Nigerians woke up on Tuesday, November 20, to the devastating news of the death of on-air personality, Tosyn Bucknor.
She was reported to have died on Monday night and was found lifeless by her French husband, Aurelier Boyer when he returned from work.
Although Tosyn is more famous for her soothing voice and animated radio personality, she was more than just an OAP to most. Tosyn was a wife, friend, singer, writer, content creator and an all-round cheerful soul.
According to her sister, CEO Zapphaire Events, Funke Bucknor-Obruthe, Tosyn died of complications from sickle cell anaemia.
See how Nigerians mourn her:
Thank you Tosyn Bucknor ! I cant speak for anyone else but i can speak for myself you carried my matter on your head when i moved back to Lagos ! I will never forget you 💔

Tosyn Bucknor lived life to the fullest, and put in her very best to enjoy every minute, and see that those around her had fun too.
She sang, and danced, and partied, and worked, and wrote. She smiled a lot, and talked a lot more.
May her happy soul rest eternally. pic.twitter.com/zpTq5K900r

Tosyn Bucknor one of the most genuine souls on radio. Life sucks man, may she Rest In Peace. She was a huge supporter of everything I did from the jump. May God be with her family!

I have just received the sad news of the passage of Tosyn Bucknor (Area Mama) due to complications from Sickle cell.
As a healthcare professional, I am well aware of the challenges of people living with sickle cell.
Tosyn fought a good fight.
