#Tip

Working in Entertainment can be one of the most confusing things. On one hand, you are paid (amin) to talk, make people laugh, entertain and maybe act the fool.
And yet, an mc has to learn to know when to crack a joke and know when to invite a guest on stage. A tv host has to know when to cut the conversation and go to commercial. A writer has to at some point, type the final fullstop and an artiste has to get off the stage.

When your job is a stage, learn to yell CUT, so you don't play your job away...

P.s, think of the greatest you know worldwide... they all know when to yell "cut"

Tosyn Bucknor aka "The Voice of Lagos" and the "Areaaaa Boss". Music stage name is "CON.tra.diction"
Introduction
Tosyn Bucknor is a morning show radio host working at Top Radio 90.9. 
Tosyn studied Law at the University of Lagos, and the Nigerian Law School but she had always been attracted to writing, talking, acting, singing and more.

In university, Tosyn famously wanted to quit and start a band but she stayed put and instead joined a band and an entertainment company known as atunda ENT.

After University, Tosyn attended the Nigerian Law School and then served at ACMGS Elelenwo, a secondary school in Port Harcourt where she taught Literature-In-English and English Language.
After that, she came back to Lagos and began blogging, writing, and working in the media and entertainment circles. She also recorded a couple of songs.

She began working at Top Radio 90.9 where she currently handles the morning radio show known as 'Top of the Morning' with a popular segment known as the 'Areaaaa show'.
She is a top Radio Presenter, Host, Personality and Dj in Nigeria,

Apart from radio, Tosyn also works on television.
She currently co-hosts the chatshow, '3 Live Chicks' with Oreka Rhecks Godis and Anita Omaliicha. Season 1 featured Toke Makinwa.
She also currently works with Ebony Life TV as a Lagos correspondent, the 'fish out of water'.
She has co-hosted several shows on television, across several platforms and hopes to do more.

Tosyn also acts. She has a recurring role on 'Tinsel', playing a character known as 'osa'. She also recently appeared on an episode of 'Now we are married'.
She is an aspiring film maker with so many ideas bubbling in her head that she is determined to put to paper and see come alive from this year.
Watch out Spielberg!


As a writer, Tosyn writes for blogs, magazines, newspapers, websites, apps, television shows and more.
She has contributed scripts for several shows like
- My Mum and I
- Citi Sistas
- About to Wed
- 5Ive

She has also worked on various reality shows in writing or content director capacities or both. She has worked on
- Apprentice Africa

She recently released her first album, 'Pop Rock Soul Jara' and is pushing her videos and more.

Tosyn is one of the most popular radio presenters / personalities / hosts in Nigeria and is the only female handling a morning show by herself.
She has been nominated for, and won several awards including The Future Awards, Nigerian broadcaster's Awards, Exquisite Lady of the Year awards and more.

She runs a sickle cell project known as 'These Genes' because of her passion for sickle cell.

Tosyn is a bundle of contradictions.
As she says it, she is a young girl with an old mind, a tomboy who likes to dress up, a black girl who loves rock music, a leo (natural leader) who likes to follow (last born syndrome), an extroverted introvert, and so on!


Bragging rights
Tosyn survived secondary school as the shortest girl in her set! She is also the only girl handling a morning radio show on her own in Nigeria! Sickle Strong! And she just hit the seventy thousand plus mark on google plus! Yay! Plus, I got shout outs on two MI Abaga albums
