AbstractThe notion of evu plays an important role in the traditional concept of witchcraft not only among the Fang but, with different names, also among other ethnic groups in Equatorial Guinea. The aim of my article is to give an account of how this belief is perceived today in an urban milieu, specifically in the town of Bata, within the framework of the important changes which Equatoguinean society is experiencing in recent times. Although witchcraft beliefs are still very important in Equatorial Guinea, it is a clear fact that the concept of evu does not have the same importance as it did in the past. In my article I will discuss the current social relevance of the evu concept in Equatorial Guinea and the changes it is experiencing in the semantic field. My article is based on empírical data gathered through fieldwork carried out from 2006 to 2011 during short stays in Equatorial Guinea each of those years.
