Here is everything you need to know about Aisha Tamba, the 19-year-old woman that secretly got married to Senegal and Al-Nassr forward Sadio Mane last weekend

Senegal superstar Sadio Mane finally quit the bachelors’ club when he tied the knot with his girlfriend Aisha Tamba in a private ceremony last weekend, ending years of speculation.

Mane’s love life had been shrouded in mystery and secrecy with a number of women linked to him and little was known about Aisha.

So, who is the mystery girl that stole the heart of the ex-Liverpool star?

Aisha is 19 and is said to have been promised to Mane long ago with the ex-Bayern Munich star vowing to honour the promise which he kept.

She comes from Casamance area of Senegal, south of the Gambia and she is the daughter of an architect. Casamance borders Bambali, Mane’s hometown where he has built a hospital and recently a stadium.

Like Mane, she is a devout Muslim and is said to be God-fearing which is one of the main reasons the footballer was attracted to her.

As per Essentially Sports, she is a student at the Cabis School in Grand Mbao Baobab, Senegal and will reportedly continue her studies as Mane leads his country at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations that kicks off on January 13 in Cote d’Ivoire.

Mane is known for his humility and his newly-wed wife exemplifies this as well. She avoids the spotlight and perhaps what is more striking is the fact that the 19-year-old is not on social media.

The forward stayed true to his promise of marrying a woman who likes to stay in the background.

“I've seen a lot of girls asking me why I am not married, but sorry you might be wasting your time. The woman I marry will not be on social networks,” Mane said in 2022.

“I want to marry a woman who respects God and prays well. Everyone has their own way of making their choice of love.”

Reports also claim that Mane, who spotted Aisha when she was 16, the legal age of consent in Senegal, has been taking care of her education and supporting her family.
