Less than one week that Tiwa Savage’s 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’s 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 200,000,000 Damages ??? 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.
