This is take-off on what grindcore just asked. Have you been to Nigeria? What do you think about punk rock as a possibility in Nigeria?
Like I said, I was just there, and I asked my cousins (the ones aged 19-23) if they had ever even heard of punk rock and they all three said no. Talked to another one of my cousins (age 30) about the possibility of any subculture happening there that goes against mainstream values and he seemed very skeptical. From my perspective when I visit there, Nigerian society seems very conservative to me. Very religious, very much into formal education, very into the creation of a heterosexual nuclear family. There doesn't seem to be very many opportunities to diverge from that. Any other perspectives?
