Popular American rapper, Cardi B has reacted to the Accra Circuit Court sentencing Ghanaian actress Akuapem Poloo to three months imprisonment.
The actress and social media personality has been sentenced to three months imprisonment for posing a nude picture with her son.
Known in real life as Rosemond Brown, Akuapem Poloo was on Wednesday convicted on her own plea by the Circuit Court in Accra after pleading guilty to three charges.
She was charged with the publication of nude pictures with her seven-year-old son. She changed her not guilty plea to guilty before being convicted.
The court presided over by Her Honour Christina court deferred her sentencing to today, April 16 2021, for her to undergo a pregnancy test to ensure she was not pregnant before her sentencing is passed.
Before her sentencing, the presiding judge confirmed that the actress was not pregnant after her test came out negative.
The pregnancy test ordered by the court is a requirement by law to ensure that, before a woman who pleaded guilty in court is sentenced, the court should know her status.
She was therefore remanded into custody for the prosecution to take her to any Government hospital to conduct the pregnancy test and produce the results today.
But reacting to the issue, Cardi B believes the jail sentence from the court is a bit harsh rather Akuapem Poloo could have been made to engage in community service or any other punishment than a jail sentence.
“I seen a lot of Americans do photoshoots like that .Even tho is not my style I don’t think she was going for sexual more going the natural idea.I think jail is a bit harsh .Maybe social media probation or community service”, Cardi B tweeted.
