David Guetta is reportedly being sued for copyright infringement over his 2017 collaboration with Sia, 'Light Headed'.

The South African pop artist Daniel Baron is claiming plagiarism for his track 'Children Of The Sun', which he argues Guetta would have almost certainly heard on the radio during the French house icon's stint in the country for Ultra South Africa in 2017. 

Baron spoke to South African radio show 'Breakfast with Martin Bester' to clarify the situation, stating "Guetta was playing at Ultra that year, so there is a high possibility that one of the other DJs played my song and he heard it. When I heard the song for the very first time, it was the craziest feeling ever. It was a mixture of shock, disbelief, and honour."

Baron sent an official legal letter last December, asking Guetta for compensation and credit for 'Children Of The Sun', but has yet to receive a response from Guetta's team. Have a listen to Baron's radio interview below
