Danny young has proceeded to sue Tiwa after the video was restored on Youtube
Veteran singer cum hit-maker, Tiwa Savage has been hit with an N200M lawsuit by singer Danny Young Uber the allegations of copyright theft.
Earlier this morning, it was reported that the video for Tiwa Savage’s song, ‘One’ which was initially taken down by streaming platform, YouTube following allegations of copyright infringement by a third party believed to be Ajibola Olumuyiwa Danladi, popularly known as Danny Young had been restored as the allegations could not be proven.
But instead of a happy ending, Danny Young has now taken the case further with a lawsuit filed against her at the Federal Hight Court, Lagos, dated February 13, 2019.
This was made known by Danny Young on his Instagram page with the caption,
”Tiwa! I know pple love u! Even me… BUT I still have to sue u bcos u stole my sh*t! a simple dialogue would av solved this but u prefer it this way. Now we will be in court discussing some 200,000,000 Damages.”
|Danny Young Sues Tiwa Savage For Alleged Copyright Theft|
In a press release by the law firm representing him, Creative Legal and signed by its Principal Attorney, Justin Ige, it stated the reason why the decision was made,
“Piracy is bad enough, but it is perhaps worse when creative people appear to completely disrespect the intellectual property rights of fellow creatives. Such conduct should not be without due consequences”
A lay man may not understand what we are fighting for as it is more technical than just the lyrics. Nigeria is a place where writers do not get credits from the artiste they wrote songs for because the artiste wants to get all the glory alone.
Producers also do not know that they have a right to royalties even after being paid for the beat. If I contribute one word to your composition, I automatically have a right to credits as one of the writers. This is a world standard and anything less is unacceptable especially when coming from an artiste that has international exposure.”
Since the allegations were initially made, Tiwa Savage has refused to respond to it in any terms However, a few media holdings has made efforts to reach out to the singer, Tiwa Savage’s representatives for comment but are yet to get any response

Drake went through a hell of a year when it came to his son. Although the rapper had planned on revealing his seed to the world on his album, Pusha T beat him to the punch and dragged young Adonis into the feud. At the time, millions believed the "deadbeat dad" narrative that Pusha T sold so well, but that was all for entertainment. Grounded in reality, and not a rap feud, is Drake's undying love for his child. The proud father gushed about his newborn on Scorpion, but he's been careful about sharing too much information about the baby. As Christmas night drew to a close though, Drizzy took to Instagram to share a piece of art his son made for him, presumably as a holiday gift.
Drake posted a picture of Adonis' hand painting to his Instagram, captioning the pic with "Adonis > Picasso don’t @ me 💙🎄." Those are the words of an extremely proud father, and the white frame he placed around the artwork drives his admiration home. Adonis' art will certainly hold a special place on Drizzy's wall. While Drake may have millions in the bank, it's the little things that come from the heart that really touch us all.
Nigerian artist Timaya surprised his second baby mama Tama with a brand new black Range Rover. The singer revealed that the car gift is an early Christmas present for his baby mama.

Rapper Pitbull is making the expansion of his educational endeavours his New Year's resolution, pledging to teach 20,000 students in his schools by the close of 2019.
The Timber hit-maker is the co-founder and ambassador for SLAM! (Sports Leadership Arts and Management) charter schools, which has expanded into seven locations since the first campus was founded in 2013 in his native Miami, Florida, and now he is looking to educate double the number of kids for the year ahead.
"When it comes to education, we have now 10 schools with 10,000 kids in it. So I would say for next year my resolution would be to be up to 20 schools with 20,000 kids in it," he tells Variety.
Pitbull, real name Armando Perez, is proud of his work with SLAM!, which serves low-income students with free tuition and boasts a 95 per cent graduation rate, and he hopes the success of the schools shows others how the arts can help improve society.
"Bottom line, my goal is always to show people the power of music and how that can unite people instead of divide people," he explains, "and the society that we're living in right now, everybody's about instant gratification and they're more about negative news rather than positive news.
So if we can continue to put out music that brings people together instead of separating them, that to me is always the major accomplishment.
Because that leads us to be able to do things like education and really help those that really need it and those that really crave and starve and take advantage of opportunities.
