The official music video of Tiwa Savage’s, ‘One’ uploaded on YouTube has been taken down by the video-sharing website following a copyright claim by Danny Young.

Conversation over whether or not Danny Young had a case began late last year after the singer accused Tiwa Savage of using contents of his 2009 song, ‘Oju Tiwon’ in her ‘One’ song without his consent.

Danny Young claimed a line in his song, ‘O d’odun lan ri orogbo, o do’dun lan ri ahusa, o d’dodun lan ri omo obi lori igba’ – which when translated means ‘cash crops such as kola and walnuts are valuable every year’, was used by Tiwa Savage and since she did not bother to seek permission, it was a case of intellectual theft.

Barely months after the accusation, Tiwa Savage’s video, is unavailable on YouTube.

“This is not a social media battle, it is just about doing the right thing,” Danny Young told NET while confirming he made the claim.

“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.”
