AFRICAN MYTHOLOGY

The Gods and Spirits of Africa

SHADIPINYI

African Drunken God

God of Drunks, Binge Drinkers and Lager Louts

Normally we approve mightily of Beer Gods. But SHADIPINYI only invented intoxicating liquor to cause trouble. Instead of a quiet pint of real ale or a tasteful sip of wine, he goads mankind to guzzle and gulp itself into an alcoholic frenzy.

Never mind zero tolerance and fixing the licensing laws. When the pubs, bars and clubs close on a Saturday night, it’s SHADIPINYI you must blame for the resulting noise and mess.
