Americanah tells about a young Nigerian woman named Ifemelu who decides to return to Nigeria after living in USA. This research tries to analyze the identity problem experienced by the main character due to appropriating American culture. In order to support the analysis, I apply theory of hybridity by Homi K.Bhabha. Qualitative research is applied in this research as it is delivered in the form of words, sentences, and phrases. Moreover, this research is divided into two kinds of data. The first is primary data, which are derived from narrative and descriptive dialogues in Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s Americanah that is related to identity problem. The second is secondary data, which are derived from books, journal, articles, theses and internet sources.
