It is now common knowledge that Danny Young is at loggerheads with TiwaSavage over copyright infringement.
Danny Young has now gone as far as taking down her music video from Youtube.
Tiwa had released a single titled, One, late last year and Danny Young said on his Instagram page that she lifted a line off his 2009 single, Oju ti Won. But Tiwa Savage said nothing and went ahead to release the visuals of the song.
However, it seems that Danny Young took the case to YouTube and suceeded in getting Tiwa Savage’s video off the video sharing platform.
His words, “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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
