Singer Tiwa Savage recently got a YouTube Ban for copyright infringement of artist Danny Young’s song. Danny Young published on his Instagram page that she took a line off his 2009 single, Oju ti Won but Tiwa Savage refused to comment and went ahead to release the visuals of the song online.
It’s been claimed, Danny Young said he had left everything in the hands of his lawyers to make the process.
“I wasn’t the one who contacted YouTube. My lawyers handled the process; I didn’t know how they went about it. You know YouTube knows the right thing to do.”
“She felt we couldn’t do anything. I am sure she and her team know that we have a valid point. We didn’t even ask them for money, but we felt intellectual theft should be taken seriously in this part of the world.
This is just the beginning; I plan to see this to the end if she doesn’t reach us for a compromise.”
Good to see copyright infringement being taking seriously now in Nigeria
