Disputable dancehall performer Shatta Wale has propelled a remarkable tirade on twitter following the Food and Drugs Authority’s (FDA) mandate that precludes Ghanaian superstars from promoting alcoholic items in the nation.
Shatta Wale portrayed the request as vexatious, unjustifiable and one that offers undue bit of leeway to their outside partners.

FDA later disallows Ghanaian big names from the deal and acquisition of liquor in the nation.
‘Little league dem go boycott liquor for gatherings and afterward after they will boycott water too then we wil drink pee and our sweat!!!! Jabber !!!!’ Shatta Wale posted.
In any case, the artiste in a progression of tweets censured industry watchers for not facing the FDA, demanding that the Authority had no forces to issue such a mandate.
“Ghanaian artists just consider grants and not business and increasingly over they act like kids no big surprise FDA sees us an extraordinary impact to minors! Poor industry poor attitude!” his tweet read.
Restriction on famous people
Around five years back, the FDA made it realized that famous people couldn’t publicize alcoholic items. It clarified that the boycott is an adherence to a World Health Organization (WHO) strategy and endeavors to guarantee that minors are shielded from being baited into liquor addiction.
Kofi Essel, Head of Industry Support Services Department of the FDA in a meeting said his outfit can’t lift the prohibition on mainstream figures embracing mixed refreshments.
He told Graphic Showbiz the FDA would not permit any famous figure to contrarily impact the young. He rather asked that VIPs should bolster the move as opposed to approaching the position to repeal its choice on the premise that their wages had decreased because of the boycott.
“Would you be able to envision somebody like Shatta Wale or John Dumelo supporting mixed drinks for their fans who are presumably beneath 18? What will they be letting them know? The utilization of liquor is as genuine as weapons, and I would prefer to argue that big names bolster the reason,” he said.
“Notable people can possibly impact their adherents who are not legitimately allowed to have liquor or use liquor. In perspective on that rules have been set to manage activities of mixed refreshment organizations, including ad of their items and this is the explanation notable people are not permitted to embrace the items.”
Small time dem go Ban alcohol for parties and then after they will Ban water too then we wil drink Urine and our sweat !!!! Nonsense !!!!
