Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Samuel L Jackson, a popular Hollywood actor, traced his root to Gabon, a country in West Africa, adding that he is originally from Bantu.
It should be noted that Bantu is a popular tribe of most blacks in that part of the continent and so it is not surprising that many blacks in diaspora are also from the tribe too.
