A slew of Ghanaian celebrities including heavyweights such as Sarkodie and Wendy Shay were in court Wednesday as they battle to lift an FDA ban on alcohol advertisements.
The Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) has instituted a ban aimed at stopping Ghanaian celebrities from advertising alcohol.
The celebrities are fighting it in court, arguing the ban discriminates against their fundamental human rights.
During the most recent court date, several celebs showed up including Sarkodie, Wendy Shay, Bullet, King Promise and others.
Speaking after proceedings, they argued that the FDA’s ban is discriminating against them as Ghanaians and ‘taking food from their tables.
