African Mythology

The Gods and Spirits of Africa

TILO

Tonga Creator God

Fussy and finicky Creator God

Unlike most of the African Gods we could mention, Tilo likes to be involved. No heavenly ladders and distancing for him. He is very much a hands-on God.

On the downside, he’s a real busybody and very particular. He fusses and frets and gets into furious fits when things aren’t to his liking. Never ask him for help when putting up shelves.
