Akuapem Poloo receives criticisms
The post by Akuapem Poloo, however, has caused missed reactions on social media. While some support the actress, others were of the view that the development was unacceptable.
The actress has since urged Ghanaian to acknowledge the message that accompanies the picture.
“This is a powerful message; I want Ghanaians to be talking about and not my nude picture. What is wrong with a nude picture? My son has seen my nakedness all these years so what is wrong with if I am naked in front of him now?” she asked.
