In regards to the FDA ban on Ghanian celebrities for endorsing alcoholic beverages, the president of the Creative Art Agency, Mr Mark Okreku Mantey has react saying, “if its about kids, why shouldn’t it be allowed to be shown when the kids are asleep”?
The FDA has banned all Ghanian celebrities from endorsing alcoholic beverages.
The ban according to FDA, is to protect the interests of underage fans of popular personalities because advertising for alcoholic beverages have the tendency of luring the personalities’ underage fans into engaging in alcoholism which is against the law.
Whiles delivering an address on the state of the creative art on Monday morning, Mr Mark has come to the aid of popular personalities, suggesting some safety measures for the FDA as an alternative to the ban.
Mark later has said, “It is not about how kids see alcohol, it is about how we mould our kids from our homes. Akpeteshie is happening but no adverts”.
