I Sing for Christ, Not Politicians – Philipa Baafi Discloses

According to the "I Go Dance" composer, she makes music for Christ and not political parties. She said her songs were meant to win souls for God and encourage positivity.

Celebrated Ghanaian Gospel artiste, Philipa Baafi, has revealed that her smash hit “Go High” was never intended as a campaign song for the National Patriotic Party (N.P.P) during the 2008 general elections.

In an interview with Graphic Showbiz, the celebrated gospel artiste clarified that contrary to popular belief, her widely acclaimed song, “Go High” featuring Elder Agyare, which was heavily endorsed by the NPP, was not specifically created for the party.

“I did not do that song for the NPP. It is a song that touched on victory and the party loved it so they hopped on it to use for their campaign and they paid for copyrights,” she said.

While she commended other artistes who would openly support and compose songs for political parties, she said she would not endeavour to go that route.

“If I have a song and a particular political party wants to use it, they just pay for copyrights and go ahead with it. But for me to be paid to compose a song specifically for a political party, that won’t happen,” she revealed.
