Today’s Noisemakers: Simi, Weird MC, Korede Bello [How Nigerians reacted to Tosyn Bucknor’s death]

Every day on the Nigerian Internet, there are people who keep our eyes glued to our phone screens as we read their rants, opinions, perspectives on political and social issues, etc. Sometimes, they are just downright ridiculous. We make it our job to take down the names of these noisemakers.

For today… it is the sad news of the death of media personality, writer, singer/songwriter – Tosyn Bucknor. The one voice that many always waited to listen to, either on the radio or when she anchors events – or even when she lets out her unique genre of songs.

Here are those who have reacted:

My dearest namesake Oluwatosin….. This is really unbelievable news but as its said, God knows best and may He grant your husband, mum, sister and family and friends fortitude to bear your loss. You will be missed. You lived. You touched people's lives through your voice as a musician, writer, actor, radio presenter and most especially human. You also did so much to raise awareness and source funds for people living with Sickle Cell Anaemia which you, yourself lived with. You looked out for others. I remember your first JEANS FOR GENES event at SWE BAR, you invited me and others to show collections with Jeans as our main fabric. That's where I met @bygeoru You raised funds, started conversations, asked people living with Sickle cell to share their experience and so on. You performed free at my 2nd fashion show at TerraKulture on the 3rd of April, 2005 and introduced me to some amazing dancers who also performed.. Life is changed, not ended.. Rest in Peace dear one. I wish the news wasn't true though.. #TosynBucknor #restinpeace Please pray for the eternal repose of her soul and her family….
