AJE-SHALUGAAlso known as AJE
Extremely generous god of riches
He is one of the ORISHAS and loves to shower his followers with delicious piles of cash. Is he an eccentric millionaire from Heaven? There does not seem to be any hidden catch or small print. There are no up-front costs or monthly commitments. Our advice is to go for it — but do not sign anything.AJE-SHALUGA's symbolic animal is the humble chicken, due to its habit of scratching at the ground to uncover hidden goodies.
Godnote: as with some other Orishas, some of our sources claim that AJE-SHALUGA is female. This could be a manifestation of Yoruba dual-transgender spirituality. On the other hand AJE-SHALUGA is obviously rich enough to endulge in a sex change whenever he feels like it.
