The issue of identity seems to have taken the form of a mirage with the continuous influx of foreign languages into the developing world. Despite the heterogeneous linguistic situation itself, the continent has always been open to foreign languages as a means of effective communication between peoples and cultures both within and outside the continent. This paper examines the influence of foreign languages on African identity with a special reference to Nigeria and some francophone countries. It also explores ways in which the African can maintain his/her cultural identity in spite of foreign influence.
