AFRICAN MYTHOLOGY

The Gods and Spirits of Africa

BAYANNI

African Goddess

Also known as BABAYANMI, BAYANI

Goddess of Hats?

She is the sister of SHANGO and the Goddess of a ceremonial headpiece encrusted with cowrie shells.

We are not sure how this works. Is she just the custodian or does she live inside this splendid piece of headgear imparting her knowledge to the wearer?
