Tiwa Savage Copyrights Saga: Danny Young Doesn’t Have A Case – Wale Turner

Caught between the copyrights battle between Nigerian superstar Tiwa Savage and Danny Young is fast rising new comer, Wale Turner. The singer as been accused of writing the song in question which is the cause of the copyrights battle between Tiwa Savage and Danny Young. Speaking through his manager, he said;  “Whenever Tiwa is recording in the studio, I am usually with her. It was on one of those occasions that she recorded the song (One)and I was there to support her.”  “Danny Young doesn’t have a case. There should have been a proper conversation, instead of him attacking Tiwa on social media. I feel there are better ways the issue could have been addressed. Although he said he contacted Tiwa’s management and they ignored him, I don’t think he reached out to the right persons. I am not a bad person and I am not trying to support anyone. But I know Tiwa and her team very well; I know they pay attention to details. We didn’t even think about Danny Young when we were recording the song.”
“I was there when Wale assisted in writing the song at Eko Hotels and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos. It was at the same time they were recording DJ Enimoney’s song, Diet. Tiwa had lodged producers such as Spellz, Sarz and Killertunz in the hotel.
“In music, you are allowed to use another person’s language or lyrics but it must not exceed a certain time limit. It is only if it exceeds 10 to 15 seconds that you would be accused of copyright infringement. The particular line in question is a Yoruba adage and I don’t think anyone can lay claim to the ownership of the adage.” Photo Credit: Getty
