He reached his extraordinary height by 15 but developed a severe knee disease at 20. Due to inadequate treatment and lack of government support, his condition deteriorated. A fall last year worsened his pain, leading to his death.

In 2018, Rasheed revealed he was learning taekwondo for fitness and self-defense.

He completed his education up to matriculation and wished to study further but faced financial and travel challenges. Rasheed had appealed for government assistance to improve his living conditions.
