Oluwatosin Bucknor was born to Mrs. Sola Bucknor and Mr. Segun Bucknor, a musician, in a cab on August 15. She was sister to Funke Bucknor, CEO of Zapphaire Events. Tosyn attended Fountain Nursery and Primary School, Queens’ College, Yaba, University of Lagos (LAW) and the Nigerian Law School, Lagos (LLB).
She did her National Youth Service Corps at Port Harcourt, opting to teach Literature-In-English and English at Archdeacon Crowther Memorial Girls’ School, Elelenwo.
She wanted to be an actress, singer and writer, before she stumbled into her career in radio.
Tosyn has written scripts for shows like Amstel Malta Box-office and The Apprentice Africa. But she did become a singer. Her stage name is ‘Contradiction’ and she has worked with artistes such as Skales, Rooftop MCs and Eva; and producers like Coldflames and Cobhams.
She is the only female radio presenter in Nigeria who handles a morning show by herself…
She isn’t just an OAP, she’s also a vlogger and blogger. She does her own hair and also a fashion junkie
She blogs at TosynBucknor.com and you can check here vlogs on her YouTube Channel. And she is good at being all three.
Tosyn got married to Aurelien Boyer in 2015. She sadly passed on at age of 37 on November 19, 2018.
She will be greatly missed as she was an inspiration to young girls and women. She will be laid to rest on November 29. We pray that God will comfort the family and loved ones.
