The Weeknd

written by Sabidul Hassan September 21, 2015


Abel Teafaye commonly known as ‘The weeknd ‘ was born in 1990 somewhere in Canada. He is a Canadian multi talented Singer, song writer as well as a Producer. He became well known when he started doing shows in stages and until he got the name ‘weeknd’. His tracks never focuse on a single music genre rather those are mixed like (soul, quiet storm, hip hop, funk, indie rock).

HE prefers to be more preserve than any other pop starts

To be more precise he never opens himself totally to the reporters. One in a million of the reporters get lucky enough to get in sight with him. Almost everything we know about him is from his interviews with musicians who have collaborated with him or via the infrequent nuggets he egests on his secretive blog and Twitter account. There is a reason behind everything, most of his life was spent idolizing story tellers who tell stories using symbolism. So this was in his nature to do the same. He told this to one of his fans “I usually don’t like to ‘spoon feed’ my audience”. So this made him into what he is.

He is congenial to Drake



Tesfaye hails from Toronto coincidentally Aubrey Graham, a.k.a. hip-hop megastar Drake was also a rising star at Toronto, Drake admitted that “We are definitely a Family” on a MTV interview.

He loves expressing himself as an Ethiopian


Tasfaye’s parents were from Ethiopia, he has addressed his Ethiopian heritage in a music video of his own track known as “The Knowing” .

His team is known as XO

By XO people means either ‘kisses and hugs’ or drugs used like ‘ecstasy and oxycontin’ . Regardless watching the content of his songs both names perfectly matches. At the end of his and his collaborators’ twitter handles it is observed ‘THE LETTRS XO’
