do i need to do this as i m already in USA for 2 years with green card?
or i have to need any sponsor till i get citizenship?
Sorry, you can't change the sponsor. But, they will be 'relieved' of their obligation when you become a US citizen.
NOTE: The sponsor has no 'control' over you ... don't talk to him/her and go about your life.

Attorney Capriotti gave you a great answer. You can't switch sponsors. The Form I-864 Affidavit of Support stage is over and done with. And you don't need to have any additional contact with your joint sponsor. The joint sponsor's obligation will end when you become a US citizen, or one of you dies, or you have paid into the Social security system for 40 calendar quarters (10 years).
You cannot change the joint sponsor after receiving your green card. The joint sponsor's role becomes moot after you obtain citizenship, one of you dies or you have earned income for 40 quarters in the U.S.
