Rufftown Records CEO Threatens To Move The Label To Nigeria Over Restrictive Laws On Celebrity Endorsements
Ricky Nana Agyemang, popularly known as Bullet has barked at the seemingly threatening restrictions on celebrity brand endorsement deals in the country.
This comes in the wake of a new move by the Gaming commission to ban all celebrities from endorsing the various betting companies in the country, this move is quite similar to the precedence set by Food and Drugs Authority which has a legal backing blackballing celebrities from publicly endorsing alcoholic beverages.
The owner of Rufftown Records underscores this new initiative is very disheartening and an effort to cripple the creative arts industry as a chunk of the revenue for most industry players comes from brand endorsement deals from these outlets.
He took to social media to fume on the saga. We will keep our eyes on the latest development on this saga for our next post.
