Wendy Shay to Sue FDA and Gaming Commission

Ghanaian songstress, Wendy Shay, has indicated her intentions to take the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) and the Gaming Commission of Ghana to a human rights court.

The artiste who is signed under RuffTown Records, stated that she wants to sue the two institutions for banning the use of celebrities in advertisements and promotions for alcoholic drinks. She also made her wrath towards the Gaming Commission known due to the fact that they had also banned the use of celebrities as ambassadors for betting companies.

According to her, celebrities deserve better than the treatment they are getting from these institutions.

Wendy Shay took to twitter to urge her fellow celebrities to join her in the fight.

“GH Celebs can we put our differences aside and fight the system?? I guess we don’t know how powerful we are …”

“Well I’m taking the FDA and Gaming Commission to the Human Rights Court. Celebs are also Ghanaians and deserve better !! Ghana wake Up !!”

The songstress who is known for her “Uber Driver” song among other hit records, made the post after the Ghana Gaming Commission banned betting companies from using celebrities in their advertisement or as ambassadors.

The Gaming Commission has explained that its decision stems from the fact that an increasing number of celebrities are beginning to endorse betting companies – an action many say could lure their young fans into unbridled gambling.

Wendy Shay is however of the view that the decision by the Commission primarily targets the incomes of celebrities.
