More On Tonex': Not Enough Space


It is known that Anthony C. Williams, II, better known as Tonex', created a blog/webpage for his fellow supporters and fans on, a popular online community which is highly supported by major celebrities including TV personality Carson Daly and Kierra "KiKi" Sheard. He provided weekly updates featuring audio blogcasts, commentary and even responses to his viewers. After the big upset of his retirement from the industry, Tonex' commented and began to let out his tension in a very suitable fashion. Thousands of newcomers visited the site and joined just to get a closer encounter with Mr. Tonex and to express their sentiments regarding his career move. Even Kirk Franklin jumped aboard the bandwagon to respond to Tonex's retirement announcement and his page on This week, a major shocker provides yet another stone of drama to the recent Tonex' transfiguration: the site has been removed. There is no factual knowledge as to why the page was discontinued, but the site features this statement:

Invalid Friend ID. This user has either cancelled their membership, or their account has been deleted.

The saddest revelation of all of this may very well be found in the top message on his official website. Even though his website barely features any links to bio info, products or anything into a virtual dimension of Tonex's presence, it does mention at the top:
"Under Re-construction"

Could this be a sign of a possible return of Tonex or is it just a regular notice proclaiming Tonex's site is a work in process. In music history's timeline, he is known to morph or transfigure into a different being. Maybe this is just a season of change. Or maybe not. Only the future holds the answer.

In the meantime, the hundreds of supporters, fans and groupies of Tonex' whom joined and frequently visited and interacted with Gospel's version of Prince are left without a virtual home to turn to.
