A Yoruba demon is typically a young man of Yoruba descent who has the uncanny gift to effortlessly make ladies fall head over heels in love with him. He is naturally a gifted smooth talker and a Casanova and prides himself in being able to acquire a huge follower-ship of female admirers and side chicks. He is gifted at absolving himself of any responsibility in his relationships. Generally, he is a seductive cock-tail of sweet and bitter.
