The voodoo (voodoo) has its origin in Benin.
Indeed, as mentioned, the African slaves brought this cult to America, as happened with the worship of Orisa Yoruba.
The voodoo is practiced in New Orleans, and particularly in Haiti, Trinidad Tobago and other Caribbean islands. We must not forget that to reach America, the different ethnic groups should share their space, so there was a mixed wine in worship.
In South America, African cult has greater acceptance is the Yoruba (Orisa). In Brazil stands Keto Candomble and Batuque (also practiced in Uruguay).
In Cuba, meanwhile, highlights the Orisa worship called "Santeria" and the "palo", a spiritualist cult.
My respects to all.

Ptolomeus: The voodoo (voodoo) has its origin in Benin.
They used Yoruba saints because the Yoruba were among some the the last in many countries to arrive thus left their imprint however, voodoo and african witch craft was always celebrated in the west after slavery. its roots are all over africa.

I do not think that the case of "saints" Yoruba, but of Òrìsá.
But I agree with you, that many African cultures that were brought to America earlier (Angola, Congo, Mozambique, Fanti, Ashanti, etc.) Were overshadowed when the Yoruba came at the end of the slave period.

Most of West Africa practices the same form of spiritual doctrines.
Akan, Ewe, Fon, Yoruba, Edo, Igbo...I don't know much about Ijaw traditions and spirituality but I would guess it is similar to the aforementioned.
Voodoo and Orisha lifestyle are the same, only different names and little rituals
