‘Go high’ hitmaker and gospel music iconic figure, Philipa Baafi has revealed her readiness and willingness to serve in the administration of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo if she’s appointed.
Contrary to popular belief that gospel artistes and musicians in general must refrain from political activities, she said if given a political task she’ll accept it wholeheartedly.
In an exclusive interview with Amansan Krakye on GBC Radio Central in Cape Coast monitored by MyNewsGh.com, Philipa Baafi said that being given the opportunity to serve mankind only gives glory to God.
She remarked “I will never say never. Imagine if someone should call on me to serve mankind why won’t I, even though God hasn’t revealed to me yet. But anything that will bring progress and honour to the name of God, that will bring development to Ghana and improve the lives of many people if I’m called I will gladly do it because I’m a citizen of this country.
“Whilst I continue to be a citizen of this country I will accept any tasks assigned to me wholeheartedly. It’s like being in a school and you’ve been chosen to be the class prefect, you have to do it because those who chose you know that you can do it.
“So if I’m called to be given a political appointment I won’t refuse on the basis that I’m a gospel artiste. When we talk about leadership it is not about riding in big vehicles, it is service to mankind and your nation.
“I will gladly do it because at the end of the day God will be praised and people will also say that when I came into this world I fully accomplished the task I was given. It is a good step and when it comes I will do it with all my might”.
It is important to note that in the lead up to the 2008 general elections, Philipa Baafi’s song ‘Go high’ was used by the then presidential candidate, Nana Akufo Addo as his campaign song.
