Could someone give me the origin of Somalis?

Bako keeps pushing that Niger-Congo phenotype on us Somalis. We never looked like that, get a grip.

Why are these non-Somalis obsessed with us.

Maybe it has something to do with our history being hella old. They do the same to any other peoples with long histories like the asians and europeans and even the natives of the americas and Oceania (australia and islands close to it)
 
Proto Somalis migrated from Sudan to Somalia 3000 years ago. Proto Somalis were the result of pre-dynastic Egyptians mixing in with Nilotic populations and additional admixture with indigenous hunter-gatherer groups once they reached Somalia.

Most modern Somalis originated in Sanaag about a thousand years ago. Specifically, Gadabuursi, Cisse, Bilmaal, Isaaq, Darood, and Habar Gidir. Other clans such as Raxanweyn and most Hawiye clans have been in the south for 2000 years.
how does habar gidir originate in the north but the rest of hawiyes originate in the south? can you provide proof

Well in that case the clans who claim Arab ancestry should not call themselves Somali. North Africans who speak Arabic and have Arabian ancestry don't like to be associated with Arabs but people here are pushing an Arabian migration on other clans. Somali comes from Samaale, we are very old, we are NOT Arabs, those who claim Arab ancestry should choose a different name and not distord our history and heritage.

On top of that, we got a link to Kemet.

Man its 2020, fuck that "samaale" shit, that's a legend. Even Darood and Isaaq legends sound more legit than that, and we know its all bullshit.
 
Around 1200 A.D., Somali people appeared in southern Ethiopia and then migrated into northern Kenya 150 years later. They then gradually moved north and occupied the Horn of Africa.
For centuries, parts of the Horn of Africa were under Egyptian rule. By the 10th century, most Somalis had already converted to Islam. Arabs shifted their interest towards the coasts of Somalia and across the Indian Ocean. By the 13th century, Mogadishu was the epicenter of flourishing trade routes on the East African coast. By the 18th century, Somalis were the dominant ethnic group on the Horn of Africa.
Incorrect bro.
Arab historians mention hawiye somalis in Merca in the 12th and 13th centruy. These sre the First recorded sources but it doesn't mean somalis appeared in 1200s.
Somalis/ancestors of somalis were present in the horn of africa from a really long time and they appeared in written sources in the middle ages
 
I was wondering how we came from Nilotes/Berbers if that's even true.
Modern day somalis have two main components.
- an indigenous african element (60% of our ancestry) mixed with Eurasian dna from the middle east (40% of our ancestry).
This admixture happened over 3000 years ago so it has nothing to do with arabs. This admixture is the main reason why horn africans are black in colour but have more "caucasoid" features. Our african component is not bantu though, that's why we don't look like half white mulattos.
For somali who have the e1b1b haplogroup (majority of Somalis) our most recent common ancestor lived between 4000-5000 years ago so we are very ancient
