Gospel singer Philipa Baafi is now a qualified physician assistant, becoming one of the few Ghanaian musicians with a career in the medical field.
The Go High singer has added another milestone to her list of achievements. She had to put her music career on hold to achieve her lifelong dream.
Baafi, who was rumored to have ended her singing career due to marriage and childbirth, debunked the claims in March 2021 when she told Kingdom FM that she had enrolled in medical school, Ameyaw Debrah reported.