"So with that said, as always the major goal is utilising music to the best of its ability to bring everybody together."
Pitbull was honoured for his contribution to the music industry with a hand and footprint ceremony at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles on Friday (14Dec18) and the event was wrapped up with an even greater honour courtesy of his good pal John Travolta.
"It's a true honour and there's not even words to explain what it is to be a part of something so iconic - to be able to leave your legacy one way or another in Hollywood," he gushes of his cement ceremony.
"A good friend of ours, John Travolta, hit me up with a message saying: 'They better put you next to me.' "So for John Travolta, with everything that he has contributed to Hollywood and to film and the icon that he is, to be able to hit me up with a message like that? It's priceless."
Travolta was on hand at the ceremony to celebrate his friend's feat.
Rapper Meek Mill discovered his ex-girlfriend Nicki Minaj had blocked him on social media after he went on her page to check out her new man.
The Ima Boss hitmaker, who dated the Anaconda rapper from 2015 to 2017, asked his Twitter followers to send him questions as part of a Q&A session on Sunday night (16Dec18). And when asked for his opinion on Nicki's new boyfriend Kenneth Petty, who she recently debuted on social media, Meek revealed he had been blocked by his former love.
"I don’t feel nothing ... and I don’t know that man to judge him ... I went to check him out on her page and found out I was blocked," he wrote.
After Nicki shared a snap alongside her new beau earlier in December, it was revealed that he is a registered sex offender in New York due to a 1995 conviction for attempted rape, and had also served time following a first degree manslaughter charge relating to the fatal shooting of a man in 2006.
The rapper came to his defence, telling her followers Petty and the victim were both minors in 1994. She wrote, "He was 15, she was 16… in a relationship. But go (off) Internet. Ya'll can’t run my life. Ya’ll can’t even run ya’ll own life."
TMZ reported that she had been in a relationship with Petty before, as they first dated when she was 16 years old.
As part of his #AskMeek Twitter session, Meek, who was released in prison in April after spending five months behind bars over a probation violation, was asked about the hardest thing about being incarcerated. He replied, "Not being able to go home (crying with laughter) of course... but really that cold metal toilet... I’m picky about my toilets ... and I was sad it was a toilet 3 feet away from my bed."
When asked when he could perform in London, he admitted he had trouble getting past U.K. authorities due to his record, and he also opened about his sex life, revealing that he was "getting freakier" now he was older.
Travis Scott and Kanye West have moved on after their feud, the Sicko Mode star's partner Kylie Jenner has insisted.
The pair hit headlines last week (end16Dec18) when Kanye tweeted about the track, which features Drake and includes a line about preferring "checks over stripes" - a reference to preferring Nike over Adidas (Kanye's Yeezy brand is a collaboration with Adidas).
Accusing Travis of threatening him as part of his beef with Drake, Kanye added: "You gotta a number one record but you got it by letting this dude diss your brother in law."
He later deleted the tweets about Travis and backtracked over his remarks, and on Saturday told followers that he had met up with Travis. "Met with Trav at my crib this morning We expressed ourselves It’s all love," he wrote on Saturday night, before later adding:
"Drake and Trav both love Ye (Kanye) more than anyone and I love those guys back. We love everyone."
However, just hours later, Travis sported Nike apparel in a post on his Instagram Stories, raising eyebrows and causing one fan to comment:
"Travis Scott is my kinda petty." Jumping to Travis' defense, reality star Kylie insisted:
"he’s not being petty. this is a sweatshirt design (the sock is apart of the design). everyone is good, moved on, living life.
For anyone who wasn’t aware - Travis has had a deal with Nike and still does. point is.. it’s all been talked out. It’s only positive energy.
" Travis has yet to address any issues with Kanye on his social media pages.

Eminem's "Kick Off" garnered a variety of reactions. His fans took the diss track as yet another symbol of his lyrical prowess. Others took it as a joke, comparing his performance to the impersonation of comedian Chris D'Elia. Then, in come the supporters of the people who were dissed on the track. Christina Aguilera fans seem to have made the most noise, along with some allies.
