How Sadio Mane met Aisha Tamba


Sadio Mane has been in the headlines for his recent marriage to long-time partner, Aisha Tamba.

Mane tied the knot with long-time girlfriend Aisha Tamba over the weekend in a private and colourful ceremony in Dakar, Senegal.

The ceremony was said to be attended by only family and close friends in attendance.

Before their marriage Sadio Mane and Aisha Tamba have managed to keep their relationship under wraps for years, leaving fans astonished by the revelation of their love story.

Aisha Tamba is the daughter of Madou Tamba and Mariama Cissé, respected personalities from Ziguinchor. In her childhood, Aïssata was in Ziguinchor before later settling in Dakar.

According to SeneNews, a local news media in Senegal, the connection between the two families was established by Bacary Cissé, Mane’s advisor. The journalist played a key role in connecting Madou Tamba and Sadio Mane.

Madou Tamba, a renowned entrepreneur and close associate of Sadio Mane, won the trust of the Al-Nassr player through his honesty and unwavering professionalism.

Tamba was responsible for managing all of Sadio Mane’s construction projects in Senegal.

It was during these collaborations that Madou Tamba introduced her daughter, Aisha Tamba to Sadio Mane, thus sealing the start of an adventure for the couple. The wedding ceremony was the culmination of a discreet love affair that started three years ago.

Mane is expected to lead the Senegal national team in Ivory Coast as the Teranga Lions begin the defence of their AFCON title against Gambia on January 15 and then play Cameroon and Guinea in Group C.
