As in ehnnn crazy series! I'm loving it gan. You know after the episode two I actually went to google to type 'American gods episode 2 igbo language". Lol. I know I can be so extra. It didn't bring up any Nairaland link then because I'm guessing this thread was opened recently.

I'm not igbo but that guy spoke the igbo fluently.

One of the scariest scenes for me was when the goddess Bilquis was swallowing men with her vagina. Bruh! Scariest shit ever.

Its based on a book of same title. Its about clash of old and new gods with vested interest in america. Its majorly symbolic. It would make most sense to those who have read the book or have
rich knowledge of history.
The episodes so far is about team old gods; led by wednesday-nordic Odin, rallying other gods for epic battle against the new gods of technology. Wednesday co-opts shadow an ex-con to carry out his mission.
Filled with spartacus styled sex scene and gory slashing of limbs, it actually brings the book to life.

Forgotten god of love. The more sex she has the more her power grows. Thats why she says worship me.

Yetide Badaki: Nigeria’s Hollywood sweetheart

When news broke of Yetide Badaki being cast as Bilquis in the upcoming TV adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s bestseller ‘American Gods’, fans of the book went into a frenzy. The character, played by Nigerian-born Badaki, is an ancient deity of love who craves worship and stars in possibly the novel’s most-discussed sequence, in which she devours a man whole without opening her mouth. Suffice it to say, the character’s a real man-eater. When she was asked how old she was, the young actress laughed and answered: “Age is always a funny thing in the industry. I like to keep a little mystery on the subject so I can play with the idea of age in every role.” The answer was laced with humour, and it set the tone for the following interview, which the Ibadan-born Hollywood actress granted Daily Trust. Herewith, are excerpts:

Daily Trust: You were born in Ibadan. How old were you when you moved to England?
Yetide Badaki: I was 3 when I moved to England then moved back to Nigeria when I was 6. I came to the US when I was 12. I had a great childhood. I got to grow up around people of many different cultures and beliefs, as I attended an international school. I also had lots of relatives whom made childhood a beautiful, fun-filled adventure.
DT: How often do you visit Nigeria, and when was the last time you did?
Badaki: I haven’t had the chance to go back since my sister’s wedding in 2006. Scheduling has been really tough. When I lived with my parents, we would always go back at least once a year.
DT: Have you ever been offered a part in a Nigerian movie?
Badaki: Sadly, no. People ask all the time if I ever have done one but I have never been offered a role.
DT: Are there any Nigerian movie directors whose work you like, and would like to work with someday?
Badaki: Andrew Dosunmu is doing some really interesting work. I’d love to work with him some day.
DT: How old were you when you decided to pursue a career in acting?
Badaki: Funny enough, I’ve wanted to act since I was six-years-old.
DT: You’ve done tons of great theatre work. How are you able to juggle stage, TV and film?
Badaki: I wish I could say I was some great master-planner, but honestly it has all just worked out.
DT: Your being picked to play fan-favourite character Bilquis in the TV adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods is generating tons of positive buzz. How did you prepare for the role?
Badaki: I train. I have an MFA in Theater. I do play readings wherever I can and just try and keep my instrument sharp. There is this wonderful acting studio in North Hollywood called The BGB studio. I was in class weekly.
DT: Did you read ‘American Gods’ prior to being cast as Bilquis, or was it your first time experiencing Gaiman’s work?
Badaki: I’m actually a huge sci-fi and fantasy geek, so I had read the book previously. I also am a fan of his musings in general. I sent a quote of his to myself at the end of 2015 to inspire me for the coming year. I guess it did a little more than inspire.
DT: Have you ever met Gaiman?
Badaki: He was at Comic-Con too. He’s a wonderful guy. Intelligent, warm and witty. It really is a pleasure getting to play in a world he has created.
DT: Was this year’s your first Comic-Con?
Badaki: Yes, it was, and I completely geeked out. Such a wonderful experience, filled with passionate people who are so filled with joy and love. I loved it!
DT: As an English Literature graduate, you must’ve read a ton of cool books. Did you also get into comic books and graphic novels?
Badaki: I love to read. Books have always been a great escape for me. I’ve read comics and graphic novels that I’ve enjoyed, but ultimately I have to admit that my favourite thing is a nice, thick book. That way, I don’t have to worry about it ending for a good, long time.

Actually, the goddess bilquis in American gods is also a yoruba goddess. Bilquis is also termed to be the queen of Sheba.
The only question I have is what exactly is her power.

The series is about gods brought to america, by explorers, slavery , migration etc.
Her power is seduction, she craves adoration. Its symbolic of the modern day slay queens, serial divorcee ruining men.
