Ghana Food And Drugs Board has banned popular TV cum radio presenter Kwame Dzokoto from starring in any alcoholic beverage advert.
The “Edziban” host in an interview with Sammy Flex on Pluzz FM discussing the content of TV commercials made the revelation.
“I must tell you I have been banned by the Food and Drugs Board not to do any liquor advertisement again”.
He said the failure to see him in more TV commercials is as a result of the ban. According to the General Manager of Pluzz Fm, Food and Drugs Board says majority of his fans are kids and by doing more commercials for alcoholic beverages, it will have negative effects on them.
“They say I have kids who are my followers and I will teach kids how to drink and because of that they should seize me out of job.
“I wanted to test the law but errm.. I also… for sure it’s a positive thing but then …I think I don’t like this litigation thing so I decided to let it go.”
