Singer and songwriter Kwame Ayi Kwaw aka Stone Gee says he will be supporting jailed actress Akuapem Poloo’s son through her mother.
According to him, Rosemond Brown’s family will need help, especially her son as she serves her 90 days jail term.
He said it is the responsibility of the creative industry stakeholders to support the upkeep of the child until his mother is released from jail.
“As an artiste and industry stakeholder I have decided to support Akuapem Poloo’s son with ¢500 every month until she is released from jail,” he said.
Stone Gee, who described the three-month jail term handed down to the actress as harsh, said the court should have been considerate since she was a first-time offender and pleaded guilty to the offence.
An Accra Circuit Court last Friday sentenced Akuapem Poloo to 90 days imprisonment after she pleaded guilty to charges of obscenity preferred against her.
She was hauled before the court on charges of publication of obscene materials, engaging in domestic violence, namely conduct that in any way undermines another person’s privacy or integrity and engaging in domestic violence, namely conduct that in any way detracts or is likely to detract from another person’s dignity and worth as a human being.
Prior to her sentencing, some celebrities had started a campaign ‘#freeakuapempoolo’ on social media seeking to get the attention of the judge to acquiesce to their demands for either a lesser punishment or better still forgiveness.
Celebrities such Sakordie, Akumaa Mama Zimbi, Hajia4Real, Efya, DKB, Bridget Otoo, and others were part of the campaign to free Akuapem Poloo.
