In that case most likely a hybrid.

Most of the fish on your list of possibilities generally are not available in most stores. There are a few stores that stock mbuna in species tanks, but most simply have an "assorted African cichlid" tank... and it's basically a grab bag with some yellow labs, auratus, crabro and a bunch of hybrids. Demasoni are often available in stores but are usually much more of a deep, vibrant blue than your fish.

I figured it was most likely a hybrid, it was sold to me from their Elongatus tank and it was the last one, when they got the next shipment in the new batch of Elongatus looked completely different.
I have seen him be deeper blue then a Demasoni with pitch black strips/face, but I have seen him white with anywhere form light Blue/grey to black stripes.
I changed the lights on the tank and now he looks like a Melanochromis johannii with vertical stripes instead of horizontal.
