The trending story all week has been the nude photo saga that has plagued actress Akuapem Poloo.
In a case that has since been ruled upon today by an Accra Circuit court, Poloo has been sentenced to a 90 day jail term on the account of her own plea of guilt to three charges; publication of obscene materials and engaging in domestic violence.
However prior to this judgement, some celebrities including Sarkodie, Stonebwoy, Lydia Forson and among others had taken to social media to ask the court to temper justice with mercy and free Akuapem Poloo in what became a top trending, #FreeAkuapemPoloo.
But GhOne journalist in a bid to make clear the #FreeAkuapemPoloo movement took to her twitter handle to ask, if people wanted Poloo freed despite not being sentenced or they wanted leniency from the court?
Her post however seemed not to have gone down well with ace rapper and Hiplife pioneer, Reggie Rockstone who in a sharp and swift rebuttal scolded Serwaa, asking her in the process, “Do you have a child”.
This is generating a lot of traction on twitter with many taking to different sides to defend and chastise both sides in equal measure. You can join the convo on the TL.
when the person has not yet been sentenced???Are we praying for the court to be "LENIENT" or are we asking that she should be "freed" ?????? Just asking…🚶🏾♂️
