US rapper Cardi B has fumed at judge Christina Cann for jailing Ghanaian actress Rosemond Alade Brown, popularly known as Akuapem Poloo.

Known in private life as Rosemond Alade Brown, Poloo was convicted on her own plea having posted her nude photos with her son on social media.

Cardi B, who happens to be a friend of Akuapem Poloo courtesy her recent visit to Ghana in the Year of Return, said the three-month jail term is a bit harsh.

The facts as narrated by the prosecution, led by Chief Inspector Agartha Asantewaa, were that the complainant, Bright K. Appiah, director of Child Rights International Ghana, had petitioned the director-general of CID about a nude photo posted on Instagram by Akwapem Poloo that had gone viral.

On June 30 this year, the prosecution said Rosemond celebrated her son’s seventh birthday and she took her nude pictures together with her son who was also half-naked and posted same on her Instagram page which went viral on social media.

The pictures attracted comments, adding that the behaviour of the accused person was likely to detract from the dignity of her seven-year-old son among others.

The prosecution said the complainant petitioned the director-general CID and the matter was referred to the Domestic Violence and Victims Support Unit (DOVVSU).

Rosemond, the prosecution said, was arrested and in her caution statement, admitted posting the nude picture with her son unintentionally.

A write up accompanying the picture read: “I am naked in front of you because this is how naked I was giving birth to you, so in case you find me lying somewhere don’t pass by but see me as your mom who brought you to life.”

The prosecution held that Rosemond deliberately posted the nude picture together with her son.
