Mami Wata - Episode 1
Mami Wata makes her way to shore, seeking the souls of men.
"Mami Wata AKA mermaid was developed from the African culture that believed in the existence and worship of mystical creatures.
In the Nigerian tradition, Mami Wata seduces men and reveals herself to him after sexual intimacy.
For women, she is a giver of fertility and protector of women and children. Mami Wata has a soft spot for women who have suffered abuse.
The role of the strikingly beautiful goddess is to provide spiritual and material healing to her worshippers, while also protecting their emotional and mental health and growth. She is the protector of the water bodies."
