In this write up, “An Assessment of Influence of Nollywood Nollywood on youth behaviour in Nigeria (A Case Study of IMT Student). There are five chapters constituting this research work, each deals with different perspective on how a reasonable fact could be drawn as in what way home movies have been beneficial to youth behaviour. The first chapter deals with the general introduction. This gives us the highlights of the problems, aim and objective, likewise its importance. Chapter two dealt with past work done in this area and the system used in the working of the project. In chapter three, the authors emphasized on the process, system, and procedure of getting information for the purpose of arriving at a dependable solution on the research topic. In chapter four, the authors use the information general to present a feature data on the topic. Chapter five focused on the overall summary, conclusion and recommendation. Also conclusion elaborates on the challenges encountered during the course of the project and some remarks. While recommendation encompass the various facts generated and presented as to use it to change the general societal miss values most especially in our tertiary institution in Nigeria using Institute of Management and Technology (IMT), Enugu as a case study.











          The influence of home movies on the life of youth behaviour in Nigeria, the work of the twenty first century continues because of the advent of technology today it now dominate the life of mankind it has been upgraded to a level where all things without using energy as it was in the case of post centuries. This century had brought along changes and unstoppable materialization one of which is the adoption of style of living by the Africa continent and Nigeria most especially.

Even as we have some “sit tight” cultural believe it is obvious that the advent of technology has really affected societal norms and values.

However, the gospel truth remains that the society is misplacing its values, cultural heritage and the centre of all our youth behaviour who are undoubtedly leaders of tomorrow, whether they are possessions of quality personality or on the contrary. The Nigeria home movies are being celebrated by these youth behaviour.. Most of them had formed the undeniable habits of watching every home movies released into the market hence, there been a mountain of criticisms being leveled on these home videos for their future to promote morality in our higher institution of learning.

What is being show cased and obtained in home videos in nutshell are cases of violence, prostitution, money laundering, armed robbery and pornography as could be extracted from this film. “THE SENATOR”. The film propagates double standard, lack of honesty, cultism, wrong societal values, black mail success through dubious means, lack of respect for parents. As a mirror to the society, the film has been label to send a wrong massage to the minds of youth behaviour. in higher institutions. It misplaced the universal standard of how an average student ought to go about in his/her sojourn in tertiary institution, making thieves, armed robbers, cultists, from our generations of youth behaviour..

Home video in Nigeria instead of bringing massages, story lines, that could promote our cultural heritage and good values have deviated by adding more problems instead of trying to solve them. Some film introduces prostitution the only way out for a female youth behaviour., whose infirmity could not pay her school fees as if prostitution is the answer to poverty. They failed to show some youth behaviour. that are in such situation that the normal thing to do may be through menial jobs and other sources.

The video “the senator” brings out social vices and deviant behaviours and the truth of the matter remains that the influence , such films is having on youth behaviour is of negative influence. Now some believe that getting to the top is by joining secret cults or becoming blackmailers. Such videos create conflict of reasoning and most times changes ideas and orientation thereby causing violence in our higher institution.

Today, our institutions are dumping ground of mediocre. There you will find prostitutes, armed robbers, homosexuals, lesbians, cultists, worst still is that home videos promote the ills, finding its way into our youth and after scrutinizing every home videos. One can hardly find one that promote hard working, intelligence, respect peace, meekness, development, events, education or promote moral education that is to say the home videos producers/makers give our youth behaviour. foreign disguise through our local actors and actresses.

Our nervousness now is that the continual extent had adverse social and moral decadence in  our youthes which we cannot risk and afford if our future should be guaranteed.

Therefore the essence of this study is very important because whether it should be given a thought or not. It is believed that our youths, most especially youth behaviours are being influenced with home videos with unacceptable ways of life obviously opposed by our cultural heritage and societal norms and values.

Hence, what touches a finger must spread to the hand. This means that the ugly behaviours being exhibited by our youth behaviour. in higher institutions as a result of watching home videos will certainly affect Nigeria if not today, surely we cannot escape it tomorrow.


This research work tries to x-ray the influence of home video on the life of youth behaviour. in higher institutions.

Home videos often times channel wrong information to the student thereby causing abnormaly in youth. These films are deviating from acceptable success goals instead they influence socials vices as success goals.

Most of these films are rated for general viewing and (IB) indicating that some are unhealthy children but what does these audience including youth behaviour. stand to gain. What influence will it be making in their lives? Is it necessary at all to watch home video? Does it promote morality especially in pursuance of excellent moral standard  in our tertiary institutions?




