Ghanaian actress Akuapem Poloo will go to prison for nude photo

A Ghanaian actress will go to prison for posing nude in an artistic photo with her son on his 7th birthday, according to reports.

After losing her appeal Wednesday, Rosemond Brown — known professionally as Akuapem Poloo — wrote on Instagram: “SON I LOVE YOU AND GOD IS WITH YOU ALWAYS YOU KNOW … BE GOOD TILL MUMMY COMES BACK …GOD IS IN CONTROL ALWAYS.”

Poloo, 32, posted a snap of herself nude while facing her young son on social media in June 2020, prompting Ghana officials to charge her with domestic violence and the posting of obscene material.

“The court is bothered with posting nude photos on social media. There is no doubt that apart from the canker of rape, defilement, physical assault, the publication of obscene materials is on the increase,” Judge Christiana Cann ruled in April, according to the agency Newsflash. “A harsh sentence will serve as a deterrent.”

Poloo was sentenced to a three-month term, but she appealed.

On Wednesday, Justice Ruby Aryeetey of the High Court upheld Cann’s sentence, ruling it wasn’t excessive. “This court will not interfere and the appeal is therefore dismissed,” she said,” according to BBC Pidgin.

Rapper Cardi B was among the celebrities to back the single mom back in April, writing jail was “a bit harsh.”

“I seen a lot of Americans do photoshoots like that,” the singer posted. “I don’t think she was going for sexual more going the natural idea.”
