Less than one week tha 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 to a step further by charging Tiwa to court and demanding for the sum of 200 million 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 Tiwa’s ‘One’ found its way to the video streaming platform again.
In the caption of his Instagram post, Danny Young stated that he is a fan of Tiwa Savage, he will sue her 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.
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.
Meanwhile, Tiwa Savage has reportedly won a copyright case filed against her by Danny Young.
Young confirmed he filed complaints against Tiwa, saying he had reached out to her on the intellectual infringement on her song but was ignored.
