If "mid-Holocene migration" of Afro-Asiatic speaking people from Asia is
anyway needed in order to explain the massive presence of R1b in Africa,

we may as well assume that (at least some) other groups (now found among
people speaking Afro-Asiatic languages) also came to Africa around that
time.

Interestingly, the said Afro-Asiatic languages (other than Semitic) were
formerly known as "Hamitic". Of course, this terminology is not used
anymore.
