AT LAST!! Danny Young And Tiwa Savage Finally Settle Copyright Lawsuit Out Of Court
Nigerian entertainers, Danny Young and Tiwa Savage have finally reached an out-of-court settlement over their copyright legal battle.
TheGuardian reports that Nigerian singers, Danny Young and Tiwa Savage have settled their legal battle out of court.
It was reported earlier that Danny Young filed a N200 million copyright suit against Savage for her 2018 song, ‘One’, which he claimed she copied from his 2009 single, “Oju Tiwon”.

In the suit, he sought a declaration that by copying, performing, and distributing literary work and music lyrics authored and owned by him without lawful authority, the defendants have infringed on his copyright.

He also sought an order of perpetual injunction restraining the defendants, whether by themselves or their agents, from further copying, performing, recording, reproducing, or communicating to the public, his musical composition.

“Mutual efforts in this regard have been successful and our client and the defendants, Tiwa Savage and Mavin Records, have come to a common understanding and agreed on the terms for the discontinuation of the suit. Therefore we shall no longer be proceeding with the court action.”

In the suit that was filed in February, Danny Young also joined Tiwa Savage’s former record label, Mavin Records, owned by Don Jazzy.
In an update to the story, Danny Young has revealed that they have settled out of court. He made this known today on his Instagram page.
In a statement signed by his lawyers, the singer commended Tiwa’s management “for committing in good faith, time and efforts towards finding an amicable resolution to the dispute.”
The statement reads in part:-
According to Young’s lawyer, Justin Ige, the decision to settle out of court stemmed from the respondents (Tiwa Savage & Mavin Records) reaching out to his client and requesting that the case be settled out of court.
Both parties considered an out-of-court settlement for the first time at a Federal High Court in Ikoyi, Lagos on November 6.
