Today, Ghanaians were met with the sad news of the imprisonment of a Ghanaian actress and social media sensation, Rosemond Brown, popularly known as Akuapem Pooloo. The mother of one was sentenced to 90 days imprisonment after months of a legal battle in court.
Although a lot of social media users have expressed that they had not been too enthused about the way of life of the young socialite, they are not happy with her incarceration at all.
Akuapem Pooloo was arrested months ago for sharing a nude picture of herself in front of her young son. She proceeded to share the picture on social media to wish her son a happy birthday. The picture generated several backlash from Ghanaians. Several people called her irresponsible for sharing such a picture, and particularly for going naked before the young boy.
The decision of the court to imprison Pooloo has received a number of criticisms from social media users, but the question is what exactly does the law say. According to the laws of Ghana, indecent exposure is an offense and can attract years of imprisonment.
The laws are also against anyone publishing any pictures or publicly displaying nude pictures. What Akuapem Pooloo did was therefore supposed to be an offense punishable by the laws of Ghana. The laws are also against the display of any pornographic materials in the country.
The incarceration of the 31 year old, although very sad and unfortunate, is going to be a warning sign to all slay queens and socialites who might have decided to do same for the purpose of having social media trends.
