The movie they are suing Multi Choice for is titled “Compulsory Risk” ,it was released in 2009 and was aired on Multichoice’s TV channels illegally. According to the twins, Multichoice Nigeria didn’t ask them for permission before airing the movie. They also sued Multichoice for allegedly presenting fake documents while defending its actions. They had been hearing from friends that their movie had been aired on Multichoice TV channels, but they never had the opportunity to watch it themselves. But on a particular day, the twins were at home when the movie was aired. The film which they claim was aired on November 5, 2010, was recorded by the ladies on their phone which they presented as evidence!
 Here’s what they said, in their own words:
 “we went for the copyright of ‘Compulsory Risk’ on 04/09/2009, and we were given the Acknowledgement of Copyright Notification on the 14/12/2009 .We also censored the movie at the National Film and Video Censors Board, Onitsha, Anambra State, on 11/09/09, and we received the censorship approval on 05/10/2009.
