(also, Ediye), a people living on the island of Fernando Póo, in the Gulf of Guinea. Population, more than 30,000 (1967 estimate). The Bubi language belongs to the northwestern group of the Bantu language family and is very similar to the language of the Duala people, who are related to the Bubis. The religion is Christianity (Catholicism). The chief occupations are farming and gathering the fruit of the African oil palm; some of the Bubis work on plantations owned by Europeans (cacao, coffee, peanut, and so forth).
