Why Her Son Does Not Like Interviews?

Samra Tesfaye’s son¬†‘The Weeknd,’¬†aka¬†Abel Makkonen Tesfaye, doesn’t like doing any interviews.

He is one of the most prominent singers in the mainstream world; although a lot knows him of people at the same time, we don’t kind of know him just because he rarely does any interviews.

There are only a handful of videos interview of him on the internet, and most of them don’t even exceed more than five minutes.

The certain possibilities behind him not doing many interviews. Maybe¬†he doesn’t want to give away too much of himself.

For a certain time, people don’t even know that either¬†‘The Weeknd’¬†was a solo artist or a group which, instead of being a backfire for his career, worked on his favor; thus, he¬†preferred being enigmatic.

As he never graduated¬†High School¬†ever since then,¬†‘The Weeknd’¬†has always been insecure about that and felt like he wasn’t articulate enough.
