Nigerian print and electronic media were beset by a revenue crisis in the late 1980s and early 1990s. In the context of structural adjustment of the country’s economy, the so-called Fourth Estate became a victim of its own success when its century-long visionary pursuit of democracy and social justice could no longer be sustained by old expectations based on circulation and advertisement. That apparent economic crisis was exacerbated by political problems arising from draconian military practices of rule, censorship, direct intimidation, and the corruption or cooptation of media ethics.

Recently, there has been an increase in mistrust regarding the political establishment. Forms of expressing this disconformity have been at the centre of public and academic discussion. Countercultures, as attempts to find an alternative to social conformity, are central to these expressions of dissent. Books like Angela Nagle’s Kill All Normies: Online culture wars from 4chan and Tumblr to Trump and the alt-right (2017) highlight the resurgence of youth subcultures in the last decade. Correspondingly, counterculture movements on both sides of the political divide have seen their numbers multiplied.
