Commenting on the upcoming event, Yaw remarked,
"A lot of people do not know that I come from a Theatre Arts background and as such, I have a very keen interest in the complete spectrum of entertainment. This is what I have tried to achieve over the past 7 editions of Yaw Live On stage, and I believe this year's event is set to be the best ever, incorporating a hilarious stage play, music, dance and comedy into a 360-degree entertainment experience for the audience. I want everyone to come out and have fun with me on the 29th. It is going to be spectacular."
