The boss of Rufftown Records, Ricky Nana Agyeman aka Bullet is pissed off over some laws preventing musicians/celebrities from endorsing alcoholic beverages and betting companies in Ghana.
Bullet in an Instagram post described these laws as stringent/heart-wrenching laws which are gradually crippling record labels in Ghana and added a prediction that there will be no record label in Ghana in a year or two due to these laws.
According to Bullet, those in government keep goofing with laws and if things do not change, record labels in Ghana won’t survive in a few years to come.
Perhaps, Bullet should write a 101-page document petitioning the Ghana Government to scrap off these laws restricting celebrities and musicians from endorsing alcoholic beverages and betting companies. We think that’ll work.
I’m sure there is a new law by the Gaming Commission banning Ghanaian celebrities and musicians from endorsing betting companies judging from Bullet’s Instagram post.
Bullet who thinks the government is killing the creative industry with these stringent/heart-wrenching laws took to Instagram and wrote;
“Ghana is not a place to operate a record label business and this is very sad.
Record labels do not make money from just shows where their artistes are billed to perform, majority of the money comes from endorsement deals.
You people are always goofing with your laws.
Do you guys have any idea of the devastasting effects of covid-19 on the creative arts.#theydontcareaboutthecreativearts.”
Can someone tell Bullet that those who make these stringent/heart-wrenching laws aren’t on Instagram and that they are in Parliament?
