Yekini Folorunso (1939 - ?)

Yekini Folorunso (also spelled Folorunsho) was a "brother" and student of the great master of aluminum relief, Asiru Olatunde.  At this point it is hard to determine whether he was a half-brother or a more distant relative of Asiru.  We understand that he is deceased, but do not have a date.
