The Media of Nigerian Diaspora in Britain: A Study of Priorities and Preferences

Abiodun Adeniyi


This paper investigates the communication practices of Nigerian Diaspora members in Britain. It examines how they mitigate longing, and negotiate belonging in the distance. It studies their choices of media in communicating, and examines the factors that shape those choices over space and time. The paper notes that the decision on the media to use is shifty, as it is largely dependent on personal need, ever changing technologies of communication and the disparity in development between homeland and hostland, amongst other factors. Emerging in the circumstance is the fact of mitigation of distance through the use of the different media, both old and new, either in their individual variations, or from their point of convergence.
