Masaman's 2021 Ethno-Racial Map of the World (Part 1: Africa)

Looks like he grouped Fulanis with pure Niger-Congo groups? :lol: Going by language families is dangerous. Some groups don't resemble their language family genetically.
Why is that Fulanis speak an entirely Niger-Congo language, and have substantial North African/Eurasian ancestry, but Hausa speak an Afroasiatic language and have very little Eurasian ancestry?

Language families and 'race' do not correspond 1-to-1, usually it does, but sometimes it doesn't.

All this grouping is very confusing. Language shifts happen a lot. Most arabs are genetically distinct from actual arabs, Hungarians, fins and Estonians speak north central Asian like languages but are genetically aryan as can be, Turks are genetically diverse but mainly arabs, European and Asian and speak a central Asian language and it gets even more confusing when you enter east africa. Luos speak a Nilotic language but are genetically bantus, Nubians speak a Niloto-Saharan language but are basically cushites wolayta speak an omotic language but are genetically more Cushitic than omotic, habeshas speak semetic languages but are basically just conquered agaw cushites. It’s all a big mess

The Hausa originally were Chadic and were likely similar to fulanis in that they had sizeable admixture, however repeated assimilation of local nilo saharans, and then inner west africans after leaving the sahel led to the lowering of Eurasian blood, but paternally they descend from afro asiatic speaking. Fulani are originally at the sub saharan component, a senegambian group and is reflected in their language.
 
The ones close to Senegal/Gambia/Guinea/South Mali etc are genetically different from the ones near Southern Cameroon (Bantu Expansion happened here).

If you are familiar with Senegalese people, you can kind of even physically tell the difference. They mostly live in France though, so Somalis are not that familiar with Senegambians in the West.
wolof senegalese and gambians actually kinda resemble nilotic people's. They are usually very dark and tall, they look different from other neighbouring west africans. Is there any relationship between senegambians and nilotic peoples?

Hausas are very different from Fulanis. Fulanis were originally Berbers that mixed with west Africans. The Hausas were conquered by the fulanis in nigeria. The fulanis conquered places in nigeria, cameroon and chad. Thats why there's something called fulani Jihad war , it was done by USMAN DAN FODIO(Fulani man). Usmans father was either from senegal, mail or niger. So when usman conquered the hausas , he encouraged the two different groups to mix with each other. This is why a lot of people confuse " hausa-fulani" as a tribe. Fulanis hate being called hausas cause they know hausas are not like them. Same goes for hausas. Hausas are Chadic people, some came from sudan and majority are indigenous to the Nigeria-chad border. Yeah, hausas are mostly indigenous to nigeria chad border. You could check they have about 500,000 people there in sudan. Hausas are probably the most generous people you'll ever meet. They are also the biggest ethnic group in Africa.


Fulani features - small/ long noses, slim, a lot of light skin. Known profession: nomads. Example of a Fulani is mansa musa. He was fulani and Mandinka mixed.

Pure blood Hausa features - wide noses, tall, they look heavily built, mostly dark skinned. Known profession: farmers. Example of an hausa is aliko dangote, the richest man in africa.

The Igbo and Yoruba in Canada despise the blessed northerners. They believe they are being swindled of their natural resources with most going to the majority north. They also believe the Muslim northerners are uneducated and only go to quranic schools. We might see Nigeria break apart like former Sudan state.
