Few days after Tiwa Savage “One” was restored on Youtube after being yanked off for months for alleged copyright claims, Nigerian singer, Danny Young, who is claiming that the Ma Lo singer stole lyrics
from his song has taken the case another step further by charging Tiwa to court and demanding for the sum of 200Million naira for copyright infringement.
This court document demanding Tiwa’s presence in the Federal High Court of Nigeria, Lagos, was posted by Danny Young on Instagram on the 3rd of March,
2019, a day after the Tuwas One found its way to the video streaming platform again.
In the caption of his Instagram post, Danny Young stated that he although he is a fan of Tiwa Savage, he will sue her still because she stole the lyrics of his song. The “Oju Tiwon” singer went on to state that dialogue would have solved the issue but Tiwa prefers it this way.
“Tiwa! I know pple love u! Even
me🤗 … BUT I still have to
sue u bcos u stole my shit!😖
😆😘 a simple dialogue
would av solved this but u
prefer it this way. Now we will
be in court discussing some
🤣🤣🤣 ps. Unblock me
so I can like your pictures 👀”
The document of the lawsuit clearly states what Danny Young is suing the Tiwa Savage for which includes but not limited to the fact
that she released a song (ONE) containing lyrics that Danny Young had initially used in
his song without any authorization from him.
These claims have been regarded as
“unfounded” by Youtube which stated in their release that they cannot penalize an account for something such as lyrics hence
the restoration of ONE back on Youtube. But
apparently, Danny Young is not ready to let the issue go. Neither Tiwa Savage nor Mavin has responded to the lawsuit.
