Grammy award-winning rapper Cardi B, US rapper, has reacted to the sentence of Akuapem Poloo, convicted of a n*de photoshoot with her son in June 2020.
The Circuit Court sitting in Accra had sentenced Poloo to three months in jail over the social media post.
The photo, which attracted criticism, had shown her unclad in front of her son, who was dressed only in underwear. The photoshoot was used to mark the boy’s seventh birthday.
Reacting to the verdict, Cardi B took to Twitter on Saturday 17th April to describe the judge’s decision as overkill.
Noting that she has seen many of such photoshoots in the US, the singer said a social media probation or community service would have sufficed.
I seen a lot of Americans do photoshoots like that .Even tho is not my style I don’t think she was going for s****l more going the natural idea.I think jail is a bit harsh .Maybe social media probation or community service. https://t.co/ncdwvggvFK
