Rufftown Records signee, Wendy Shay has said that she’s taking the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA), and the Gaming Commission to the Human Rights court.
This is coming after a new directive from the Gaming Commission that bans Ghanaian celebrities from endorsing sports betting.
A new press statement from the Gaming Commission says “Operators shall not use celebrities in their advertisements to entice the general public to gamble,”.
To ensure the new guideline is followed all advertisement must be approved by the commission to help protect not only underage persons but “the interests of punters, customers and stakeholders,” the statement read.
Wendy Shay taking to Twitter revealed that this new directive is unfair because serving as brand ambassadors is also a means by which they also make money.
She called on fellow celebrities to come together and fight against these strict rules from authorities.
