Still, a fan can hope. But how did the hashtag even get started?
Turns out, it was born out of a One Direction documentary that aired on Brazilian TV, with The Telegraph reporting: "This hashtag was linked to #OneDirectionNoMultishow, a reference to the Brazilian TV show Multishow, who ran a One Direction documentary on Sunday night. It was during this clips show that [Twitter user] @LuxoJones claimed that Zayn gave an interview, explaining that he was returning this year." Twitlonger post:
That's not the only Zayn-related hashtag to pop up over the weekend, either – '#ZaynInManila' also made the rounds, suggesting Zayn would be performing a solo concert in Manila.
The trend started after Sound Check Manila tweeted a poll, writing: "FAN POLL:How about a @zaynmalik concert in Manila? You want that? #ZaynMalikInManila "
Don't believe everything you read on Twitter, guys.
