The Ghanaian dancehall artiste in series of tweets criticized his colleagues for refusing to fight the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) after the body enforced a ban on them from endorsing and advertising alcoholic beverages in the country.
While describing the ban as “nonsense”, Shatta Wale stated that it has become effective because Ghanaian celebrities are childish and lack the balls to confront the FDA.
“Ghanaian musicians only think about awards and not business and moreover they behave like children no wonder FDA sees us a great influence on minors! Poor industry poor mentality!” his tweet Wednesday read.
“Small time dem go ban alcohol for parties and then after they will Ban water too then we will drink urine and our sweat! Nonsense!”
He pooh-poohed the ban and challenged colleagues to wake up and fight the FDA or be ready to face stiffer bans. For him, he has an alternative - prostitution - should the worst happen.
“Small time dem go ban promoters from doing shows in Ghana cuz dem go talk say celebs deh spoil the youths in Ghana... there norrrr ago start do ashawo for quick cash,” he said.
