I went back to school at age 40 and bagged first class – Philipa Baafi

Gospel singer Philipa Baafi has given thanks to God for guiding her through her academic journey with greater success and fewer obstacles.

While sharing her story, she said that her parents had died by the time she got to Senior High School (SHS). The gospel artiste added that things became complicated for her in life, but she remained steadfast in her studies.


The ‘Go Higher’ hitmaker indicated that, due to her predicament, she could not further her education after SHS.

Philipa mentioned that she enrolled in a tertiary medical programme (Physician Assistant) after earning money from music, and despite being older than forty, she graduated with honours.


“When I was in elementary school, my parents passed away. When I started SHS, my mother also passed away. Even though I excelled academically, I found it difficult. In addition to feeling called to pursue music, I was passionate about working in medicine.


“After graduating from high school, I spent some time at home because I was going through a difficult time following my parents’ deaths. Returning to school after forty was not a simple task. However, with God’s help, I successfully finished my postsecondary education with first-class honours,” she stated in a video that Zion posted.
