Nigerian singer and songwriter, Danny Young has filed a law suit against Tiwa Savage and Mavin Records over claims that she stole a line from one of his songs and adopted as her own song without seeking permission. The title of the song is “One”.
Tiwa savage released a single last year titled “One,” and in this song, she sang a particular line which was present in Danny Young’s 2009 hit single; “Oju Ti Won.” This then made Danny vent his anger about it last year after the song was released, accusing Tiwa Savage of adopting the line without asking for his permission.
Now, on the 23rd of this month being October, a law suit of 205 million naira has now been officially filed against Tiwa Savage and her former record label, Mavin Records for copyright infringement. According to a Federal High court in Lagos, both parties would be present for hearing on November 5, 2019.
It is worthy to note that the song, “One” was released in 2018 and originally written by indigenous rapper, Wale Turner.
