In a recent interview with Andy Dosty on Hitz 103.9 FM, the CEO of Farmhouse Production confirmed they have been in this battle with the young actor since the beginning. He added that it became severe during the shooting of season six, where most of the scenes John Peasah was in, he was seated because he found standing difficult. The filmmaker also said he and his team are solidly behind the ill actor and doing everything they can to get him back to doing the thing he loves.

"We have been in this battle with him since the beginning. We learned about the severity of the situation when we were filming season six, so if you watch season six very closely, you will realise that in most of the scenes he was in, he was sitting because it was very difficult for him to stand. Ever since the news broke, we have been reaching out to him. The thing is, Farmhouse, we do not want to blow our own horns to air in public what we are doing for him, we want people to know that we are heavily supporting him," he said.
