BADIMO
Also known as BA-DIMO

A picture showing the legend of BADIMO taken from our African mythology archives. Illustration by Chas Saunders. Read the story below or search the index for more African Gods, African Goddesses, heroes, demons and monsters!

Ancestral Spirits of the Tswana people

These are the ghosts of deceased relatives and long-dead heroes. They act as agents for the Great God MODIMO, and hang around the place keeping watch to ensure no taboos are violated. You can tell if they're getting agitated as they make very strange clicking noises.

Only shamans, prophets and small children can speak the names of BADIMO and MODIMO. Any other utterer will end up as a child in an adult's body. Shhhh! No name-dropping.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Badimo graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Badimo movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Badimo statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Badimo. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
