Danny Young, Tiwa Savage settle out-of-court over copyright theft suit

Singer, Danny Young, has reached an out-of-court settlement with female colleague, Tiwa Savage, whom he filed a N200 million copyright theft suit over her song ‘One.’

The musician had alleged that her song contained uncleared samples of his 2009 single, ‘Oju ti Tiwon.’

However, in a post on Instagram on Wednesday, Danny Young announced he had reached an agreement with Tiwa and her former record label, Mavin Records, and decided to discontinue the suit.

Danny Young accused Tiwa Savage of copyright abuse in November 2018 and threatened to take the matter to court.

The video for ‘One,’ directed by Clarence Peters, was taken down from YouTube barely a month after its release in December 2018.

YouTube has restored the video for ‘One,’ after what it calls unfounded copyright claims.
