This follows the directive from the Ghana Gaming Commission to ban celebrities from endorsing Betting companies.
Wendy Shay led the charge by stating she was taking the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) and the Gaming Commission of Ghana to the human rights court since they were taking food out of her mouth.
GH Celebs can we put our differences aside and fight the system?? I guess we don’t know how powerful we are…Well I’m taking the FDA and Gaming commission to the Human Rights Court. Celebs are also Ghanaians and deserve better!! Ghana wake Up!!
Her comments have led to other celebrities discussing the ban on Social Media.
Singer Darkovibes questioned why Artists were supposed to pay tax when they were being barred from endorsing certain brands.
Ghanaian celebrities cannot be ambassadors for Alcoholic brands and now betting companies? Plus they want to take taxes from us? Eb3 easy! Worbaana Paawdaaa!
Rapper Kwesi Arthur agreed with Darkovibes’ comments on twitter.
He went further to state children were already buying alcohol in the country whiles authorities assume celebrities are the problem.
10 year olds sef fit buy alcohol in this country from time and you think we be the problem???? Lol
Shatta Wale also delved into the ban, stating although he will not be directly affected by the bans, he felt sorry for celebrities who will be hit financially by the ban.
However, not all celebrities are in support, as actress Ama K Abebrese in a post, wondered why Ghanaian celebrities will fight to get paid to endorse alcohol and betting and tag it as Human Rights whiles comparing it to the End Sars protests.
