Sensational Fante rapper, Pappy Kojo has made known his view concerning the Akuapem Polo and son nude brouhaha. According to him, he doesn’t see why the citizenry should be irate over a mother and son’s personal life matters. But Ameyaw Debrah and others think it worth it for the country to intervene or pry into such matters.
A few days ago, Ghana’s controversial actress, Rosemond Brown released a nude photo that featured her son to mark the latter’s birthday. This made a lot of waves in the country as it met the disapproval of almost all opinion leaders and views from the entire nation. According to experts, it is an offense to release nude pictures on social media, therefore, the Gender Ministry cautioned the actress while the Child Right International petitioned the police to investigate the matter.
Akuapem Polo removed the picture, apologized, and revealed that she baths with her son, and she did that naked shoot with the son to teach him that she is his mother and wherever he would see her naked, she is still her mother and he must cloth her – unquoted.
Just as the incident seemed dying, Fante Van Damme, Pappy Kojo, after several thoughts on it couldn’t keep his cool than express what he thinks is one of the reasons Ghana is an impasse. He thinks we give much attention to people’s personal lives.
He shared, “lol you want to tell me if I go through all of that pain for 9 months and give birth to my own child and I post a picture like that, you people go bore? Lol no wonder the country still no develop.”
His opinion attracted lots of attention which all took an opposite stance. One that got my attention was fellow blogger Ameyaw Debrah, he replied, “well, if you go through all that pain for 9 months and you kill him, you shouldn’t be arrested either.”
The fact that the child belongs to you doesn’t mean you can do anything to him or her. The child belongs to you, but he lives in a country, a country which he is automatically a member of. And Ghana is a country that has laws to protect its citizens including the child whose image is harmed, though unaffected now but somewhere in the future. The internet never forgets.
