The people of Soshangana mixed with the Tsonga people who were then called Shangani. I am not familiar with the Hadzabe but I know a good deal about the Tsonga. If your interest is more than a scholarly I can put you in touch with them. My fiancé is Tsonga and knows much of the history. Below is an article from yesterday’s news on the new Inkosi Eric Nxumalo. There is a descendent of Soshangana living in Tennessee.
Thousands of people attended a huge feast to commemorate King Soshangana Nxumalo, founder of the amaShangana nation, in Mpumalanga on Saturday. The function was held at Thulamahashe Agricultural Showgrounds and was graced by Mpumalanga government officials and Bushbuckridge mayor Milton Morema. Chief Eric Nxumalo of the amaShangana Tribal Authority, who is a descendant of Soshangana, could not make it to the occasion “because of other equally important commitments”.
