Rashidi Yekini

By  Tunde Sanni   and Kunle Adewale 

Former Super Eagles striker Rashidi Yekini Friday died in a herbal home in his home town Irra, Oyun Local Government of Kwara State after a prolonged illness. Sources said the former Sporting Gijon striker was initially flown to the United Kingdom for treatment.

But when his health did not improve, he was flown back home to be treated with local medicine before he eventually gave up the ghost on Friday evening.

His death was confirmed to THISDAY by the Kwara State Commissioner for Information, Tunji Moro-nfoye, who comes from the same community as the deceased striker.

The gangling striker has the enviable record of scoring Nigeria's first goal during the country's maiden appearance at the World Cup in 1994 in the United States of America.

Yekini was born on October 23, 1963 in Kaduna. He featured for several local clubs like the IICC Shooting Stars of Ibadan and the defunct Abiola Babes before he moved to Cote d'Ivoire to play for Africa Sports National. From there he joined Vitoria de Setubal of Portugal, where he recorded memorable feats in his football career. His sterling performance earned him the African Footballer of the Year title in 1993, the first ever in the country.

In the 1994 summer, Yekini moved to Olympia-kos but did not get along well with his teammates and had to leave.

His career never really got back on track, not even upon a return to Setubal after another unimpressive spell with Sporting Gijon. In 2003, at 39, he returned to Nigeria to pitch tent with Julius Berger of Lagos and later Gateway FC of Abeokuta.

Yekini also holds the record of the highest goal scorer in the national team soring 37 goals in 58 appearances.

He had featured in several local clubs like the Oluyole soccer lord, 3SC FC Ibadan, defunct Abiola Babes FC and defunct Gateway FC all of Abeokuta.


He is survived by a daughter who is in school in Dublin.

  • Yekini is a historical figure on the field of soccer.He was pre-eminently among the leading lights that made Nigeria 'the great football nation' of the nostalgic past. In Nigeria we're running a miserable system that's too forgetful and anti-reward, and that's why a legend like Yekini has not been honoured as national a hero for years till this untimely heartbroken passage. At a time that they throw us bombs everyday for no cause whatsoever,we take solace in the fact that Rashidi represented a sharp contrast. He made us proud, he made us happy. Adieu Yekini, our own Pele.

  • May Allah forgives him and place him in the best of paradise, to all Nigerian football scribes, sport minister, nff and other related sport agencies, it is quite sad and disheartnening that so many comments are made now, people sobs, passing very calm comments just to make the news when they couldn't do anything when the late football star was battling with depression years back, he was one of the few best nigerian produced, he took us places and when he was down he was neglected. Nigeria is a bitch! Where was segun odegbami that almost cried his eyeballs out when Rashidi Yekini was sweeping the whole of Ibadan barefooted, where dey unaware, I m sure they even drove past him then,where was the former minister of sports that hail from kwara state, now, they make comments. God will ask everyone. Rasheed, rest in peace.

  • Rashidi Yekini no doubt was a prolific striker of our time! It was reported dat he was treated abroad b4 bringing him home when his condition did nt improve. Did NFA contribute anyrhing 4 his treament? We must learn 2 give honours when idividuals are alive! May d soul of Rashidi Yekini rest in perfect peace, Amen!
