Thank God it is yet another Feel Good Friday on Top Morning with Tosyn Bucknor or Double 09 whose goal is to entertain us on every given Friday morning, as the weekend begins. But right before the entertainment and fun began; we received traffic updates from places like: Abule-Egba, Third Mainland Bridge, Sholuyi, Maryland, Ketu, Dopemu, Iju, Oko-Oba, Mile 2 and Akute. All these places were free. The traffic at Maza-MAza, Ojo, Barracks, Mangoro, Iyana-Ipaja, Ojota and Agege was quite light. The weather, as it had been for the rest of the week, was quite chilly.
Maroon 5 opened the floor as we listened to some Alternative songs in the Yarn-Free Zone this morning. Every Feel Good Friday is also a Shout Out Friday. So, the lines were opened for people to make loud shout-outs to their loved ones, and their ‘once-upon-a-loved-one’. That is, shouts outs were to be made to everyone who means something, nothing, everything and anything to everyone. This could also be done through text messages.
In Aramide’s world, during the Top 9 Moments, we found out that Bill Clinton and drugmakers- Pfizer and Matrix Laboratories Ltd have announced a deal to lower the cost of treatments for patients with drug-resistant forms of HIV/AIDS. Good news huh? Aliko Dangote has been announced as the new President of the Nigerian Stock Exchange by the NSE Council. We also hear that all is now set for the 6th edition of the annual Abuja International Film and Video Festival, holding from Sept 23rd to 25th, 2009, at the prestigious Shehu Musa Yardua Centre and Cyprian Ekwensi Cultural Centre both in Abuja. A Chinese bride, on Thursday has made a bid for the record books when she turned up for her wedding in a 2,162 metre-long gown. It was also in the news that the famed writer and director- John Hughes- has died at age 59.
After the Top 9 Moments, it was fun, funn and more phuhn, all the way as people gave a preview of what their weekends were going to be like. After these exclusive information, Tosyn signed out at a few minutes to 11.
