I first heard the name Rashidi Yekini when I barely knew how to scrub myself in the bathroom.

Few years down the line, I knew him as the first Nigerian footballer to score Nigeria’s first goal at the World Cup in 1993. He went on to score 37 goals in his 24-year career as a Nigerian International.

The international star passed on in 2012, suffering from bipolar disorder, depression and some other undisclosed psychiatric condition. He left behind an aged mother who had nothing to live on despite her late son’s success.

Recently, the Senate President Nigeria extended a helping hand to the star’s mother. He rehabilitated her living conditions and almost failing petty business. Truly if each one can reach one, then each one can change one. Check out the before and after pictures:
