Tiwa Savage Faces Court Case Over Theft

Musician, Ajibola Olumuyiwa Danladi popularly known as Danny Young is currently having a beef with Nigerian HipHop goddess Tiwa Savage.

Danny Young has accused Tiwa Savage of copyright infringement.
Last year, Tiwa Savage released a song titled "One", days later Danny Young went to his Instagram page and called her out for using a line from his Single titled "oju ti won".

Tiwa Savage didn't reply or make any comments on the allegations on her and eventually released the video of the song "one".The song was later taken off YouTube and it is believed that Danny Young reported the issue to YouTube thats why the song was taken off their Video sharing platform.

In a chat with Sunday Scoop, Danny Young said he had left everything in the hands of his lawyers. 

He said,
 “I wasn’t the one who contacted YouTube. My lawyers handled the process; I didn’t know how they went about it. You know YouTube knows the right thing to do.”
Young insisted that before it got to this stage, his camp reached out to Tiwa Savage but she ignored them.
“She felt we couldn’t do anything. I am sure she and her team know that we have a valid point. We didn’t even ask them for money, but we felt intellectual theft should be taken seriously in this part of the world. This is just the beginning; I plan to see this to the end if she doesn’t reach us for a compromise.”
According to Danny Young, people, who are supporting Tiwa Savage on social media, are ignorant.
He added:
“When I first raised the issue, I was slammed. They said I was saying rubbish. As a professional, I believe in more action, less talk. For people who understand music, plagiarism and copyright infringement, they will understand my point. I don’t have any business with people on social media as I feel they are ignorant.
“People said she only used the same proverb and that I was not the originator of the proverb. They are not looking at the technicality and professionalism of it all. Is it the same rhythm, coordination and tone? All these are music terms that people don’t understand. If you copy someone’s work, they look at all these.”

While admitting that he loves her music, Danny Young said he has never met Tiwa Savage. “I am a fan just like she might be my fan too. I love her music; she does well and I am in support of anyone doing good music. I also like the music of Yemi Alade and Simi,” he stated.
