NYAME
Also known as ONYAME

A picture showing the legend of NYAME 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!

Emergency Substitute God of Omnipotence

He was called in at the last minute to take universal control from ODOMANKOMO who had a spot of trouble with Death. NYAME is everywhere and sees everything even when he is not looking.

If you wish to speak to him please contact the wind, or maybe the wind has to contact you. Any offerings should be placed in a small pot containing a Neolithic axe.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Nyame graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Nyame 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 Nyame statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Nyame. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
