Remembering Tosyn Bucknor

Tosyn Bucknor fondly known as Area Mama was a talented Nigeria female OAP, Writer, Singer and Event Organizer.

She worked in Top Radio for 7 years. Her morning live show on Top Radio 90.9 every morning had so many listeners that you would think she charmed them with voodoo, well she did with her captivating and unique voice.

Tosyn didn’t just start from nowhere, she had her hands in so many things before she became a popular OAP, such as: Nigerian Idol Season 2 & 3, Morning After show, Etisalat in Your Area, Tonyes Diary and many more.

She was that scriptwriter and columnist whom several Nigerians really admire. A lively personality and a ball of sunshine. That’s just Tosyn, and she does just pretty well anywhere.

Her creative abilities have also earned her the opportunity to judge on some talent shows including Glo Naija Sings Season 1, MTN Project Fame West Africa Season 5, Locozade Boost Freestyle Reality Show Season 2, amongst others.
