It’s the last of our Vampires around the Worldfest 2018 for you fine folks! We got a spooky assortment of mythological bloodsuckers from West Africa and we think you’re Ghana love it! From the Togo to Cote d’Ivoire and all that Ghana in between, we’ve got legends from the Ashanti and Ewe peoples. First up is the bloodsucking shape-shifting firefly better known as an Adze. Watch out for the insects, they’ll suck the life right out of you. But beware up in the trees for the even more deadly iron teeth and iron hooked-feet of the Asanbosam and the Sasabonsam! And scariest of all some say, beware the Obayifo and it’s glowing armpits and anuses. Wait, what.
