The Weeknd ditched his iconic hair for a fresh new look as he revealed the cover for his new album, ‘Starboy’. However, he offended the fans of Nigeria’s very own Starboy, the international celebrity, Wizkid. Check out what they said on Twitter:

We are just here wondering is it that serious? Can no one else now be a starboy again? Wizkid himself was asked by one of his followers what he thinks about the weekend calling his album ‘Starboy’ and, well-
Everybody a Star! 💥 https://t.co/jKrVPwWEXv
