Contemporary gospel singer, Nacee, has called on the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) to reconsider its ban on Ghanaian celebrities from endorsing alcoholic beverages.
According to Nacee, it is discriminatory and senseless to allow their foreign counterparts in the country to consume alcoholic beverages while Ghanaians are prohibited from doing so.
As a guest on UTV’s United Showbiz show, the ‘Aseda’ hitmaker lamented Ghanaians’ love for foreigners at the expense of their own country.
Nacee justified her position by saying that it would be pointless to prevent well-known figures in the country from promoting alcohol, because even if lesser-known people were forced to advertise, they would become popular in the long run.
Regularly posting photos and videos of people makes them popular. No one knew about Michael Power in Ghana until Guinness launched its advertisements.
If we introduce an ordinary person into advertising and continue to run these ads, at some point, in a few months, they will become so popular that they may no longer be able to buy food on the side of the road.“It is surprising that we do not allow our local celebrities to advertise, while our foreign counterparts do. It is good to regulate everything we do, but it should not be discriminatory.
We love foreigners more than ourselves… it doesn’t make sense. Let’s stop starving by offering good deals to foreigners,” she said.Watch the video below;
