Ghanaian Gospel singer, Philipa Baafi, has made his stance known when it comes to composing songs for political parties.

She opened up about her unreadiness to compose a song for any political party in Ghana.

The famous Gospel singer said she sings for Christ—and not political parties.

She, however, revealed that copyrights to her song (s) can be given to political parties that have intentions of using them after they have paid for it. But she won’t specifically compose songs for them.

“I won’t accept anything to compose a song for any political party. I know my mission clearly and I will stand by it.

“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,” Philipa Baafi said in an interview with Graphic Showbiz.

She also denied composing ‘Go Higher’ for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) during the 2008 general elections.

“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.

“I don’t do songs for political parties. I sing on realities, about God and positivity and that is why my songs usually catch people’s attention,” Philipa Baafi clarified.
