Sogbo

African - A storm-god and god of fire of the Fon people. Son of Lisa and Mawu. Brother of Sagbata. He set fire to the earth with his lightning but Otuto, the songbird, gave the alarm and Mawa sent the rain to put out the flames. In some accounts, Sogbo is synonymous with Mawu who, confusingly, is female and the mother of Agbe. Others say that Sogbo is the same as Agbe. Occasionally referred to as Sogbo.
