The battle line between Wendy Shay and the Ghana Food and Drugs Authority has been drawn.
Wendy Shay called out the quality assurance institution to lift the ban that prevents celebrities from serving as brand ambassadors for alcoholic beverages.
The FDA replied to the ‘Uber Driver’ hitmaker schooling her on the reasons why they ban celebrities from endorsing alcoholic beverages.
In their reply, they wrote:
“Dear Wendy Shay Official,
The guidelines on the advertisement of food state clearly that no well-known personality or professional shall be used in alcoholic beverage advertisements.
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.
FDA….Your Well-being, Our Priority.”
Well, Wendy Shay has hit back at them again. In a new social media post, she said:
“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! If you truly care abt the kids and not the money then why approve it in the first place?FDA alone wan chop ..GH wake up!”
