Our Celebrity focus this week is the number one area mama; Tosyn Bucknor, well, for obvious reasons. She recently said “Yes” to her Handsome French boyfriend she has been dating for two years. Her engineer boyfriend; Aurelien Boyer whose adopted Yoruba name is Omowale Ajala popped the question on the 11th of August while on vacation with his wifey to be in Corsica, France.

We are happy for the cute couple and to celebrate with them, we will be highlighting 5 awesome and fun facts about the on-air-personality; the reasons why she has a very soft spot in our hearts:

1. She Is The Definition Of “Strength”: in case you don’t know, the awesome OAP is a sickler and we all know how individuals like her are termed “fragile” and “too weak” but Tosyn has proven that her sickness is not one to decide her fate. She refused to live within the societal box carved out for her and proved that you can do anything you want to do and be anything you want to be irrespective of what they think of you. I mean, how else do you describe a woman that runs a show from 6-11 ever morning from Monday to Friday and still has time to write, blog, act, plan events if not strong. We love Tosyn Bucknor because she is a very strong woman. Woman with strength like hers are very rare.

2. She Is Focused: every time I think of Tosyn Bucknor, I see a woman who knows what she wants and how to get it. She has done lots in the past that many people who would have thought unachievable. She is a young woman who has not allowed her sex, age, health, to determine her life or stop her from living her dreams. Abi, how can someone work as an OAP, actress, songwriter, musician (and as so many other things) if they are not focused. Tosyn is dedicated to her hustle, to standing out and that is why we love her.

3. She Is Funny And Real: if you listen to her early morning show or if you’ve had the chance to meet, you will understand what I am saying. Tosyn is ever bubbly, always full of life. She is one of those very few radio hosts I listen to because she is very real. As common with our OAPs, Tosyn doesn’t have any fake foreign accent. There is something awesome about her realness that brings life to her show and for this, she will always be in my heart.

4. She Is Living Up To “Bucknor” Standard: in case you don’t know, Tosyn Bucknor is Funke Bucknor’s younger sister. Funke Bucknor is the CEO of Zapphaire events; one of the country’s leading event planning and management company. She was recently listed on Forbes Women Africa. She is also an author (the author of The Essential Bridal Handbook). Both sisters are doing awesomely well and were recently featured in The Punch Newspaper. We can all agree that they are strong forces to reckon with.

5. She Is A True Role Model: Tosyn is a true roe model to so many people. She has inspired lots of people who have given up on themselves. The lawyer turned entertainer recently started a program “Brunch With Tosyn” where powerful and influential celebrities inspire young people to be better. She has also created a means where people can express themselves and become better. A living testimony and epitome of success, Tosyn is sure a true role model and that is why we love her.

These are five things we love about the recently engaged OAP. We say congratulations to her and her french bobo. We wish them all the beautiful things life has to offer that money can’t buy.
