South African schools demand ban on Logan Paul and KSI’s PRIME Hydration drink

Logan Paul KSI PRIME Hydration South African schools ban

South African authorities are worried about Logan Paul and KSI’s PRIME Hydration drink and want it banned from schools. The drink, owned by the world-famous YouTubers, recently became available at Checkers stores. It quickly sold out, creating a high demand among consumers. The National Association of School Governing Bodies (NASGB) believes that the drink can change students’ behavior, so parents should have more control over what their kids bring to school. 

Trends analyst Bronwyn Williams says the drink’s popularity is because it’s hard to find. Young people, especially, want what others see as valuable. As a result, the drink’s price went up to R1,000 on resale sites in the UK and the US. Read more about the controversy surrounding Logan Paul and KSI’s PRIME Hydration drink in South Africa.

Parents have noticed changes in their children’s behavior after drinking PRIME Hydration, but it’s unclear what these changes are. The association thinks these changes could negatively affect the school environment and discipline.

After the NASGB’s call for a ban, many parents lined up outside Checkers stores hoping to buy the drink. It was initially priced low, making it affordable for excited consumers. However, the drink reportedly sold out quickly, increasing demand and cost.

Debate around the PRIME Hydration controversy in South Africa

The NASGB’s request to ban PRIME Hydration in schools has caused considerable discussion across the country. Supporters believe that parents should have more control over what their kids drink at school. They think energy drinks can make students misbehave, affecting their learning and well-being.

However, some people think the association’s worries might not be accurate or exaggerated. They argue that if people consume energy drinks responsibly, learn about the effects, drink in moderation, and there won’t be any problems.

The debate about PRIME Hydration shows that many young people in South Africa and worldwide like to show off by buying expensive things.
