A long time ago, there was a man called Oduduwa, who history believes is the progenitor of a tribe in southwest Nigeria.

A typical Yoruba demon is handsome, rich (even if it is faked), well-dressed (read a well-sewn agbada, like Ebuka’s), wields expensive phone like Samsung Galaxy S8 or the latest iPhone and has a well-maintained beard in there too.

They argue over the meaning of the term, if it is positive or negative and if there is any truth to the name.
