The Weeknd
Connection with Able.
The connection i have with Able is that his ethnic background is Ethiopian. I am an Ethiopian and we were both born in Scarborough Ontario, Canada. We both like to play basketball and were both athletic.
The Weeknd/Able Tesfaye was born on February 16, 1990 Scarborough, Ontario. He is an only child. Able dropped out of high school at the age of 17 and now he is a Singer, Songwriter and a producer. His Genres are PBR&B. He started his career in 2010 and already is popular. His associated act is Drake. Drake is a multi-millionaire in the rap business. I thought it would be good for Able and Drake to make songs together and they did so. When Able was younger his dad was never around. His mom was constantly working. His grandmother was taking care of him as he grew up. His grandmother taught him Amharic like English and now he speaks fluent Amharic.
