Hundreds of Muslims and non-Muslims celebrated Sallafest on the Nima Highway  to mark the end of the month of Ramadan  on Sunday.

The festival, the brainchild of the Nima community, was on the theme, “Sing for Peace”.

This year’s event  was sponsored  by EXP Ghana, event organisers, with support from Chapter O and the Vision In Progress (VIP) music group.

The celebration started with the laying of  of a 600-metre table displayed with food and drinks  prepared by the women of the community.

A number of non-Muslims took part in the meals, a development which signified unity among the people of the community.

There was also the display of culture among the various ethnic groups in the community.

The highest point of the celebration was horse riding, traditional drumming and dancing, music, among others.
Politics was, however, not left out as party colours were displayed amidst cheers from the crowd and party faithful.

Speaking to the Daily Graphic, the Head of Sponsorship and Media of EXP Ghana, Mr Elloeny Amande, expressed joy over the outcome of the event and pledged to continue in the coming years.

He, however, called on the youth to maintain the peace at all times and also abstain from electoral violence.

“Let us use the celebrations today to serve as a wake-up call to maintain peace and order at all times,” he said

The celebration was crowned later in the evening with a chain of performances from musicians such as Bandana, 4 X 4, Sarkodie, Raquel, Iwan, D-Black, D-Cryme, D-Flex, Edem, EL, Ruff and Smooth, among others. The musicians were hosted by VIP.
