The Weeknd Hit By $5 Million Lawsuit

Published: Tuesday 18th Sep 2018 by David

The Weeknd is accused of stealing work from an independent artist to build his song ‘Starboy.’

Bad news for the performer below…

A Somali-American poet named Yasminah claims that the Ethiopian superstar stole portions of a song she recorded in 2009 to erect ‘Starboy‘ and now hopes to receive money she feels his supposed theft makes her entitled to.

TMZ reports:

In the lawsuit, she says she co-wrote and released “Hooyo” in 2009. “Starboy” was released in Nov. 2016. According to Yasminah, the similarities are obvious to the ear — same hook, same key, similar tempo and both songs feature prominent claps on beats 2 and 4.

She is seeking $5 million.

    First of all…He’s not Eritrean. He’s Ethiopian. You’d have been better off just saying Habesha.

      Ethiopia and etriti are next door to each other. He looks Etritean to me. I read somewhere that he is both Ethiopian and etritean.
