Goddess Odudua Or Odua


Odudua, sometimes spelled Odua is a Yoruba deity of love.

In West Africa, Odudua is revered as the mother of love and child raising.

Her name means "Black One," and she is shown as a stunning beauty with obsidian-like complexion.

She is the ruler of the directional and elemental south, as well as amorous devotion.

Women honor Odudua's feast days by freely giving herself to male followers.
