The Boshongo Myth

So is our Bumbadev i/an any way related to africa ?!!!

"The Boshongo, a Bantu Tribe, believe that in the beginning, Bumba was all alone in the water. Then however, he got sick and vomited the sun, moon, stars, and land. Next he vomited nine animals: the leopard, the eagle, the crocodile, Yo the fish, the tortoise, the lightning (who was later exiled to the sky), the white heron, one beetle, and the goat. The last thing that he vomited was mankind. The animals and Bumba's three suns then created plants and the rest of the animals."
