willing to help can offer him a little. The few people he has impacted with his music should also help,” he added.

Prior to Yaw Sarpong’s manager’s confirmation of his illness, gospel singers Diana Asamoah and Maame Tiwa had already informed the public.

Diana Asamoah, during her show on Angel FM on February 26, 2024, revealed that Yaw Sarpong was battling a mild stroke.

This followed Maame Tiwa’s viral video where she was weeping and pleading with God to grant Yaw Sarpong ‘healing’.
