Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar known popularly as Cardi B, has reacted to news of Akuapem Poloo’s jail sentence.
Akuapem Poloo has been given a 90-day sentence in prison after she pleaded guilty to the publication of obscene material, and two counts of engaging in domestic violence.
The complainant in the case was Bright Appiah, who is the Director of Child Rights International Ghana.
He petitioned the police after the photo went viral on social media, and the matter was referred to the Domestic Violence and Victims Support Unit (DOVVSU).
She was handed her sentence on Friday, April 16, 2021, by an Accra circuit court.
Responding to a tweet by Afromusic_TV, Cardi b tweeted that a social media probation or community service would have been a more reasonable punishment.
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. https://t.co/ncdwvggvFK
