When there was no remorse shown by neither Tiwa Savage nor Mavin Records, Danny Young decided to file a law suit through his lawyers Creative Legal.

The lawsuit (Suit No: FHC/L/CS/230/2019) was filed at the Federal High Court, Lagos, on February 13, 2019. Mr Justin Ige, of Creative Legal, claims the sum of N200 million in damages against the defendants for copyright violation.

He is also claiming N5 million as cost of action, as well as demanding an account for profits accrued to the defendants from the use of the infringing musical work titled ‘ONE’. The Federal High Court in Lagos later fixed November 5 2019 for hearing in the suit filed by Danny Young.

At the resumed hearing on Nov 5 2019, Danny Young’s lawyer, Justin Ige, informed the court that the respondents (Tiwa Savage & Mavin Records) have reached out to his client and have requested that the case be settled out of court. Mr Ige informed Justice Mohammed Liman that talks have begun between parties.He also said he would love a short adjournment to enable them to update the court on the progress made out of court. The lawyer to the respondents, however, told the court that a longer date is preferable to ensure that all parties have significant progress to report to the court. Justice Liman then adjourned the matter to December 3 for update on the out of court settlement.
