It’s been weeks since the social media was caught unawares with the sudden death of popular Media personality and actress Oluwatosin Bucknor also known as Tosyn Bucknor. Tosyn Bucknor was also a singer-songwriter with one album (‘Pop Rock Soul and Jara’) out. Two of her songs have been used as soundtracks for the short film. “Ireti” and she hoped more will be used for television and movies, and also used by other artists.
Tosyn Bucknor wrote, sang, recorded and performed music as CON.tra.diction. As a recording artist and singer-songwriter, she worked with artists like Skales, Rooftop MCs and Eva, as well as producers like Sess, Tintin, Coldflames, Dj Klem, Knighthouse, Micworx and Cobhams. Tosyn Bucknor also ran ONE MIC NAIJA with two partners. One Mic Naija is a concert dedicated to getting new and established acts on the same stage.
Tosyn was found dead by her husband, Aurelien Boyer, when he arrived at home from work on 19th November, 2018. Her sister, Funke Bucknor Obruthe said through her instagram account that Tosyn died due to sickle cell complications as she was born with sickle cell anaemia. It has been revealed how the popular Inspiration FM’s On-Air Personality, OAP, predicted her death through a poem she wrote, which had gone viral, few days before her death.
In tribute to the late Tosyn Bucknor, Falz, Simi, Sess and Moelogo collaborated on this track titled Angels don’t die and as pledged by Simi, “all proceeds from streams and downloads will go to a charitable cause of her family’s choice”.
