Wendy Shay, the Ruff Town Record’s signed artist, laments over losing a deal worth thousands of dollars. This deal was from a foreign alcohol company, according to Wendy. The issue is that celebrities are banned from advertising for alcoholic beverages in Ghana, as passed by the ghana Food and Drugs Authority, FDA. However, the Stevie Wonder hits-maker said she was not aware of this ban. The ban has been placed by the FDA since 2015.
The Food and Drugs Authority (FDA), in 2015, placed a ban on celebrities from advertising alcoholic beverages in adherence to a World Health Organization (WHO) policy.
Even though this ban has been placed since 2015, Wendy Shay said that she is not aware. She calls for the immediate lifting of the ban. She sees this as ’Small food we go chop too u wan take 4rm our mouth .’ She is also calling on her fellow celebrities to wake up.
