Before now, many had wondered where the little girl was after grabbing the spotlight when Ghana hosted the AFCON.

Mimi Boateng, as she is legally called made her first appearance in the sports space in 2008 when she was graciously ushered onto the football pitch at the start of the tournament in Ghana with the trophy accompanied by drums and songs while she was comfortably seated in a palanquin dressed in rich kente fabrics and ornaments.

She is currently studying abroad and celebrated her 21st birthday last month.
