Addressing all guests and the media persons at the launch Nii Futah, chief of Nima highlighted the importance of the Ramadan saying it is a month where Muslims all over the world are expected to be generous to others.
“The month of Ramadan is a remarkable month throughout the history of Islam, a month where rewards and alms are doubled”. “Generosity and giving are attributes that Allah likes for Muslims since Allah’s and Prophet’s generosity to their people also multiplies in the Ramadan period”. “We should be most active in spending our wealth to help those who are less fortunate in our society.
“Let us all in this period of Ramadan keep in mind, the saying of ‘Ubaid Ibn ‘Umair, rahimahu Allah, “On the Day of Judgment people will be gathered as hungry as they have ever been and as thirsty as they have ever been and as naked as they have ever been. Then, he who has fed others for the sake of Allah, ‘azza wa jalla, Allah will feed him till he is full”.
VVIP believes that the people of Nima contributed immensely towards their success and that there is the need for them to also come out with events such as Sallah fest as a means of giving back to the community.
“This is our personal contribution to the community, which has made us who we are today and we as a group see this as an opportunity to invite to our community the Crème de la crème on the Ghanaian music scene to help us say thank you to the very people who made us and have supported us all this while in our career” says VVIP.
