Celebrity Wednesday

when you tune to Top Radio 90.9 at 6:30 in the morning and you hear a pleasant feminine voice, have no doubt about it; you're listeneing to Tosyn Bucknor on Top of the Morning. she does her 'thing' on Mondays through Fridays alongside Area MAma, Double 09, Sweet 17 and the VIP kids, with each day having a totally different package from the other days. Today is Celebrity Wednesday and it is the day of the week when on the Area Show, people get the rare opportuinty of making everyday poeple celebrities for the day and it is on the same day that famous celebrities stroll into the studio and tell us a bit about themselves. but before all these, there are usually traffic and weather updates from different places across the state. Traffic and weather Updates:need I mention that the first update for today came in when K-banj, or Edoyak {as Area MAma likes to call him} called? So everyone who's been itching to hear Edoyak's voice but didn't listen to the show this morning obviously missed out. there was light traffic at places like: ikorodu, maryland, sagamu, shasha, mafoluku, iwo, iju, mangoro, cement, oshodi, ogijo, amukoko and magboro. however, the traffic at Abule Egba, Oko-Oba, Ikeja, 3rd Mainland bridge, alagbole and berger was quite heavy. the weather was cold and breezy in all these places.In Yarn Free Zone today, we listened to songs by Etcetra, Rooftop Mcs and Lucid Storm. and from then on, it was music, music and more music on the show. Top 9 Moments with Aramide:-a website for higher education professionals has announced results of a survey on Twitter usage and trends among college faculty. the survey of approximately 2000 higher education professionals found that nearly one-third of the respondents say they use twitter in some capacity.-thousands of people welcomed South African runner, Caster Semenya on her return to Johannesburg airport yesterday, as local athletics officials slammed the decision to test the champion's gender. -authorities say the mother of a Florida girl suffocated by a pet python last month has been charged in the child's death. 19-year old Jaren Ashley and her boyfriend, 32-year old Jason Darnell, were each charged on Monday with manslaughter, 3rd degree murder and child abuse after 2-year old Shaianna died July 1.-Gabon's men should go on a 'sex strike' if a man wins this weekends presidential poll, an opposition leader said on Tuesday, saying the country needs a woman as a leader.-2 turkeys are recovering after being cut open by drug smugglers and stuffed with 5 kg of cocaine.

Today's celebrity is an international artiste who has worked so hard to gain the respect and loyalty of her fans. It was no ther person than Whitney Houston. A brief look into her background:She was born August 9, 1963. her mum, aunt and godmother were all prominent Soul singers: Cissy Houston, Dionne Warwick and Aretha Franklin. she started singing in church and her talent was discovered by Arista Record label's head, Clive Dans. She got married to Bobby Brown in fron tof 800 people by the marriage ended in 2006. She also dated Ray J- Brandy's brother. Rumours of drug use began in the 90s. she began cancelling shows and appearances. she wasn't giving her best at performances and when she featured in Bobby Brown's reality show, they both seemed like crazy coz of the looks and mannerisms. when confronted about her addiction, she said: 'crack is cheap, i don't do crack, it is whack'. She's the CEO of Whitney Houston Foundation for Children. she will appear again on Oprah Winfrey Show next month. 'I look to you' is her first and latest album since 2002.there was no better way for Tosyn to sign out on the show than to play one of Whitney's lastest songs: 'like i never left', in which she featured Akon.Much love,Ruthina Atinuke.
