Multiple award-winning Ghanaian dancehall star, Charles Nii Armah Mensah Jnr, famed as Shatta Wale has spoken about a new directive affecting celebs in Ghana.
In a new video sighted by YEN.com.gh on social media, Shatta Wale was seen relaxing in the comfort of his bedroom and was addressing an issue involving Ghana's Gaming Commission and celebs.
According to Shatta Wale, the directive from the Gaming Commission to prevent celebs from advertising for betting companies was going to affect a lot of industry players.
He indicated that when the Food and Drugs Authority issued a similar directive to prevent celebs from advertising for alcoholic beverage and drink companies, many people did not rise up against the decision.
He however added that this new directive from the Gaming Commission was going to affect a lot of celebs and asked them to rally under one voice to challenge the move.
Shatta Wale added that there were times that when he heard of some decisions taken by the leaders, he wondered what their motives were.
He said this new directive would affect almost all industry players since they all resorted to working with betting companies after they were barred from working with alcohol companies.
Meanwhile, Ghanaian actress and social media goddess, Andrea Owusu, popularly known as Efia Odo, has caused a stir with her new photo on social media which saw her with a man.
