Yaw Sarpong noted that he does not discriminate but listens to all genre of music saying "You can pick a whole lot from them [secular artistes]. The instruments they use to play their songs is the same instrument used in the gospel industry that is why I listen to everyone’s songs but if there is profanity in the lyrics, then I say 'we were not brought up that way' but the rhythm, I listen.”
