The Culture of Nigeria
After the end of the British colonial period in the area, the country struggled
to define itself. This struggle was particularly evident in some of the art that
was created in this area. Artistically, there is a creative tension between the
colonial modes of artistic expression and the Western modes of artistic
expression. For instance, the novel is an art form with its routes in Western
civilization, but several important novelists have arisen in this area. Those
novelists writing in the latter half of the 1900ís explored the themes of
colonialism versus traditionalism in their writings. The most notable writer to
emerge from Nigeria was Chinua Achebe. The writer of several novels, Achebe was
most renowned for his classic novel Things Fall Apart. For this book and the
rest of his work, he was awarded a Nobel prize in literature.
Films have also become an important part of the contemporary art scene in this
country. In the last twenty years, the movie industry has grown substantially in
Nigeria. Many watchers call the movie industry Nollywood, and their films are
enjoyed by local audiences as well as film connoisseurs from around the world.
In spite of the thriving film industry, traditional culture still dominates many
areas. For instance, the traditional masquerade which involves the use of wooden
Yoruba masks is still quite common in many areas of Nigeria.
Soccer is an extremely important part of the local
culture in Nigeria. The
national team is the Super Eagles who are ranked third among African nations and
are about twentieth in the world. Many Nigerian people also follow English
premiere league teams. Their affiliations for teams like Manchester United or
Liverpool can often supersede their regional or cultural affiliations.
