Kinda of surprising, but he could be an Afro-Arab for all we know. YF67509 if you read this post, please tell us more about yourself.

This E-M2 hasn't gotten same coverage like his sister clade E-M215. Some E-M2 subclades may be North Africans in origin.

I have seen 2 cases of E-M4254 in Somalia. On autosomal
level, they are fully Somalians without any south east, but they have high Eurasians.
One the 2 cases is this guy on Youtube: For the subclades start at 10:13

I am willing to accept that some of those E-M2s in North Africa may be very old, but the Trans-Saharan Slave trade made it very complex to analyse which one is ancient and which one came from Sub-Saharan Africa within the past ~1,500-200 years.

Those are Benadiris (the guy is a full one, the female is a half one), a Swahili-like coastal trading community. They are quite cosmopolitan in origin (even with Uzbek and Gujarati admixture). They are sort of to Somalis what Ashkenazis and Romanis are to local Europeans (admixed with them, but still carry outside ancestry).

The guy on YouTube has 2 videos before and after the 23andme updates. I noticed he scored higher North Africans and North Sudan compared to ethnic other Somali who don't score Sudan. The guy doesn't have west Africa, he seems to lack South east admixtures. I read a comment this guy may be Reer Xamar
