Nigerian Singer, Danny Young, was blasted on social media after he called out Mavin Records artiste and pop diva, Tiwa Savage, for allegedly song theft and intellectual property infringement.
Danny posted a video on his Instagram where he made claims that the 2018 MTV EMAs award winner used parts of his 2009 record, ‘Oju Tiwon’ without seeking permission nor gave him any credit for inspiring her latest single titled ‘One’.
I never knew I would be a victim of intellectual property theft until now. the worst pain is that my song was stolen by Tiwa savage who happens to be one of my favorite female artiste😡😡😡
But Nigerians didn’t take the allegations against the Mavin queen likely as they dragged Danny Young for attempting to soil the image of Tiwa Savage, pointing out that the part of the song which he accuses the female star of lifting was an old Yoruba proverb and as such, he can’t claim ownership of the lyrics.
