These new skills allowed Africans to prepare new areas of land to grow crops, even if the land has varied physical and climatic features. This positively impacted the production and distribution of food, a basic need. The improved efficiency saved the farmers and the buyers money.
The Bantu kept themselves in loose political formations and never had a specific leader. They grouped themselves into clans or lineages that were further organized into villages. This would eventually impact the leaders of the countries in present day Africa because in the regions that the Bantu people settled, they brought different beliefs that have carried on over time.
Today, most of the population living in eastern, central, and southern regions of the continent is descended from Bantu migrants or from mixed Bantu-indigenous origins. Even in the different regions, their language and cultural traditions can be traced back to the time before the migration away from West Africa’s Niger Delta Basin.
