Default Tall banana plant identification

This tall banana plant is from a mat that have been growing on its own without human care (or almost none) for about 8 years.

My grandma planted this banana plants but after she couldn't tend for them they kept spreading on their own as best as they could.
I asked her which type of banana it was and she said "mafafo" but that it was too tall and she didnt remember planting tall plants. Can someone identify this plant? Searching for "mafafo" on the wiki didnt net me any results.

I will probably make a post (or use the post on the main discussion i created by mistake if i manage to edit the title) to keep track of the progress of this bunch.

Thanks!

PS: and sorry for the bad quality of the first two photos, i took them from the window with digital zoom, which ended providing sad results :/

Edit: The plant is 13ft tall from the bottom to the place the inflorescence went out. The mafafos i remember as a kid were maybe 4-6ft tall
