African Ancestry is the only company I know of that is identifying specific African population groups as matches to your dna.

Here is long article quoting Dr. Kittles which was published before the company actually got started.

African Ancestry does not quote haplogroups, which are based on deeper, more ancient ancestry than most of us are looking for. They are useful in tracing mankind's migrations through the ages, and determining whether two people with the same surname or people you've identified through research, are related.

I got results from one company which gave me Haplogroup E, Africa, 46,000 years ago, for two Y-chromosome tests, and L3d, (or was it L3b?) Ethiopia, 50,000 years ago, for the mtDNA test. This did not do it for me.

I then submitted samples to African Ancestry to get an "identity" I could relate to. You may need to do the same.
