A Ghanaian actress has been jailed for “domestic violence” – after posting an Instagram photo posing nude with her near-naked son.
Rosamond Brown, better known as Akupam Polo, posed nude while posing and shaking hands with her confused-looking son as a bizarre celebration of her seventh birthday last June.
While Polu’s hair covered her breasts and her son wore minimalist underwear, the “tribute” sparked outrage in Ghana – and the actress quickly removed it and made a tearful apology The BBC noted.
The outlet said he was jailed on Friday for three months after being found guilty of publishing obscene material, domestic violence and undermining the privacy and integrity of another person.
“Did he ask for the child’s permission before posting the said picture?” Did he respect the right of the child? No, he did not, ”said the newspaper Christofiana Caine, according to the agency Newsflash.
The judge told the court, “The harsh punishment will serve as a deterrent.”
Child rights International, a non-governmental organization, was also pushed for its prosecution, the BBC noted.
Polo Posts photos regularly Her son as well as rapper Cardi B, whom she met once in 2019 and her Instagram bio claim that she is a “Spirit Twin Sis”.
The “WAP” star was one of many to question the harsh punishment that would see a mother separate from her son while in prison.
“I have seen many Americans doing photoshoots like this. Even my style is not. I don’t think she was being more sexual for the natural idea, ” Cardi B tweeted She is called “twine” when she is “taken”.
“I think prison is a bit harsh.” Perhaps social media probation or community service, ”Starr argued.
