In the video, she was seen smashing the windshield of a car belonging to musician Theo Vesachi, an incident that occurred during Ramadan.

Akuapem Poloo has now revealed that the altercation was entirely staged. Speaking in an interview on Accra FM on May 22, 2024, she explained that Theo Vesachi approached her with the idea as part of a publicity stunt to promote his upcoming song.

"Everyone knows I'm an actress and I don't mind creating controversy," she said. "Theo had a song coming up so he approached me and asked that we do something controversial to bring attention to the song."

She further clarified that the damage to the car was pre-planned and not a real altercation. "I was even afraid but he assured me that he would buy a new one. So I did, and truly, that same day, he replaced it."

Addressing potential backlash, particularly from the Muslim community who were concerned due to the timing during Ramadan, Akuapem Poloo explained, "The Muslim community was worried when the video came up, but I explained myself to them and assured them that it was staged. So it was settled."

Akuapem Poloo emphasized that there is no ongoing relationship between her and Theo Vesachi, and that she was paid for her participation in the stunt, which successfully garnered attention for his music.
