Funke Bucknor Reveals What Helped With Tosyn Bucknor’s Death

On November 19, 2018, Nigerians were thrown into mourning when the death of popular media personality, Tosyn Bucknor was revealed.

The late Bucknor was found dead at home by her husband, Aurelien Boyer, a French national. She had died of sickle cell complications.


Her sister, Funke Bucknor was one of the most saddened about the tragic death of the OAP who died at the age of 37. Now, she has revealed how a church service relieved her of the pain and sorrow she’s been nursing since the death of her sister.

According to Funke who stepped into Church for the first time since her sister’s death, it was as if the music from the choir was made for her. Taking to Instagram to share her experience, she wrote.

“You know how sometimes people say that a sermon or music was just for them when they went to church ? That happened to me today with a song by our choir ( the sounds of heaven and the psalmist ) at @myjoshuaville.

Ever since my sister died I hadn’t been able to go to church . Yes I attended meetings etc but I just couldn’t or didn’t see myself being in a service. I was angry and hurt and just still couldn’t understand why she had to die or why this happened to my family. I generally don’t like dealing with emotions and I tend to just push them aside or away . I did this when my dad died as I didn’t cry till Tosyn’s death .

With Tosyn the emotions are totally different and I wanted to lash out at God. Infact I’ve had many conversations with Him on why He let it happen . Those answers haven’t come oh but the song about trusting Him in church today really helped and will help towards the healing process.

This is for anyone going through any form of grief ( you lost a friend , sibling , parent or child or relation). It’s ok to be angry. It’s ok to be hurt. It’s ok to be in denial. It’s ok to be upset. It’s ok to feel guilty. It’s ok to feel pain. It’s ok ……………..

But don’t stop trusting in God. But don’t stop talking about your pain. But don’t stop living …………………….. We will get healing. We will still feel the pain but it gets numb with time. We will still talk about what we miss about them. We will be ok ……..
