Biography of Philippa Baafi


In 1999, Philipa came out with her maiden album, Nyame Honhon sane, just when she had completed senior secondary school. In 2002, she came out with her another album, Mogya Nakasa. She followed up Mogya Nakasa with Okyeso Nyame, which was released in February 2004.

Because of Philipa’s fondness for the mirror, which she claimed gave her the true reflection of her image, her close pals have nicknamed her “The Mirror Lady”.

She confided in The Mirror weekly that all her life depended on the mirror and because of that she had no hobby. What she did in her leisure time was to grab a mirror and stare into it as if her survival depended on that crave.

According to Philipa, who started singing at the Bantama Methodist Church in Kumasi, she discovered her potential at the tender age of nine.

At that age, she did not confine singing to her church alone. There were times when she went to other churches in Kumasi and its environs to do some renditions.

She continued singing, this time in a more polished and captivating style, when she entered the St. Monica’s Secondary School at Asante Mampong in 1996. After her SSS programme, she enrolled at the FC Institute of Beauty Therapy to study Physiology and Anatomy.

On completion, she proceeded to Cologne, Germany, to pursue a diploma course in beauty therapy for three months.

According to Philipa, her childhood dream was to become a medical doctor but that ambition was jettisoned very early in her life when she lost both parents in quick succession.

She said that that ambition had been rekindled and that she was working towards achieving the goal of becoming a medical officer. She was hopeful of going back to school, especially after she had received assurances from her husband who had promised to support her to fulfil her childhood dream.

At the moment, Philipa doubles as a musician and a beauty therapist. She has two shops in Kumasi and several assistants who help her in her work.

Philipa was born in Kumasi on May 15, 1980, the first of three children born to Ms Grace Acheampong, a trader, and Mr Akwasi Baafi, who was domiciled in Germany, both of blessed memory. She started school at the Kings International School, before continuing at St Monica’s, where she was the Girls’ Prefect, the President of the Scripture Union and the Science Club.

Philipa is full of gratitude to her aunt, Ms Felicia Acheampong, who took care of her and her two siblings when their parents died. She has gospel divas, Amy Newman of Ghana and Rebecca Malope of South Africa, as her local and international role models, respectively.

She worships at the Calvary Baptist Church at Adabraka in Accra and she is grateful to her numerous fans for their loyalty.
