CHAPTER ONE

1.0 INTRODUCTION

1.1 BACKGROUND OF STUDY

The growth in the use of cable television in Nigeria has contributed to the promotion of culture across the globe; this led to the exchange of cultural values between countries (Asogwa, 2010). Among other programs on the cable television, the DSTV music channel tend to be the fastest in terms of dissemination of information, promotion of culture and lifestyle compared to others.

        According to (Leadership Newspaper, 2014) stated that the advent of foreign music like the hiphop, Reggae, Rock & Roll, R & B, rap, jazz etc on DSTV music channels in Nigeria has been a welcome phenomenon, while some people believe it has created a massive and unappealing change in the life of young adults in Nigeria, insisting it’s slowly but surely wiping out the Nigerian culture coupled with the perception that the whole world is emulating America in a lot of ways, and Nigeria is no exception.

It is a known fact that in the 21st century, young Nigerians frequently cite Jay-Z and other foreign artist as their favorite artist and tend to dress like most of the popular artist in the world.

According to (Adeolu, 2011) stated that the American musics have provided a blueprint for the rest of the world to appropriate and build new cultural formations that manifest in music and identity. Yet, the subtitle of Jay-Z’s Blueprint 2 album, “The Gift and The Curse” is an apt description for the complexity of the relationship between African American culture and Nigerian young adults’ identities, which also impacts Nigerian popular music.

The music on DSTV music channels has significant effect on young adults especially those in the tertiary institutions and the Nigerian music industries (O’Donnell, 2009). Many female contemporary musicians imitate Beyonce, Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, Nicky Minaj, etc. They put on skimpy clothes that expose all their natural endowments, ignoring the kind of society they belong. They move around in shorts that could pass as underwear for men.

The study in this regard therefore wishes to examine the influence of DSTV music channels on the imitation of western lifestyle among young adults in Nigeria using Bells University of technology and university of Lagos as the case study.
