According to Okolo, who sued alongside his company,Papilonmexy Films Studios Limited, the defendants wrote‘2faceonline.com’ on 148 out of the 355 high-resolution photographs he took at their wedding.
He claimed that 2Face’s wife, Annie Idibia, contacted him to request for the pictures he had taken at their wedding inUyo, Akwa Ibom State.
She soon after complained of the watermark imprint when she received them.
2Face, who is the second defendant then made an attempt to persuade Okolo to release the pictures without the watermark.
The photographer eventually agreed, but insisted that the copyright be credited to his company.

According to 2Face and his wife, Okolo forced the pictures on them stating that he would like to use their influence to gain brand patronage.
They agreed that they will collect the pictures on the condition that he removes the watermark, which he allegedly accepted.
