The Begum festival commemorates the flight of Naiul-Lah Mohammed from Mecca into exile in Medina. Events begin with processions from neighbouring villages and by nightfall villagers gather at the Chiefs Palace with lighted torches.

The ceremony illuminates the streets and there is dancing and drumming into the early hours of the morning. Celebrated in Dagbon, Gonja, Mamprusi and Nanumba. Which is in the Northern Region, this event takes place in January.

  1. I have been browsing online more than 3 hours nowadays, but I by no means discovered any interesting article like yours. It is lovely value sufficient for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will probably be much more useful than ever before.
