Y’AKOTO “Tobo Darling” music video for Warner Records

International recording artist Y’AKOTO of Warner Music Europe, shoots her “Tobo Darling” music video in Los Angeles. The video captures a day in the life of an old neighborhood barber shop. Colorful characters gossip, laugh, dance and get their hair done along with Y’AKOTO. “Tobo” means relax in Ghana and that’s just how Y’AKOTO sings of a man that should show himself “once in a while.”
