Judge reverses Akuapem Poloo’s 90-day jail sentence, fines her GH¢12,000

Social media trends cant be dissected without taking a look at the Court of Appeal fining Akuapem Poloo GH¢12, 000 to overrule her 90-day jail term imposed on her on December 7, 2021.

Actress Rosemond Alade Brown popularly known as Akuapem Poloos’ lawyers, led by Andrew Kudzo Vortia, filed a notice of appeal at the Court of Appeal, challenging the dismissal of her appeal by the High Court for taking a naked picture with her son which she shared on social media.

On December 1, 2021, the High Court presided over by Justice Ruby Aryeetey dismissed her Appeal seeking a non-custodial sentence instead of a custodial sentence ruling, that the 90 days custodial sentence imposed on her by the Circuit Court was not “manifestly excessive” and “harsh” and therefore cannot interfere with that decision.

Gyakie ignoring Yaw Tog at Afrima

Songstress Gyakie and rapper Yaw Tog trended on social media over rumours that the former deliberately ignored a hug from the latter.

In a short video that was widely shared on Twitter, Yaw Tog and Kofi Jamar were seen seated on a couch in the Greenroom when Gyakie walked to them and hugged only Kofi Jamar but reportedly failed to extend the same gesture to Yaw Tog.

The musicians, who received nominations for the 2021 edition of the All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA), were in Nigeria to participate in the event.

Yaw Tog and Gyakie debunked the speculations claiming it wasn’t exactly what happened on that day.
