YouTube has taken down Tiwa Savage’s single, ‘ONE‘ due to copyright reports by a third party. The Mavins Record queen released the song in which she expressed gratitude for all that had come her way during the course of the year.
Barely 48 hours after the release of the song, controversy started after singer Danny Youngalleged on his Instagram page that Tiwa Savage had taken a line off his 2009 single, ‘Oju Ti Won.’
The allegation was dismissed by a number of his fans with Tiwa Savage refusing to comment and going ahead to release the visuals to the songs a few weeks later.
It, however, seems that Danny Young has taken his case to the Youtube ‘courts’ who have been known for their zero tolerance to any perceived case of violated copyright laws.
As at the morning of Wednesday, January 23, 2019, the video is no longer available on the streaming platform following a complaint made by a third party believed to be Ajibola Olumuyiwa Danladi, popularly known as Danny Young, even though the audio is still accessible.
In place of the video is a message which reads: “Tiwa Savage One is no longer available due to a copyright claim by a third party.”
Young confirmed to NET that he filed the complaint against the singer.
He said: “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.
“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.
“Tiwa and every other singer out there is a role model, so we must not continue to operate in an industry that has no structure. I am just trying to do the right thing and trying to prove that copyright issues must be taken seriously especially in the Nigerian entertainment industry.”
