Nigerian Ex-Soccer Star, Rashidi Yekini Is Now Doing Good

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.

    It’s a great pleasure to learn that Yekini is “back”. The information shortly delivered in Senegalese press has been a great shock for many reasons:
    – In 1992 during the African cup of Nations organised here, the Senegalese team was beaten by Nigeria with Yekini who finished best scorer of the tournament;
    – Now the best national wrestler is nicknamed Yekini.
    I will also point out at that time Yekini was nicknamed in Senegal “Yëkëmi” (pronounce ‘Yeukeumi’) and that means the “The Bull” for his strength.
    Thanks God for his improvement for the pleasure he injected in all hearts through Africa and the World.
