Mey3guy said it is a part of his brand so he should not take it off
Iamsongz said he should keep it since it looks good on him
This twitter user asked him not to take it off yet.
Other twitter users also believed that Kuami Eugene was just using Akuapem Poloo as an excuse to take off the rasta he has on.
Some other also said he is deciding to take off the Rasta because, Nigerian teen musician Rhema, who they believe Kuami Eugene looks up to, has taken down his rasta.
Meanwhile, the National Communications Officer of the National Democratic Congress(NDC), Sammy Gyamfi has also joined the majority of Ghanaians pleading Akuapem Poloo's sentence.
Sammy Gyamfi said the three-month handed down to Akuapem Poloo was harsh and high-handed.
According to him, the court should have been considerate since she is a first offender and pleaded guilty to the offence she was charged with.
“The sentence given to @IamAkuapemPoloo is very harsh and high-handed. Given the fact that she is a first offender, pleaded guilty, and showed remorse, a non-custodial sentence would have been appropriate. Sad! I pray@NAkufoAddo remits her sentence or pardons her,” he wrote in a tweet.
