Barely twenty-four hours after an Accra Circuit Court sentenced Akuapem Poloo to 90 days in prison for sharing a lewd photo she took with her son on social media, American rapper Cardi B has shared her thoughts on the development as she has described the punishment for her ‘twin sister’ as “a bit harsh”.

Responding to a social media post which requested her opinion on the jail term, Cardi B who became fond of Akuapem Poloo in December 2019 said: “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.”

On June 30, 2020, Akuapem Poloo posted a naked photo of herself and her son to mark his seventh birthday. She received severe backlash from the public over the photo, forcing her to apologise in a video.

But Child Right International Ghana through its director, Bright Appiah filed a complaint at the Ghana Police Service to have her investigated and punished for posting the pictures.

The case was referred to the Domestic Violence and Victims Support Unit (DOVVSU) and subsequently to court.

In court, Poloo initially pleaded not guilty but changed her plea to guilty which earned her a conviction.
