I would have guessed hookerae, but as it is mostly from Malaysia and has strong mottled leaves I changed my guess to mastersianum.

Both Musa and Rudolf are indeed right. It is a mastersianum!

So I decided to self this flower to conserve the genetics of this dark colorful flower. Wish me luck!

Here are the final pics just before the big event.
