Tosyn Bucknor is one of Nigeria’s most popular on-air personalities. The Top Radio 90.9 presenter is the only female radio presenter in Nigeria who handles a morning show by herself. As a recording artiste, she has worked with the likes of Skales, Rooftop MCs and Eva, as well as producers like Coldflames, Knighthouse, Micworx and Cobhams.
The petite radio host disclosed during a recent #MySuperStarStory session that she was born in a taxi while her mum was on her way to visit a friend. She went on to reveal that after finishing school and getting her dream job however, her radio career almost ended prematurely because she was always giggling on air. She recounted that at a point, someone wrote a newspaper article saying that Top Radio will never succeed unless “the girl who is always giggling” is taken off air. Her boss also revealed that several people wanted him to take her off air.
She further revealed that what kept her going was hard work and hours spent perfecting what she did until she eventually became successful and her dreams started to come true.
