Ghanaian actress and socialite, Rosemond Alade Brown also known as Akuapem Poloo who recently spent a short time in prison due to an obscene photo she took with her son says she is serious about her campaign against nudity.
Speaking to Citi News, she said she has realized that posting nude photos on social media could be against the law hence her stance against it.
Having been granted bail after getting a 90-day jail term for publishing a photo of herself posing naked in front of her son, she urged the public to refrain from emulating her deed.
She was found guilty of publishing obscene material and violating the integrity and dignity of her seven-year-old son by a court in Accra last week and duly sentenced, but her lawyers managed to secure a GHS80,000 bail for her, pending the determination of an appeal filed by her counsel against the sentence.
She said she was ignorant that her action will take her to jail adding that the past year has taught her a serious lesson.
She indicated that prior to her sentence, she has not posted anything nude on social media, something she believes demonstrates her commitment to a ‘Stop Nudity’ campaign.
“I least expected that I will be jailed for 90 days. I didn’t know that what I did could take me to prison. [When I was sentenced] I was so down, I was depressed and could not see anything. Since 30th June 2020, my son’s birthday, when I posted that photo, I have not posted anything nude [on social media]. It’s been a year now, so I am very serious about stopping nudity,” she said.
“I want to urge my colleagues and young people too to desist from such an act, especially all forms of nudity. We need to put a stop to it. It is not good,” she added while addressing pressmen.
