Seth Kwame is a Ghanaian comedian, actor and politician. He is the host to the Edziban show on TV3; which explores Ghanaian food joints and cuisines. The comic actor who reveals the reason why he is out of the media is the ban on celebrities to endorse alcoholic beverages by the Fodd and Drugs Authority (FDA).

” I decided to leave the media since no one is speaking for us. Although I made a lot of money from advertising alcoholic beverages, I just decided to stop this media thing and try my hands at a different thing.

“If no one is fighting for us what’s the point in still being in the media, ” he told Agyemang Prempeh on Power FM last Saturday, January 18.

” Since no lawyer is interested in fighting for celebrities to endorse alcoholic beverages I am taking it upon myself to persue law and deal with such issues

” Who determines who a celebrity is? Would FDA say Maame Dokono (Grace Omaboe) or Mac Jordan Amartey should be charged for advertising alcoholic beverages when indeed those under 18 years might not even know them?

” I think the law must be tested, anyone just takes a decision and it is final. Trust me I will be contesting FDA on their decision , ” he said.

Kwame Dzokoto questioned why it seemed acceptable for young people to get involve in betting but celebrities cannot advertise alcoholic drinks.

” We have a lot of betting companies in Ghana and our children are going wayward but authorities will not see this and will rather ban celebrities from endorsing alcoholic beverages, ” he added.
