One of Africa’s greatest footballers, Rashidi Yekini has been through difficult times lately. He is said to have been through mental stress, believed to be pathological, though there was no proof.
Contrary to the circulating rumor that he is homeless, he has a four bedroom flat in Ibadan.
The ex-soccer star was said to have always depended on his late confidant, Ibrahim, a very wealthy bureau de change operator in Ibadan. His death made things worse for him. The incident was said to have nearly turned him destitute.
However, report now has it that his family who had initially abandoned him to his fate had come to his rescue. He is trying to venture into a new business after unsuccessful attempts in the past.
