Gündelik hayatımızın önemli bir parçası olan popüler kültür kadar, sürekliliğini koruyan başka bir olgudan bahsetmek mümkün görünmemektedir. Zevkle dinlenen müzikler, bir sonraki bölümünün heyecanla beklendiği TV programları, başarılarla neşelenen ve talihsizlikler sonrası avunulmaya çalışılan oyun grupları popüler kültürden sadece bir kaçıdır. En çok satan kitaplardan en gelişmiş cep telefon modellerine kadar hem tarihi şekillendirmede hem de günümüz gençlerinin düşüncelerini ve faaliyetlerini etkilemede popüler kültür kuşkusuz etkin bir rol üstlenmiştir. Bu kültür sarmalında; görkemli, bağımlılık yapan, fasılasız ve heyecanla tasvir edilebilecek bir dönemden bahsedilmektedir. Çevrimiçi yaşamla birlikte, küresel bir topluma dönüşen kültürün, dünyaya yayılması daha basit hale gelmiştir. Popüler kültür bağlamında bu durumun ayrıca toplumun farklı katmalarına da sirayet ettiği gözlemlenmektedir. Bu çalışmanın temel amacı okuyuculara Nijerya'daki popüler kültürün geldiği boyutu aktarmaktır. Çalışmaya popüler kültür tanımından başlanmış, daha sonra Nijerya'nın demografisini tartışılmış ve son olarak Nijerya'daki popüler kültürün toplum üzerindeki etkileri ele alınmıştır.

 

Abstract

There is nothing progressively prominent that is a piece of our regular day to day existence than the results of pop culture. The music we so enthusiastically tune in through our earphones, the TV demonstrates we tirelessly pursue (excitedly anticipating characters' next plot moves), the games groups we cheer with during triumphs and feel for after hard misfortunes. From best selling books to the most prominent advanced mobile phone patterns, popular culture has assumed both a job in forming history and impacting the contemplations and activities of young people today. We are living in a period portrayed by various, magnificent, addictive, and unremitting excitement in the circle of popular culture. With the coming of online life, it has turned out to be simpler to spread culture over the globe changing the world into one worldwide society. This has additionally observed the entrance of popular culture into different parts of society. The main focus of this article is to introduce to the readers the popular culture in Nigeria. To achieve that, I started by defining what popular culture is, and then go on to discuss the demographics of Nigeria after which I covered the popular culture in Nigeria and its effects on the Nigerian society.
