Dancehall artiste Shatta Wale is not relenting on his efforts to get the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) to lift the ban placed on celebrities, preventing them from advertising for alcoholic brands.
In his opinion, lifting the ban will rather be beneficial than keeping it in force.
Speaking in an interview with MzGee, Shatta Wale mentioned the fact that Nigerian celebrities are permitted to advertise alcoholic products does not mean that Ghanaian celebrities will also be given the mandate to do the same.
Again in an interview on Onua FM, he further enforced his stance on wanting the ban lifted, saying:
“The decision [FDA has] taken will affect not only the celebrities,” but business people too who have invested a lot of money into the production of alcoholic beverages will also be affected.
“Don’t say me, Shatta Wale I will let some small boy in Nima drink alcohol,” he stressed.
