An actress who posed naked in a photo with her son has been jailed for 90 days.

Rap megastar Cardi B has weighed in on a campaign to free Ghanian Rosemond Brown – also known as Akuapem Poloo – from her "harsh" sentence.

Despite the carefully arranged snap covering all private areas, single mum Poloo, 31, was found guilty in Accra, Ghana of sharing "obscene material" on social media in June last year.

As her seven-year-old son is also in shot wearing only briefs, Poloo was also convicted of carrying out "domestic violence that undermines another person’s privacy or could harm someone’s dignity and self-worth".

Judge Christiana Cann compared the photo to child abuse, amidst a rise of "obscene materials" in Ghana, The Sun reports.

Cann said: "The court is bothered with posting nude photos on social media.

"Did she ask for the permission of the child before posting the said picture? Did she respect the child’s right? No, she did not.

"There is no doubt that apart from the canker of rape, defilement, physical assault, the publication of obscene materials is on the increase."

"Even tho is not my style I don’t think she was going for sexual more going the natural idea.

"I think jail is a bit harsh. Maybe social media probation or community service."

Ghanaian musician Sarkodie said: "I think it’s a little harsh to separate a child from the mum just because of pictures taken… would want to plead with the law to pardon our sister."

Judge Cann said that in issuing the sentence, she had taken into account the defendant’s guilty plea, the fact she is a single parent, and her apparent remorse.

But added: "A harsh sentence will serve as a deterrent."

Poloo’s defence lawyer Andy Vortia said he would appeal.
