1.0. Introduction

Popular opinion, based on UNESCO report (2009), holds that the Nigerian film industry, popularly called Nollywood, which is dominated by home videos is currently rated second in production of films after Bollywood (India) and over Hollywood (America). Whether this claim is true or not, the truth is that Nigerian films (home videos) are widely watched. It is largely a direct –to- video industry because they are few producers who work in celluloid. The industry has grown from obscurity to become an important phenomenon which has attracted not only world acclamation but has brought scholars, reporters, reviewers, journalists, investors and different kinds of people to the country. Some of the people come to investigate, invest, and observe the industry or network with its people. (Adenugba, 2007) 

 

According to Ekwuazi (1991), the film is a cultural index; a cultural reflector, a socializing agent and therefore the instrument of cultural dynamics. He further explains that the film constitutes an industry whose production is directly ideological. What this means is that the film, in this case, - home video projects what it seeks to communicate to its audience, what it seeks to sell, what it wants its audience to understand and what it wants its audience to imbibe.This is why it is pertinent to review the home video as an image maker for Nigeria. Adenugba further opines that as “film is a popular culture and as expected, it must mirrorize, recreate and tell stories of the societies in which it subsists. The Nigerian film industry is no exception.” It has been able to project Nigeria extensively to the world; which as a matter of fact is the reason why the 

Nigerian motion picture industry is a beehive of activities for research, investments, visits and so on.”
