OAP Tosyn Bucknor, fondly called ‘Area mama’ by her fans had a fun chat with Genevieve magazine about her work, music , how she met her French husband, Aurélin and more.
Sh also talks about the close relationship with sister, Funke Bucknor-Obruthe of Zapphaire Events…..
Where did you meet your husband ?
We met at the beach. A friend invited me on a boat trip and I was actually not going to go. But last minute I said yes and I saw him at there and was instantly drawn. We had our first date two months later.
I’ve met him a couple of times he seems very Nigerian
A lot of people think I’m the one making him Nigerian but he was eating Eba before I met him.He eats all Nigerian foods, Pounded yam, Amala…everything.
You’ve managed to Keep your relationship out of the media. I’ve had to drag this small tit bit out of you !
I’m very introverted and shy and even though people don’t believe me it’s true. I really want to be known for my work and not my relationship. I’ve been married for like 10 seconds there’s nothing to say yet ! Ask me in a year from now.
Your Sister(Funke Bucknor) organized Your wedding right ?
The one in Nigeria yes.
You both look really close what was growing up like ?
Yes we are. Growing up was fun. It was just the two of us growing up. I feel we like each other because we have some things in common and the things we don’t have in common we admire. She’s the doer and I’m the thinker. When she started her events company I came up with the tagline ‘Your event, Our responsibility’. I feel like that’s my supporting role. I’m the last born so she’s always been there, protecting me, helping me and being there for me. We have a great relationship. She’s not just blood she’s also my friend.
