A photo of Mimi hoisting the AFCON trophy as she was being carried in a palanquin has been going viral for years.
However, 14 years after the tournament, she has now revealed herself. Mimi Boateng has grown into a beautiful young woman.
Mimi is currently studying abroad and celebrated her 21st birthday last month. Her identity became known after she replied to a story published by Pulse.com.gh concerning the Black Stars’ alleged missing AFCON trophies.
Ghana successfully hosted the Africa Cup of Nations in 2008 when the tournament was made up of 16 teams.
The competition was hosted in four major cities, namely; Accra, Kumasi, Tamale and Sekondi-Takoradi.
Despite the best efforts of the Black Stars, they were beaten in the semi-finals of the tournament by a Samuel Eto’o-led Cameroon.
Ghana, however, went on to finish third after defeating the Ivory Coast in the third-place playoffs, while Egypt beat Cameroon in the final to be crowned champions.
