Nigeria Entertainment Industry have grown to that level that even American music stars now copy our own music stars. This happened when the Grammy award winning Canadian Singer, The Weeknd, decided to name his new body of work, third studio album after the Nigerian talented afropop singer, Wizkid.
The "I Can’t Feel My Face" Singer took to his social media account to unveiled the artwork to the album and guess what the title will be? "STARBOY", and y'all know who goes by that moniker, Wizkid? The StarBoy Worldwide Honcho.
This have got many people talking, including the Los Angeles California Rapper, TY Dolla Sign who tweeted of the Nigerian talented singer as the Realist StarBoy Gang Gang he have ever met.

Wizkid also reacted to the report, calling the "Earned It" singer "Fraud Nigga!" in a tweet he later deleted but fast hand have it captured (see below).

On some real shit. The only Starboy we acknowledge is @wizkidayo.— Amewusika (@CSAmewusika) 21 September 2016
We might know that this is not the first time the StarBoy Wizkid work have been admired by Canadian singer as Drake previously jumped unto his "Ojuelegba" single to create a remix and later enlisted him in "One Dance", a track off his latest album "Views", which went on to become the 2016 world best selling single.
The Weeknd seems to have decided to follow the footstep of his follow country man but in a manner that appears less cool. Many fans believe that the name to the album will be fitting if only the album includes a work of The Weeknd and the original StarBoy Wizkid.
Currently, the album have powered to No 1 on Billboard after the announcement, something which might be credited to the name "StarBoy".

We can't really say if the album will later receive a treat from Wizkid until the album tracklist is revealed and the album released under the name "StarBoy"
@wizkidayo it'd be mad lit if we see you on that album.🙃— Chibuzor Iwobi (@JeSuisChiby) 21 September 2016