Moral standard are assumed not be promote in most of Nollywood movies and the purpose of the study is to verify the truthfulness of this assumption and among the aims are:

  1. To know the authority of the above assumption.
  2. To know what extent home video is affecting the youth behaviour.
  • To identify the problems being performed by the watching of nollywood home movies by youth behaviour..
  1. Also the study is meant for the purpose of solving or reducing negative sting lines by home videos makers.
  2. Lasting to verify or pin point some positive influence of home video.



  1. To what extent does a home movie affect youth behaviour?
  2. Is success goals as presented by the films a normal channel to achievement?
  3. Does a student derive anything positive from watching home videos?
  4. To what extent does home video promote social vices in our society?
  5. Does it reflect our very nature essence?


HI:     Home movies affect the youth behaviour. to the extent that would affect their way of life.

H0:     Home movies do not affect the student to the extent that would affect their way of life.

H2:     Home movie is a reflection of our society which youth is part of it.

H0:       Home video is not a reflection of our society which youth is part of it.

H3:     Home video by every means promotes

H0:     On the contrary promote coexistence

H4:     Home movies have very little influence on youth behaviour. whether positive or negative.


The very nature of movies generally makes it influential on people because it directs behaviour. It has been credited with the ability to change attitude. Norms,Values and perception.

This is why it is important to extract a proper documentation of its influence on the youth behaviour, so as to enable government fashion out its policy, because the advance are very active, they tend to choose for themselves the video to watch.

Ousmane Sembene (2007) observes that the majority of films shown in Nigeria are products of cultural transfers.

This we know is capable of affecting the society both in behaviour and cultural patterns.

Films produced by Africans for Africans and their ways are shown extensively to African should serve as antidotes or otherwise an oppositions to colonial foreign movies being transferred to Africans rather than copying their story line.

Consequently, painting ugly image for ourselves and creating immoral films as if our society celebrate such.

In their own study-Bandura and Ross (1973) observed that people who watch aggressive films are likely to be more aggressive. In (2008) London conference cosments ……. Its natured therefore that people should be concerned, conscious of the effects of movies in which it had been investigated and interpreted, those films in Nigeria encompasses considerable high damage. Wrong type of film causes much more damages.

In an article, the Guardian Newspaper of June (1983) said that “what is good for Europe should not be applicable to Nigeria policy. Makers in the films, industry are to be faulted for they have permitted this for long, using script or story line in London for instance, to produce for Nigeria viewing (P10) can hardly affect such a person.

In our present generation, we have films on crime and pornographic films such as “the Senator 1&2.

Though many audience of home videos said that movies are entertaining in nature. It kills stress and has strong motivation. The public recognizes the potentials of home videos, it’s antidote for stress, loneliness, boredom, depression, etc.


The influence of home video on the youth behaviour. of is very important for the society, now that most youth behaviour. in their leisure time enjoy watching home videos/movies. The researchers are convinced that there are immeasurable significance of home videos on the youth behaviour.. Every day, lives are list violence in our youth.

Our higher institutions are dumping grounds of prostitutes, armed robbers, etc. these youth behaviour. exhibit what they see on local and foreign films. As each day passes, negative information continues to influence the way of life of the youth behaviour..

This study will thoroughly examine and analyze critically the introduction of home movies in Nigeria, its goals, aspiration, movies, purpose and achievements so far. Not only that, it will also look at the influence of this films on its viewers most especially youth behaviour., and to what length has it contributed to the social ill in our youth.

With the enormous adverse effects of present home videos, the output of this research work is expected to be of immense benefits to the society in general. This work will succinctly expose the inherent dangers of exposing our future leaders to all sorts of home movies.

Mandatory measures would hence be taken and organization whose responsibilities include censorship would generate information that will make them come alive to their responsibilities.

Summary, not only the youth behaviour. that will gain but also governments, organizations, individuals, private sectors, etc. we hope that this work findings, suggestions and recommendations will change our youthes for the better.



The scope of the study was intended to cover the influence of home movies on the life of youth behaviour in Nigeria as a case study of Nollywood.



I believe the supervisor took certain concentration on our behalf such a finance and home limitation that is why she constrained us to only Nollywood movies.

Also practical and class assignments have given the researcher enough time to carry out an extensive research on the theme.
