Abassi was the creator god in the pantheon of the Nigerian Efik people. After a suggestion by his wife Atai Abassi created the first humans and introduced them to the world. However, to prevent them from exceeding his wisdom, he ordered the first humans to neither procreate nor labor. This prohibition was followed for some time, but eventually the first couple did have children and work, thus doing some "creation" of their own. Unfortunately, they quickly created a terrible overpopulation problem, which made Abassi feel insecure. This led his wife Atai to give humanity two gifts, Argument and Death, which would help keep the numbers of humans down.

[African] The creator god of the Efik (Nigeria), Abassi was instructed by his wife, Atai, to allow a human couple to settle on the Earth, but forbade them to procreate or work, for fear that they might excel Abassi in wisdom. For some time the humans observed this rule, but eventually they began to work and have children, for which Atai slew the man and his wife, and caused strife and discord between their children.
