Popular On-Air-Personalty, Tosin Bucknor, has died at the age of thirty-seven.
Tosyn, a journalist with Inspiration FM, was found dead by her husband, Aurelien Boyer, a French national, when he arrived home from work on Monday night. A graduate of law from the University of Lagos, Tosyn was born with sickle cell anaemia which prompted her to start ‘These Genes Project’ to help people with the condition.
In November 2015, Tosyn and Aurélien Boyer had their traditional wedding surrounded by family and friends in Lagos followed by a white wedding in France. The journalist previously hosted the morning show at Top Radio FM.
She started her On-air personality duties with Tee-A at Eko FM. She was also an intern at Cool FM where she hosted the ‘Fun Hour Show’ on Saturdays. Tosyn joined Top Radio after her youth service in 2009 as the only female handling a morning show.
In her lifetime, Tosyn Bucknor was nominated for several awards including Future Awards, ELOY Awards, and Best of Nollywood. Following news of her death, fans and colleagues alike have taken to social media to express their shock. Tosyn’s father, Segun Bucknor, who was a popular musician and journalist, died in 2017.
