The Nima You should Know!
This is how colourful the people of Nima, a predominantly muslim community in Ghana celebrated the Ramadan Mubarak festivities. The best of traditional Africa fashion were on display. Food and Music were the order of the day in this lively community. Nima is one of the communities many people hold erroneous perception about. People who have not even visited Nima think it is a hub for criminals and many other social vices. But a visit to the community reveals you to freedom of expression, respect for authority and the free will to explore talent. Nima has the best of Local African dishes like TZ, Tubani, + many more! The Nima market is one of the busiest markets in Ghana.
The community is also filled with religious and academic scholars. Some of the amazing crop of young artists in Accra can be located at Nima. The Nima Muhinmanchi Art organization has been a platform for training many young people who want to be artists. Through accradotalt's CHALE WOTE Street Art Festival, Some of the members of the group have been the brains behind the graffiti murals inside the Old Kingsway Building in James Town. And they are going to be at #ChaleWote2014 on August 23 & 24.
WE LOVE NIMA!
