Wizkid is being threaten by international singer The Weeknd, To Sue him Over ‘Starboy’ Trademark Rights

Abel Makkonen Tesfaye, known by his stage name, The Weeknd, is an Ethiopian-Canadian singer, songwriter, and record producer.

According to report issued by TMZ, “The Weeknd” will be suing Nigerian singer “Wizkid” and any other artistes that tries to Trademark the name “Starboy”.


The Weekend said, he wants people to know that he is the real and only “Starboy” and his lawyers are ready to take on any ‘impostors’.

TMZ also reports that the Canadian singer’s lawyers filed documentation against Eymun Talasazan, a realtor. Talasazan filed to trademark “Starboy” for his own creative projects long after the Weekend’s album and hit song of the same name.

According to TMZ, the musician’s legal team found Talasazan was up to other shady copyright business. He previously filed to trademark “Straight Outta Bombton” and “Runnin’ Through the 6.” Such details reveal one thing – he’s mostly likely in it for the money.
