The award winning Ghanaian hiplife group, VVIP, who feted indigenes of Nima and its environs, in collaboration with EIB Network’s Kasapa FM entertained Muslim celebrants with an array of activities to give the people in the Nima and Mamobi communities a good time, at this year’s ‘SallahFest’.
The event which was held off the Nima highway as part of activities marking the Eid al-Fitr celebrations fed about 8,000 people in the Nima, Maamobi and Newtown communities with assorted food and drinks.
On the eve of the occasion, large numbers of Muslims lined up their mats on the Nima highway to offer prayers to Allah before breaking into the celebration.
The feeding was closely followed by the Muslim traditional way of celebrating the Sallah, which included traditional drumming and dancing and the chiefs of Nima riding horses in a unique fashion.
The VVIP group thrilled thousands of music fans, with electrifying performance.
There were equally exciting and good performances by High Grade Family CEO, Samini, Kofi kinaata, Tinny, King of the Street, Kwaw Kese, Jupitar, Praye and the Adabraka Boyz – 5Five.
Others included Atom, D Black, Dancehall Diva- Ebony Reigns, Guru and over 20 up and coming artistes.
Kasapa FM’s IBK, Kwame B and Gatuso to the Power 7 were stupendous with their mcing.