The mention of the pop star on "Kick Off" recalls their first public disagreement that began with an interview on MTV. After Christina spoke of Slim Shady's "My Name Is" music video and its shock value, prompted by the television host's questions, she offered some extra information. Apparently, she had heard of Eminem's recent marriage to a woman who happened to be the same one he mentioned/murdered in a previously released song. Her comments upset the emcee, leading him to return some heat via "The Real Slim Shady."
Fans who are old enough to recall this spat assume Eminem is still butt-hurt over the matter.Eminem still mad because Christina had the balls, 17 years ago, to don`t give a fuck about what a trash like him said about her .— Christina Aguilera (@MartinFighterX) December 1, 2018
Imagine being so relevant 20 years later pic.twitter.com/kYSjE86BAN
Most of the disapproval rose from the violent nature of the lyrical content. The condoning of sexual assault was named as one of the main reasons for the critics' upset. Peep the bars in question:
“F*ck Christina with a plastic spoon/While I bump some G-funk and blast some Snoop/‘Cause her double-G cups are massive, huge!/It’s fun for me to just to grab a boob/Plus my penis got an attitude. My f*ckin’ weiner’s in a combative mood.”
@eminem disses @xtina once again. Wtf is your problem, dude? Got no attention? Is your penis too small? pic.twitter.com/WCVvDqn53s— LoveForXtina (@LoveForXtina) December 1, 2018
To the insecure, old man, who will always be outmatched by any strong female...this ones for you @Eminem. pic.twitter.com/Zhj1cuurao— Access Xtina (@AccessXtina) December 3, 2018
With playing 80 dates of her Witness:The Tour and grossing over $1 million per night and serving as a judge on ABC’s American Idol reboot, reportedly earning north of $20 million, Katy Perry is the 2018 world’s highest paid woman in music, according to Forbes, making a whopping $83 million pretax.
Ranking second on the list is singer Taylor Swift who raked in $80 million, with the launch of her new album Reputation, which sold two million copies worldwide in its opening week.
According to Forbes, the only reason she didn’t claim the top spot on this list is that most of her Reputation Stadium Tour dates fell just outside this year’s scoring period. Beyoncé rounds out the top three, pulling in $60 million.
See the top 10 below:
- Katy Perry – $83 million
- Taylor Swift – $80 million
- Beyoncé – $60 million
- Pink – $52 million
- Lady Gaga – $50 million
- Jennifer Lopez – $47 million
- Rihanna – $37.5 million
- Helene Fischer – $32 million
- Celine Dion – $31 million
- Britney Spears – $30 million
Meek Mill's new album has transformed from "surprise" to imminent reality. The Philadelphia hero has been teasing his upcoming endeavor for a minute, and as of now, it has finally shed "untitled" status. The project is set to be called Championships, and Meek has taken to Instagram to share the official album artwork. The colorful shot captures a close up of Meek's face, with emphasis on his focused gaze. Minimalist in nature, though visually stimulating nonetheless.
Championships is set to drop at the end of the month, on November 30th. While we still don't entirely know what to expect, a Cardi B collaboration has already been confirmed; from the sound of it, it's going to be a banger. What do you think of Meek's artwork? Though it's best not to judge an album based on its cover, artwork can play a pivotal role in emphasizing an album's tone.

The Satanic Temple has a bone to pick with Netflix worth $150 million.
Netflix recently released their latest series, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, that plays on the old classic Sabrina The Teenage Witch but with a thrilling twist of dark happenings and Satan references. For that reason, the Satanic Temple has sued the streaming service and Warner Bros. for $150 million, The Blast reports, claiming the show copyrighted their design of the monument to Baphomet.
According to the publication, documents read that the “Defendants misappropriated the TST Baphomet Children in ways implying that the monument stands for evil. Among other morally repugnant actions, the Sabrina Series’ evil antagonists engage in cannibalism and forced-worship of a patriarchal deity.”
The statue apparently appears in four of the 10 episodes on Netflix. The Temple’s co-founder, Lucien Greaves, even tweeted a photo for reference, as seen below. The Temple is suing for "copyright infringement, trademark violation, and injury to business reputation, asking for $50 million for each one, for a total of $150 million in alleged damages."
