Tiwa Savage Is Accused By Singer Danny Young Of Stealing His Lyrics, Fans React


Danny Young has taken to social media to call out Mavin queen, Tiwa Savage for allegedly stealing his lyrics for her new song, “One.”
According to the young singer, Tiwa Savage lifted some of his lyrics in his song ‘Oju Twon’ to make up her song ‘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 favourite female artists,” the singer wrote.
And from the video he shared, fans noticed the similarities in their verses. However, while many people insist that it wasn’t intellectual theft as the verse was taken from a Yoruba proverb, others added that the Mavin queen included more lines beyond the said proverb.

Nigerian Singer, Danny Young, did not get the response he’d have hoped for after he called out Mavin Records artiste and pop diva, Tiwa Savage, on allegations bothering on song theft and intellectual property infringement.
Doing a mash-up of both records, Danny Young tried to highlight the similarities between both records and said that although he was a fan of Tiwa and respects her along with other women in the Nigerian music industry, he felt disappointed that an international act like the Roc Nation managed star should ‘know better to do the right thing’.


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. Others accused him of searching for relevance, teasing that his career has been moribund for some time.

Tiwa Savage the queen of Afrobeats music released a new single titled ‘One’ as the year-end. The highly anticipated track ‘One’ is a melodic tune that should hit home for Afrosoul music lovers. Capping off a very strong and successful year with two MTV Europe Music Awards (EMA) nomination, including Best African Artist!
‘One’ significantly marks a closing anthem to a beautiful year in a celebratory fashion for Tiwa Savage, as the lyrics of the song clearly indicates her account of the achievements this year. With a solid outing of her previous release titled ‘Lova Lova’ with over 12million streams, Ms. Savage remains atop her game with this release. Solidifying her prominence as one of the top artists, Tiwa Savage timing cannot be any better as 2018 whines down.
