The musical crew, VVIP, last Saturday fed thousands of people at Nima in Accra, as Muslims celebrated the festival of Eid-al- Fitr to mark the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting.
The event, which preceded the group’s Salafest music show in the evening, saw both kids and adults treated to what qualifies to be one of the longest charity tables in the world.
The trio of Zeal, Prodigal and Reggie Rockstone, displayed some great sense of humility as they spread out serving people with sumptuous meals.
They displayed some incredible level of compassion as they gave all present, a great sala treat, with the delicious meals cooked by women in the community.
According to the group, the essence of the event was to express thanksgiving, and sharing and the significance of a single long table showed oneness and unity.
Zeal explained that it was important to show love to the people especially during this period, where friends and family would gather to celebrate after a long month of fasting.
He said that, it was also vital to give back to society especially kids and the aged by putting smiles on their faces.
He also expressed gratitude to the sponsors including, Indomie, Maggi, Frytol and other corporate entities that supported the event.
The people of Nima also reciprocated the love shown by the group as they were warmly welcomed by the chiefs and showered with praises by the youth in the community.
Later in the night, the streets were packed with thousands of people as they were thrilled by several artistes to climax the sala celebrations.
Fans were treated to good music from VVIP as well as other artistes including 4*4, Stonebwoy, Edem, MzVee, Sarkodie and many others.
VVIP’s outstanding performance was hugely felt as they stood on stage for several hours and supported the other artistes to perform.
