PERHAPS, the timing of Akuapem Poloo’s post about getting her freedom a year ago might have been read differently by her followers as a “shade” to Afia Schwarzenegger who teased her when she was jailed for indecent exposure.

A High Court in Tema, on Thursday, December 1, 2022 fined Fadda Dickson Narh, Felicity Nana Ama Agyeman aka Empress Nana Ama Mcbrown, Valentina Nana Agyeiwaa, alias Afia Schwarzeneger, Kwame Asare Obeng, alias Kwame A Plus and Emmanuel Barnes alias Mr. Logic who have had issues with the law, based on a panel discussion held on United Showbiz, a television entertainment discussion programme on UTV.

Afia Schwarzenegger was not in court on Thursday, and so the court issued a bench warrant for her arrest.

She is to spend 10 days in prison when arrested while the others were slapped with a GH¢60,000 fine each.

The judgement made headlines both on social media and mainstream media with Afia Schwarznneger’s sentence being the main focus.

In the heat of the moment, Akuapem Poloo wrote on her Instagram page, “Last Year December by this time, I was on my way to Nsawam Prison. Thank You, Allah Thank, you the judiciary thank you Ghana ??????????  thank you the world.”

Since she made the post, many have insinuated that Akuapem Poloo was mocking Afia Schwarzenneger but in an interview with Graphic Showbiz, the controversial actress has denied her post was directed at Afia Schwarzenegger.

 “I didn’t even know Afia Schwarzenegger will be jailed. I was just happy I am free and December 1 marks a year I was in Jail. Ghanaians should be happy for me instead of reading meanings into my post.

“Although Afia Schwarzenegger said unpleasant things about me when I was in jail, I will never wish bad for her,” she stated.

Afia Schwarzenegger and Akuapem Poloo who had a good relationship fell out a few years ago.
