Danny Young gets YouTube to bring down Tiwa Savage’s song
One-time rave of the moment Ajibola Olumiyiwa Danladi aka Danny Young has explained why he got YouTube to bring Tiwa Savage’s song titled One down from the platform.
RIPPLES NIGERIA can confirm that the video for the song released by Tiwa Savage is no longer available on the streaming platform after a third party complaint levelled by Danny Young.
“Tiwa Savage’s ‘One’ is no longer available due to copyright claims by third party,” a message on YouTube read.

The singer in an interview with NETng revealed that he took the action after reaching out to Tiwa Savage telling her that she uplifted lyrics from his song without giving him credit and also profiting from his intellectual property.
“This is not a social media battle, it is just about doing the right thing. When I heard her song last year, my lawyers reached out to her 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 love her craft as well, but you see, two brothers can have a case in court and still have a good relationship with each other,” he added.
Recall that Danny Young had in November 2018 called out Tiwa Savage saying she lifted vital parts of his song titled Oju Ti Ti Won on her track One which she went ahead to release officially in December last year.
