Hundreds of thousands of music fans choked the streets of the Achimota Market on Sunday, June 23, 2019 after the event was postponed due to a downpour on Saturday, June 22, 2019, as the multi-talented musician Rootikal Swagger together with some top Ghanaian music artistes thrilled them all night with music at the Achimota Sallah Fest.
The full night carnival dubbed, “Achimota Sallah Fest”, was the maiden edition and it brought together hundreds of thousands of entertainment fans and Sallah celebrants as great music personalities took turns on stage to perform hit after hit.
Among the artistes who mounted the stage to thrill fans were Tinny, Ras Kuuku, Obibini, Epixode, Lord Paper, Atom, Tsikago, ImRana, Kojo Luda, Paa Dogo, Kojo Gilchris, CT Baby, Arigenal, Real Bini, Buzy Bwoy, SID, Olas and many more.
The 2019 Achimota Sallah Fest was organized by Sariki Abdul Rashid Domo and Hon. Kwesi Ababio Gyebi in collaboration with 3Tymz Vibration Recordz to climax the Eid-Mubarak celebrations after thirty days of Muslim fasting.
These men believed that the people of Achimota 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.
The event was held under the theme, “Bringing neighbors into dialogue, increasing creativity, offering opportunities for civic pride and improving our general psychological well-being through music”.
