Antônio Aparecido Firmino (born September 21, 1971), better known as Toninho do Diabo (Tom of the Devil) or Devil Tony, is an alleged Brazilian religious, who identifies himself as a disciple of the devil, and calls itself the Ambassador of Lucifer on Earth and is therefore considered by the media as one of the greatest leaders of Brazil Satanists.

He has participated in many television programs and met with various religious, as Inri Cristo and Óscar González-Quevedo. [3]

It is also a singer, songwriter, actor, screenwriter, producer and director of movies online, and carnival leader, being president of samba school Império do Vale do Sol (Empire of the Sun Valley) [4] [5]

He became famous, however, in the 2000s, when the video clip of one of his most famous songs, Brazilian Prophecies was presented in the defunct MTV show, Worst Clips of the World and was very successful. [3] More known by the refrain "I put on fire" in the song, Tom makes a major criticism of various segments of society. [6]
