The “Shay On You“ singer yesterday claimed in her instagram handle she had lost a deal worth 1000s‘ of dollars with a foreign alcohol company, because in Ghana Celebrities can’t advertise for alcoholic beverages according to the FDA.
FDA replied with a Facebook post, stating that “The guidelines on the advertisement of food states clearly that no well-known personality or professional shall be used in alcoholic beverage advertisement”.
The post further stated “The FDA is not trying to take food away from your mouth but rather trying to protect the young ones who idolise you from the abuse of alcohol. On the other hand, we can collaborate with you to use your influence to educate the youth against alcohol abuse”.
However, the response didn’t go well with the “Uber Driver” singer and she Instagram page, posted a photo of herself and she wrote “FDA thx for de reply.U endorse alcohol n make cash by approving it to be sold, but you claim to protect children when a celeb wants to make money by advertising it?UNFAIR!
