Ghanaian actress Rosemond Brown, better known as Akuapem Poloo, has been sentenced to jailed for posing naked in front of her son.
She was sentenced to three months in prison by an Accra Circuit Court over the publication of obscene material and domestic violence.
The actress was sentenced for her Instagram post where she went naked while posing with her seven-year-old son in June, last year.
According to Akuapem Poloo at that time, every post she makes on her social media page is to send a message since she is an artiste and they are also expressions of her artistic personality.
Therefore, she said the picture that quickly went viral with her son, was an artistic expression of motherhood and a message to those who do not respect women and their mothers.

She has now been sentenced to 90 days in jail, the actress pleaded for mercy, to no avail.
“Mummy please, Mummy, I beg you, Mummy please,” she reportedly said to the judge.
Akuapem’s lawyer, Mr Andy Vortia, prayed for a more lenient sentence but the court held that a harsh sentence must be passed to serve as a deterrent to others.
The actress was convicted on her own plea, after she had pleaded guilty to three counts of publication of obscene materials, engaging in domestic violence namely a conduct that in any way undermined another person’s privacy or integrity, and engaging in domestic violence namely conduct that in any way detracted or was likely to detract from another person’s dignity and worth as a human being.
