So, Starboy is in the news again, and this might just end with a litigation. Remember in 2016 when the Weeknd released Starboy, we felt that he stole the name from out own Starboy, Wizkid. Apparently Wizkid did nothing until recently when someone decided to do something about Starboy.
According to TMZ, a Somali singer, poet and songwriter has called The Weeknd and Daftpunk out for stealing her song titled Yooho. According to some documents obtained by TMZ , Yasminah, claims that the songs (Yooho and Starboy) sounded very much alike, first was the hook, the tempo and then similar claps on the 2 and 4 beats. Yasminah sampled the opinion of others on a certain blog and everyone seems to agree with her that the songs are very similar sounding.
The Somalian singer wants $5million for her song. Now, what seems to be the proverbial nail in the coffin is that this case has been brought up before by Yasminah’s producers. There was an out of court settlement, the producers where paid off, but she didn’t get a share of the goodies. Now she wants hers so she is suing. We wish her goodluck. Perhaps after she’s done, Wizkid will sue also. Let’s see how that goes.
