Eshu, also known as Elegba or Legba, is a trickster god of the Yoruba people of Nigeria in West Africa. He is unpredictable, sly, and fond of pranks that can be cruel and disruptive.
Eshu, who knows all the languages spoken on earth, serves as a messenger between the gods and people. He also carries up to heaven the sacrifices that people offer to the gods.
According to one story, Eshu became the messenger after playing a trick on the High God. He stole yams from the god`s garden, used the god`s slippers to make footprints there, and then suggested that the god had stolen the yams himself.
Annoyed, the High God ordered Eshu to visit the sky every night and tell him what happened on earth during the day. Eshu mettles with man because of boredom a lot of times he will start fights between supergroups, heroes, villains and nations.
