Ghana's VIP feeding some kids of Nima
Award-winning Ghanaian hip life group VIP and some of the crème de la crème of Ghana’s music industry made last Sunday’s Eid-ul-Fitr celebration a memorable one with great musical performances to entertain fans.
They took turns on stage to wow music fans at a show dubbed ‘Sallah Fest 2012’, organised on the Nima main street.  
Thousands of celebrants and music fans in Accra and beyond thronged the streets of Nima to be part of the ‘Sallah Fest’ which was described as one of the biggest street events ever.
 Ahead of the electrifying performances, VIP feted residents of Nima and its environs in the afternoon.
VIP, in collaboration with EXP Ghana, engaged in various activities to give the people in Nima and Mamobi a good time during the celebration.
On Sallah morning, a large number of Muslims lined up on the Nima highway with their mats to offer prayers to Allah before starting the celebration.
The celebration started with a buffet on a table measuring about 600 metres. The buffet fed about 10,000 people from Nima, Maamobi and Newtown.
The feast was accompanied by the Muslim traditional way of celebrating the Sallah, which includes traditional drumming and dancing and the chiefs of Nima riding horses in a very unique fashion.
VIP joined the celebration as the group went on the streets to show love to the Muslim community.  
The day was crowned with a free massive concert in the night hosted by VIP, which was discovered in Nima over a decade ago.
The group thrilled thousand of music fans who came out of their homes to celebrate. It performed its repertoire while music fans sang and danced along.
There were exciting and good performances by BET award winner Sarkodie, Tinny, 4x4, Efya and Iwan.
“Last nyt (night) Nima was crazy; Big ups 2(to) ma (my) big bosses VIP...happy Sallah,” Sarkodie tweeted after the show on Monday afternoon.
