    Default DNA Results of Africans

    DNA results of native people of Africa (both Sub-Saharan and North Africans):

    I don't think there's a thread just to post DNA results of African people. I think it might be helpful, especially for those of us of African descent.

    So, here's some I found, feel free to post any you can find if you know their country of origin and/or specific ethnic group(s).

    NIGERIAN (Igbo):


    NIGERIA (Igbo):


    NIGERIA (Igbo):


    NIGERIA (Yoruba):


    NIGERIA (Yoruba):


    Nigerian (not sure about ethnic group):


    NIGERIA/GHANA (Yoruba, Tabom, Fula?): This person says his family can trace ancestors back to Mali. He says he had a great-grandmother that was Yoruba and a grandmother that was Ghanaian:


    Before I compare to some online published results of Igbos and Yoruba who have taken the test, I must mention that before these results, I did know I was from Mali. We are fortunate to have a family history tree that stretches back to Mali and before that to other places outside the continent. We were never sure how accurate this was, being as historical accounts go. We had been told that our forefathers, “migrant African Chiefs” migrated from Mali to Sokoto; chilled there for sometime before heading South as hired warriors.

    My great grand dad married a Yoruba lady, and that combined with my pan-African mom probably give me the 40% Nigerian, 30% Benin/Togo which is typical for Yoruba people and 10% Ghanian ancestry. I expected Ghana to be a bit more, but so it appears. It is likely my Ghanaian grand mother who was a repatriated “Male revolt” troublemakers slave from Brazil, likely was taken to Brazil from Nigeria or Benin/Togo and hence the lower level of Ghanaian blood than projected. My convoluted family history is not for today.

    Futa Jallon peoples are primarily in Guinea, and South of Mali. While the Malians have several strong ethnic groups, including the Mande, Tuareg, Fulani and Mandinka. I kind of still hope I am of the Mandinka ancestry of the great Malian King, Mansa Musa. I will need more specific tests to determine this.

    CAPE VERDE (Santiago island):



    CAMEROON (Southern/Coastal + 1/4 Igbo):

    A Cameroonians from the coastal and southern area of Cameroon (Buea, Akonolinga) with one Nigerian Igbo grandparent.


    CONGO (Democratic Republic of the Congo) (Songye/Kambelembele):
    A Congolese person from the provinces of Kasai-Oriental and Maniema.


    ERITREAN:


    IVORY COAST (7/8 Akan/Malinké & 1/8 Krio from Sierra Leone/Gambia):

    I’m also just blown away by how the minor % of Nigeria seems to be pretty much in line even with this person’s 1 non-Ivorian great grandparent who is Krio, the descendants of ex-slaves from the USA, maroons from Jamaica as well as liberated slaves from all parts of West/Central Africa being settled in Freetown/Sierra Leone. It ‘s known many of them were Yoruba so some minor Nigeria would fit well.
    KENYA (1/2 Kikuyu, 1/2 Swahili ):


    LIBERIA (Dan or Gio, Mandé speaking ethnicity):

    This person’s family is from a Mandé speaking ethnicity located in the border area with Ivory Coast and Guinea Conakry.
    MADAGASCAR (Toliara province):


    MAURITIUS (Creole):


    SAUDI FULA (Fallatah):

    A woman of Fula descent (on both sides) that is from a Fulani community in Saudi Arabia. They say the Fula that migrated there are primarily of Nigerian and Cameroonian descent, with some Malian and Chadian ancestry as well.

    GUINEAN (Fula from Fouta Djallon):
    Mt-DNA: L2c
    Y-Dna: E1b1a

    SIERRA LEONE (Mende):


    SOMALI or OROMO:

    This is kind of discouraging from taking an AncestryDNA test. The people of West African descent seem to have results all over the place, especially the Nigerians.

    I'm actually shocked by this result. Despite being half Swahili, this person has suprisingly low amounts of Middle Eastern DNA. I wonder if any "full" Swahilis have done a DNA test. Personally Idon't think Swahilis on the Swahili coast have a lot Middle Eastern DNA at all. However this is just personal opinion and we need a lot more results.

    This is not uncommon. Not all the percentages found in the DNA results are real.
    If anything the Nigerian results prove what most geneticists already know. Nigerians are very much related to each other.

    Ancestrydna says the average Nigerian only has 40-60% of DNA unique to Nigeria. But notice they get a lot of Cameroon and Benin/Togo too. These places are right next to Nigeria. Could be from migration. Historically, these countries didn't exist as we know them today. Same for the Bantu people getting Cameroon/Congo, due to them originally coming from that area.
