Interesting quiz even though I only got Zulu, Hutu, and Igbo. Should have got Yoruba and Hausa also. Didn't guess Egyptian because I thought they were Arab. But I suppose Arabs are a super-group much like Slavs.

Yeah it's a bit of a controversial subject overall, because sometimes it's hard to tell exactly how individual groups can be grouped together. For this quiz I wanted to catch individual ethnic groups so I just went with the sizable ones. The so called "ethnolinguistic supergroups" (such as Arabs) are interesting to study too, but there's probably only a handful on the continent.
