Electronegativity is a measured value while electron affinity is not. They are separate because electron affinity is a concept that combines electronegativity and ionization energy to present information more comprehensibly.
Electronegativity indicates HOW WELL/TENDENCY an atom attracts electrons to itself. Whereas electron affinity measures the exact amount of energy released when an electron is added to an atom in the gas phase.
