Call Toni Braxton queen because she looks like one and has officially been knighted, and of course, she dazzles like royalty.
The living legend was honored by a religious institution because while she is known for being a multi-Grammy winner who toured the world, she has also been open about her faith.
For the occasion, Toni looked like a queen in a long off-the-shoulder gold gown that featured beaded lace around the neckline. Toni had her hair straight and wore matching gloves.
Many fans found that Birdman’s fiancée looked like she was wearing the perfect wedding dress.
The singer wrote: “I had the honor of being knighted into The Royal Order of Constantine the Great and Saint Helen over the weekend! Such an incredible experience ? special thanks to @AndaDika and @daughtersofnonyelum for my amazing dress!”
The pictures sparked a debate about religion and ego.
One person defended Toni by saying: “You deserve it Toni thank you for continuing to be such an inspiration to so many of us. From the situation the only person that was confused was YOU, by not knowing the details on what was going on in this post but that’s okay because at the end of the day you didn’t know so you are forgiven but too don’t be trying to dictate folks about who they should honor like that especially on social media that’s a dangerous zone right there when you don’t even know them or their religion and next time how about Googling on the reason behind Toni being there and being honored for” instead of assuming that she was “honoring something” and it turns out that she was being honored for something positive like I said to you a hundred times. Much Love.”
Another commenter shared: “This strikes up a conversation, why the comparison to Christ for this occasion? Also, how do you know your beliefs about Christ are true for all. The power through anything is via our belief which we should encourage not force upon one another. You only know as you have been taught. Congratulations @tonibraxton God bless you, and I wish you well.”

This follower had other feelings on the matter: “But there is only one true God… So yes I know he is love. And one thing I DO NOT HAVE IS EGO I AM A VERY HUMBLE PERSON BECAUSE ONE THING JESUS HATES IS PRIDE! It is an abomination to him! I was simply expressing my knowledge about those saints though there was Roman empires they discrImalized against the Christians if you look it up on the Internet. The Pope is apart of the anti-Christ, and it is a shame that most people who is not with God even some with him does not know it look in the Book of Daniel. I am not against Toni at all. I just know those saints or NOT OF GOD!!!”
Toni is a queen indeed.
