Social media influencers are campaigning for actress Rosemond Brown popularly known as Akuapem Poloo to be freed or be given a less harsh punishment.
With the hashtag ‘#FreeAkuapemPoloo’, social media users such as Sarkodie, Efya, Hajia For Real, Akumaa Mama Zimbi and other Ghanaians are flooding social media with alternative punishment for the actress.
This followed the conviction of the popular actress Akwapem Poloo by the Circuit Court over naked pictures with her son on Wednesday.
Akuampem Poloo risks serving jail time of up to three years and in addition pay a fine not exceeding ¢6,000 on, Friday, April 16, when the Accra Circuit Court announces the punishment it intends to hand her for publication of obscene materials and engaging in domestic violence.
After months of court proceedings, she has been remanded into custody to undergo a pregnancy test before her sentencing.
Subsequently, on Wednesday, the actress pleaded guilty to all three charges and was convicted on her own plea by the court presided over by Christina Cann.
Social media users have set in motion a campaign asking that she is freed.

I think it’s a little harsh to separate a child from the mum just because of pictures taken … would want to plead with the law to pardon our sister 🙏🏾 #FreeAkuapemPoloo— Sarkodie (@sarkodie) April 15, 2021
You don’t have to like Akuapem Poloo or her antics, and trust me as someone who’s suffered because of the many hurtful accusations she’s leveled against me, I completely understand your reservations.— miss forson (@lydiaforson) April 15, 2021

Mind you Akuapem Poloo was not arrested just because she posted the pic on ig, but because of the minor involved. It’s a form of abuse. And sexual abuse is SEXUAL ABUSE be it in any form. So just plead for her freedom and stop these unnecessary comparisons #FreeAkuapemPoloo pic.twitter.com/o4QUw3HLEv— Gangst ☆ ✭ PRO (@Snitchy_) April 14, 2021
