Celebrated Ghanaian rapper, Michael Owusu Addo, known in showbiz as Sarkodie, is pleading with the court to pardon social media influencer, Akuapem Poloo, after she was convicted for publicising nude photos she took of herself and her son.
Akuapem Poloo, known in private life as Rosemond Brown, was on Wednesday, April 14, 2021, convicted by an Accra Circuit Court presided over by Mrs. Christiana Cann for posting the nude photos on social media in June last year.
She has been remanded into custody after the court deferred her sentencing to Friday, April 16, 2021.
The court deferred the sentencing to enable Akuapem Poloo to undergo a pregnancy test in compliance with the law.
Legal experts say she could serve a maximum jail term of three years or be fined for the offence.
Meanwhile, some people, including rapper Sarkodie, think it will be unfair to jail Akuapem Poloo “just because of pictures taken.”
He, therefore, pleaded with the court to pardon her, so she does not get separated from her seven-year-old son.
“I think it’s a little harsh to separate a child from the mum just because of pictures taken… [I] would want to plead with the law to pardon our sister,” he wrote on Twitter.
