Wizkid fans called out Canadian singer The Weeknd for naming his latest single “Smile”.

The Weeknd announced earlier today that the title of their latest single and collaboration with late rapper JuiceWrld is “Smile.” The record was said to have been made before the death of Juicewrld who died in December 2019 from an accidental overdose, but Wizkid FC were not there for it. For them, it was another way to copy Wizkid again.

The controversy began when The Weeknd named their 2016 album Starboy. He then received several awards for this, including a Grammy for “Best Urban Contemporary Album”. Yet at the time, fans hadn’t forgotten that Wizkid initially claimed the title when he launched Starboy Entertainment in 2013 and had used the moniker for years.

The Weeknd also promised to take legal action against any artist using the name at that time. Shortly after his tweet, Wizkid fans called him out for using the same name as Wizkid’s latest single with American singer H.E.R.
