African - A creator-god in the Congo and Gabon. He is said to have created humans by mixing a hair from under his arm with part of his own brain and a pebble which he then breathed on to form an egg. This he gave to the spider, Diaboba, and then fertilised it, whereupon it cracked open and human beings emerged. In similar fashion, he created termites and worms which built the world into which the humans ventured as soon as it had hardened. In some lore, occasionally referred to as Mebege.
