In recent years we have seen a very welcome uptick in the number of fantasy books inspired by West African folklore. The Afrofuturism and Africanfuturism movements have paved the way for Black authors across the diaspora to build worlds and tell stories influenced by their heritage, allowing wider audiences to finally meet the spirits of Yoruba lore. But who are these deities, and where do they come from?
Glad they did a piece on Yoruba spirituality, but the pronunciation was atrocious. I can forgive them that once, but they do need to do better.
