Sister writes moving note to late Tosyn Bucknor

Tosyn Bucknor and Funke Bucknor-Obruthe

Funke Bucknor-Obruthe has written an emotional post to her late sister, Tosyn Bucknor.

The elder sister of the beloved broadcaster and actress shared her grief on Wednesday, a day after confirming that the 37-year-old died of complications from sickle cell anaemia.

Posting a video of her late sister having lunch with her, Funke reminisced about not crying when their dad died and noted that Tosyn’s death was particularly difficult to accept.

“We had great plans oh, some of which we made and discussed at this lunch an overdue one at that” the CEO of Zapphaire Events lamented.
