He is of course the African OGUN of the Yoruba people.
And carrying on much as before in his new Voodou role. God of Fire, War, Iron, Politics, Blacksmiths and Furnaces. If he shouts ‘My balls are cold!’ you must pour some rum on the ground and set fire to it. It’s a rum business all round.
If you see him wielding a machete, it is best to leave by the back door. He also has added extras and is OGOUN-BADAGRIS who does phallic things, and OGOUN-SHANGO for Fire and Lightning.
There’s also OGOUN-FER, fer all the other things, and no doubt a few more. He is also on the Cuban ORICHAS List.
