Ghanaian gospel musician, Philipa Baafi, has released a new song titled ‘Privilege’ which has already started enjoying airplay.
The song begins with powerful instrumentation followed by a strong vocal delivery.
The single with easy lyrics reminds everyone that waking up every morning is not by our own might and strength, but by the Grace of the Almighty God who is the giver of life.
The message talks about the fact that each year begins with millions of people having dreams, visions and activities they want to accomplish but unfortunately, the year ends without most of these dreams coming to pass.
Therefore the song concludes that it is a privilege to be counted among the living.
Philipa, who is also a Physician Assistant (PA), said the song was inspired by an emotional experience she witnessed during her clinicals as part of her program.
She tells a story of how a neonate (less than a month-old baby) was presented with respiratory distress. As a result, the baby was easing on herself.
It was only after oxygen was administered that she was stabilized.
The musician is known for her style of blending the pidgin with Twi but this time, it was the British English that took portions of the song making it unique.
