My name is Miko Bey. I was born N'Delamiko Toppin, but my parents changed my name to Lord when I was four, and most people know me a Lord. Hilarious to me is the fact that 'Bey' means 'Lord' and how I acquired 'Bey' is a tale for another day.

I am Hija De Las Dos Aguas--a daughter of two waters. Yemoja, Mother of the Fishes, Owner of the Sea, owns my head and Oshun, Mother of Love, Sensuality & Sexuality, Owner of The River, owns me from the neck down. I am devoted to their service.
