In November 2018, singer Danny Young called out Tiwa Savage for lifting vital parts of his song Oju Ti Ti Won and used it in her single One which was released towards the end of 2018.
Danny Young insisted the lyrics were his since he added a few more words and rhythm to the adage, and that he was ready to file a copyright case against Tiwa Savage.
On Wednesday morning, Nigerians woke up to discover that the song had removed from Tiwa Savage’s YouTube page. The message displayed read thus: “Tiwa Savage One is no longer available due to a copyright claim by a third party”, leading fans to believe Danny Young had made good his threat.
According To Our Source :‘NET’ Danny Young revealed that was, in fact, he who made the copyright claim so as to stop Savage from continuing to profit on what is originally his.
“This is not a social media battle; it is just about doing the right thing. When I heard her song last year, my lawyers reached out to her lawyers but they ignored us. They thought it was just one small boy talking,” he said, adding also that he has respect for Tiwa and it was nothing personal.
“Don’t get me wrong, I have a lot of respect for Tiwa Savage and I respect her craft as well, but you see, two brothers can have a case in court and still have a good relationship with each other.”
