Cover of "Mocumba!—The Conversion of Africa?", by David Berg. Art by Hugo Westphal.

Mocumba is a spiritual being described by David Berg as the spirit of Africa in a dream he published of his sexual fantasy with Mocumba complete with Mocumba's backstory.[1]

Mocumba the Succubus?

In medieval legend, a succubus (plural succubi) is a demon which takes the form of a female to seduce men (especially monks) in dreams to have sexual intercourse.[2] Berg's dream closely resembles what psychology calls "sleep paralysis"[3] (or an "incubus attack" in paranormal lore).
