Banning celebrities from endorsing alcoholic beverages was a wrong move by government -Edem



Rapper, Edem, has expressed his displeasure at the ban on celebrities from endorsing alcoholic beverages and has asked the relevant authorities to reverse the decision.

According to him, celebrities were making big money through endorsements for alcoholic beverage companies until the ban came into place.

“Nothing is working in the entertainment field and the main problem is because the government has banned alcoholic beverage producers from sponsoring events and also stopped celebrities from endorsing alcoholic beverages which is so wrong.

However, Edem said the ban’s negative impact was not only felt in reduced incomes for celebrities but entertainment events were also suffering.

“These alcoholic beverages played a major role by sponsoring these big events but now there is a ban on it. The decision is so wrong and has to be checked as soon as possible,” he said.

Edem, who is preparing for the third edition of his Edemfest which will come off from Friday, November 1 to 3, said he was putting finishing touches to his upcoming album which should be ready by the end of this year.

The album, according to Edem, would feature some A-list artistes such as Sarkodie and Stonebwoy.
