African belief system is centered on religion and this prevails even after the coming of the white man, although many of the natives converted to Christianity – the white man’s religion. Belief in a Supreme Being, retribution of justice and life after death has been observed to be essential parts of many religions and In African traditional religion, the belief of the Supreme Being is clearly spelt out, with the acknowledgement of spirit and divinities set forth as messengers of the one Supreme Being. It is also believed that these divinities are not created but came into being in the nature of things with regard to the ordering of the universe. This also corresponds to the Christian theology of the divinity of Christ, as they believe that Christ was not created but came forth from the father. (Idowu, 1973.)
