YouTube takes down Tiwa Savage’s video over copyright claims

Video-sharing platform, YouTube, has taken down the video of Tiwa Savage’s song, ‘One’, over copyrights claims.

The video, shot by Clarence Peters, was taken down from YouTube barely a month after its release in December 2018.

In the video, Tiwa expresses gratitude for all that had come her way during the course of the year with guest appearance by veteran actress, Iya Rainbow, as her mother.

However, barely two days after the release of the song, another Nigerian singer, Danny Young, called out Tiwa Savage on his Instagram page, saying that the singer had taken a line off his single, ‘Oju Ti Won’, without taking permission from him.

Although Tiwa Savage did not respond to the allegation, the music streaming platform took down the video on Wednesday due to copyright claims by a third party.

Tiwa Savage is yet to comment on the action taken by YouTube.
