This one hit so close to home ❤️ I met you in 1999, we started our radio careers at the same time and I had to leave for a while but you forged ahead and became this huge superstar. I would listen to you on my way to work in the bank and think of how fun radio is and I got the courage to come back. I was blessed to work with you on 3livechicks and boyyyyy have we had some good times T, thank you for the fun memories. Thank you for all of it. We would break in to songs filming, you loved soda so much I’ll yell at you for drinking it. We butt heads a lot too but it was all love. I celebrate you today Tosyn, you lived, you loved and you fought hard ❤️ We love you but God needs you home, resting, cracking him up and telling him about all of us. This is hard, my prayers are with your darling husband Mr Boyer ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ your big sis Funke and your mother ❤️❤️❤️❤️

RIP Tosyn Bucknor……You were such a kind person. I dare say you lived a full life. Thank you for all the support you gave me from when I was signed to kennis 2009. Filebe wouldn’t blow as big without you. You were one of the few person that suppprt talents without asking for nothing even when we were try to come with something to appreciate you for all you do for us but NO you won’t take. God knows I love you genuinely and I will miss you forever
Rest well Area mama!

I always described Tosyn as “one of my favourite people on earth”, because it was true. I really, truly loved her. She was so full of life and incredible, positive energy… I believe she’s resting in a better place, but I’m hurting bad because I wasn’t ready to say goodbye. This world needs more people like her. I’m gonna miss her so much. So much… it’s hurting me in my soul. I pray for her husband, Sister, family and friends. May God give the kind of strength and comfort only He can provide.
May we make the most of every day that we are blessed to experience. That’s what she did. Today I’m completely heartbroken because I lost one of my favourite people, but I’m so grateful that I got to know her at all. I will miss her forever. #tosynbucknor
