Akuapem Poloo Now Sleeps With Dogs For Money? : Instagram User Drops Serious Allegation



Few days past when Child Rights International (CRI) has petitioned the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service over socialite, Akuapem Poloo’s raw photo with her son.

Akuapem Poloo, in the early hours of June 30, 2020, set social media buzzing with a photo she posted to mark her son’s 7th birthday.

Her decision to post such a photo, according to her, was to commemorate the day she was naked in the labor ward as she delivered her son.

Well, Rosemond Brown as widely known, is still very much in trouble but she could actually care less about it.

She is still the very loudmouth person she has always been but this time around, we are not even going to fault her for what she did.

She shared a picture of herself and one male user decided to act all foolish and offensive in the comment box.

He asked Poloo how much she would charge to sleep with his dog for a night, literally saying the mother of one sleeps with dogs for money.

Read what ensued between them below.

Coronavirus Vaccine Is A “Mark Of The Beast” : US Presidential Aspirant, Kanye West Claims



American presidential aspirant and Rapper, Kanye West, has made a very controversial claim over the COVID-19 vaccine as he reveals it is a mark of the beast.

Speaking to Forbes in an exclusive interview, Kanye West opened up on how he recovered after testing positive for Coronavirus in February 2020.

He also condemned the COVID-19 vaccine as he alleged that it is a chip that is mandated to prevent Christians to make it to heaven.

Sharing his experience, the billionaire Hip Hop star said; “Chills, shaking in the bed, taking hot showers, looking at videos telling me what I’m supposed to do to get over it.

“I remember someone had told me Drake had the coronavirus and my response was Drake can’t be sicker than me!”.

He added saying; “God just gave me the clarity and said it’s time. “You know I was out there, ended up in the hospital, people were calling me crazy. I’m not crazy,”.

“Between all of the influences and the positions that we can be put in as musicians… It can drive you crazy, through all of that I was looking crazy because it wasn’t the time. Now it’s time. And we’re not going crazy, we’re going Yeezy, it’s a whole ‘notha level now. N-O-T-H-A.”

He then revealed he suspects COVID-19 vaccine to be “the mark of the beast”.

“It’s so many of our children that are being vaccinated and paralyzed,”. “So when they say the way we’re going to fix COVID with a vaccine, I’m extremely cautious. That’s the mark of the beast. They want to put chips inside of us, they want to do all kinds of things, to make it where we can’t cross the gates of heaven.”

JMJ, known in real life as Joshua Raphaelson revealed during an interview with 3fm’s Miriam Osei Agyeman on the Urban blend show which comes off on Thursdays that King Promise is the best vocalist in Ghana at the moment, he said this when asked him if he had passed a wrong judgment about an artist who could not have gone far. He answered yes and that artiste was King Promise.

He explained that he had the chance to listen to him first but wasn’t too sure about signing him and might be ahead of the game in terms of vocal prowess and the industry may not be ready for him.

He further revealed that he had a record with the amazing vocal artiste which will be coming out soon.
