The conversion of Eastern and Western African ruling elites compacted trading between themselves and Islamic traders from Mesopotamia, China, India, and as far away as Oceania. The relatively stable political environment from 1000-1500 CE in Sub-Saharan Africa attracted displaced peoples from the Abbasid empire in Northern Africa, with West Africa utilizing Trans-Saharan trade, and East Africa utilizing mariner trade routes. The East and West developed in clearly different ways, but paralleled each other in a way in which the political, social, and economic environments facilitated stable trade in the region, as well as a distinct blend between Islamic culture and African tradition.

It is not only me but it seems widely assumed that there was outside influence happed. It was the Hymn to Aten that influenced the Hebrew scribes. It is possible the text existed in other forms and may have been transmitted to regions outside of Egypt.

Macbeth said “The bell invites me. Hear it not, Duncan, for it is a knell That summons thee to heaven or to hell” as he was a war hero in the beginning of the play and now he is about to be a cold blooded murder.
