Mojo is a noun originally used to mean a magic charm or spell or an amulet, often in the form of a small bag containing magic items worn by adherents of hoodoo or voodoo, or it could mean a quality or some ability that brings good luck or helps you be good at something. Originally from the US and associated with the music and dance culture, it has entered the English language and has also taken on an additional meaning of personal confidence and charisma with regard to sexual relationships. The word Mojo itself probably derives from African-American language where it refers to a personal talisman or witchcraft charm, and is itself derived from the word Moco used by the Gullah people meaning witchcraft or possibly from the Fula word moco’o meaning medicine man.
The word mojo first received widespread exposure in the song “Got My Mojo Working” which was written by Preston Foster.

That quality, often elusive, that sets a person apart from everyone else. The word "magic" could, almost without exception, replace "mojo" it in all of its contexts, sentences, and/or applications.
