Following the Kalyppo buzz and massive public consumption, Chief of Staff, Julius Debrah has warned Ghanaians not to take the fruit juice since its sugar content is high and unhealthy for the human body.
He, however, opined that calypso fruit juice is meant for kids to enhance their development and not adults.
“I am pleading with you that you the adults here if you take Kalyppo, the sugar content can leave you with some sickness so please don’t take it,” Mr. Debrah told NDC supporters at Wenchi in the Brong Ahafo region where he is campaigning for President John Mahama ahead of the December polls.
The Kalyppo craze started when a photo of the New Patriotic Party flagbearer Nana Akufo-Addo was seen sipping the drink during a campaign.
Subsequently, the buzz went viral on social media leading to what is now known as #KalyppoChallenge.
