    I keep seeing people mention that she’s Afro-Arab. Does that just mean that her Arab ancestry is geographically located in Africa (ie: Egypt) or does it mean that her Arab ancestry has SSA DNA (like how we say Afro-Jamaican vs Indo-Jamaican)?

    It can be added that Amelia’s parents’ surnames were Aziz and Alder.

    She is linked to herself instead of to Leigh-Anne Pinnock.
