On June 30, 2020, the actress went viral after she took to Instagram to share a naked photo of herself and her son who was half-naked to mark his 7th birthday.
The photo attracted mixed reactions from social media users and most of them slam her for sharing a nude photo with her son. She took down the photo shortly but that didn’t end there as the child’s right organization petitioned and sued her.
The complainant in the case was Bright Appiah, the Director of Child Rights International Ghana. He petitioned the police after the photo went viral on social media, and the matter was referred to the Domestic Violence and Victims Support Unit (DOVVSU).

The actress was charged for publication of obscene materials, engaging in domestic violence (conduct that in any way undermines another person’s privacy or integrity, and conduct that in any way detracts or is likely to detract from another person’s dignity and worth as a human being).
Handing down the sentence this Friday, the Accra Circuit Court expressed discontent with the alarming rate with which nudity has become a thing in the country’s social media space. According to the judge, it is important the court take sanctions for the message to go down with everyone how wrong it is to do that on social media and the actress’ punishment will serve as a disincentive to others.
Reacting to the sentence, Akuapem who had pleaded for mercy from the court and added that she had learned her lessons has in a video thanked her fans and supporters and told them to pray for her as this is only a test that she must go through.
