Rashidi Yekini may have been dead these five years but he would be proud that the controversy that surrounded his passing has not derailed his children. His elder daughter Rashidat recently graduated with honours from DeMonfront University in the UK.


Rashidi Yekini scored Nigeria’s first world cup goal in 1994.

Before his death on May 4 2012, Yekini was one of Nigeria’s most iconic sports figures; scoring 37 goals for the Super Eagles- including Nigeria’s first world cup goal at USA 94.

His sudden death came after a series of unclear illnesses and his daughters, Rashidat and Omoyeni once requested for an official inquest into his death.

The former has now scaled the obstacles and graduated with honours in Cinematography.
