RuffTown Records signee Wendy Shay has called on the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) to lift the ban on Ghanaian celebrities endorsing alcoholic beverages.
The FDA has taken this position as a measure to curtail the abuse of alcohol by many young Ghanaians who idolize these well known celebrities.
Wendy Shay however see this as a deliberate attempt to prevent celebrities from making extra cash from endorsement of alcoholic beverages.
She took to Instagram to announce that she had lost a juicy deal with a foreign based alcoholic beverage producer.
In lieu of that, she has started a campaign that will make FDA lift the ban on celebrities endorsing alcoholic beverages; and is calling for the support of her colleagues.
Meanwhile in their response, the FDA took to their Facebook page to explain that they are not in to prevent these celebrities from making ends meet; but they are rather interested in protecting the many Ghanaian youth who pick inspiration from them (celebrities).
