21 May, 2020
Ace gospel artiste Philipa Baafi turns the BIG 40 with a spirit filled single titled ”It is well”. Philipa’s new single is one of the songs on her forthcoming 10th which is scheduled for release next year. Philipa has revealed that, she was inspired to out this piece together to encourage the downhearted, disappointed and those who have lost hope to endeavour to turn their negativity into positive confessions.
Recording her first ever solo album some 2 decades ago, this single finds Philipa at the peak of her artistry. Typical of a Philipa Baafi song, her iconic voice is heard rendered beautifully and confidently on the track which she sang in English, French and her native Akan. Philipa inhabits this song so fully because she claims that “Life is like an undulating surface with hills, plains and valleys; one can be up today and down tomorrow. But in whatever period of life one is confronted with, the antidote is to maintain a certain posture. That posture is a positive attitude and outlook knowing that the God you serve is able to help you no matter the circumstances and hence the track, It is Well”
Philipa has churned out 9 albums within a blistering career which has seen its ups and downs over the past 2 decades. She has several major hits over the years and this include songs such as ‘Go High, I go dance, Nkwa, Last Stop, Awurade Sore, Nhyira ba, Me gye medin, Dee eba wonsem afe yi, Mogya n’akasa, Ebenezer’ among others. She has touched millions across the globe with inspirational songs and performances everywhere.
Outside of music, Philipa Baafi, who is an Occupational Therapist, is a third year Physician Assistant student at Radford University in Accra. Her academic ambition is to become a specialist gynecologist. She is a member of the Church of Pentecost and fellowships with the Pentecost International Worship Centre (PIWC), West Hills Assembly with her husband Kwame, and their two kids, Adom and Sika.
