Pretty much 99% European, how did I end up with this Haplogroup? From what limited research I can find on this it shows predominantly in East Africa?

There are two cases of E-M98 on YFull (xM90; M90 is by far the most populous subclade of M98) with one being a Yoruba in Nigeria and the other an African-American; M90 is East and Central African with also some Arabian peninsula samples as well.
