Akpeteshie’, is a local drink produced in Ghana by palm wine tappers with a refined palm wine or sugar cane.

Frankly speaking, the local drink which goes by many names such as VC10, and apio is the national spirit of Ghana and is not professionally bottled or sealed, but instead poured into unlabeled used bottles.

It was recently reported that Captain Planet was set to release a song titled ‘Akpeteshie’ on 20th January 2018 but couldn’t confirm whether he was going to promote the use of ‘Akpeteshie’ in the song or advice people to be careful of over drinking the most popular drink.

However, an information from a close source indicates vigorously that, Captain Planet aims at promoting the excessive intake of ‘Akpeteshie’ since it is a locally made drink rather than warning people on the need to drink it responsibly.

Well, in an exclusive interview on the case concerning the fate of the music with regards to the lyrical content, a representative from the Foods and Drugs Authority (FDA), explained that.

“If truly Captain Planet releases the ‘Akpeteshie’ song and he advocates for the excessive intake of the spirit since he believes it is manufactured in Ghana so people must drink it more so that the producers would make profit, well it’s good to make profit but looking at the complications surrounding excessive drinking, we shall ban the song..I will really be surprised if a role model like Captain Planet would do such a song,” the FDA rep opined.
