Nigerian singer, Wale Turner has slammed veteran singer Danny Young for accusing Tiwa Savage of intellectual property theft.
Danny Young who shared a video earlier accusing Tiwa Savage of intellectual property theft had claimed that the 2018 MTV EMAs award winner used part of his 2009 record, ‘Oju Tiwon’ without seeking permission nor gave him any credit for inspiring her latest single titled ‘One’. He wrote;
“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 artist”
Reacting to this, Wale Turner who wrote Tiwa Savage’s ‘One’ whose lyrics caused the controversy, stated that Danny Young was just ‘placing a copyright on a Yoruba proverb’. He wrote;
Make Oduduwa come sue you too wey dey use Yoruba sing na…..Baluuuuu U de put copyright for Yoruba proverb LMAO
