Yoruba demon speaks with an articulate accent. He has great diction, leaving you to conclude he was not born in Nigeria. He always wants his voice heard. He situates himself at locations where he is chanced to speak with people.

Other Traits of Yoruba Demons

  • Yoruba demons are the life of the party. Surprisingly he doesn’t dance much. He displays the rich sugar daddy vibe and sprays money. But trust me, his silence is loud and dangerous. It’s not a path to tread.
  • One of the deceitful attributes of a Yoruba demon is a perfect gentleman. Ladies want a quiet man but trust me; it is a trap you should not fall into.
  • He always has a clique. Friends surround him with the same features. They do things together and attend occasions together. If you find yourself around such a man, avoid him.
  • A Yoruba demon hides his relationship. Statements such as “I want the relationship to be between us”. This is enough to indicate he is not serious about the relationship. Please don’t fall for it. It is a relationship, not a secret cult.
  • He gets personal with his gadgets. Yoruba demons constantly have secrets to hide. If he frowns at you touching his gadget, avoid him.
  • Prevent any relationship or communication with a guy who still gets intimate with his ex-girlfriends. Yes!


The funny thing is the attribute every lady wants in a man tends to be the characteristic of a Yoruba demon. My advice is to go for moderate men. It doesn’t mean they can be a Yoruba demon, but it is a very low chance. I hope you enjoyed the ride through the twelve ways to spot and avoid falling victim to a Yoruba demon.
