Y’akoto sits at the confluence of music and fashion, expressing both through unapologetic avant-garde themes. Musically, the year has been busy for the German-Ghanaian neo-soul singer who has released two singles ‘Secret‘ and ‘WMYT, with visuals for both records. And it’s only mid-year, guys!
Fashion and confidence go hand in hand and Y’akoto knows how to flaunt both so well. Her unique style, which comes across as easy with a touch of extravagance, puts her on my list of fashionable Ghanaian entertainment personalities.
