In today's age of couples selling wedding photos to the highest bidder and starring in primetime reality specials, (think Remy and Papoose or Yandy and Mendeecees), a surprise wedding is hard to pull off. Congratulations are in order for Jill Scott, who married Mike Dobson on Saturday night in Vegas! Even the DJ didn't know whose nuptials he was spinning at.
Dobson's friend, DJ Mars, shared photos to his Instagram. He explained in the photo below, "So my man called me a year ago and said, "Mars I need you to DJ my wedding...don't get booked on June 25th 2016"! He came to my house and gave me the deposit early, but he didn't say he was marrying Jill Scott!!!!! Damn homie!!!!!!!!!!"
In the video below, Jill smiles as her new husband talks about tearing up when she walked down the aisle. Jill looks every bit the radiant queen she is, in a flowing Grecian gown with her locs pinned back.
Dobson and DJ Mars surprised Jill with a performance by the legendary Big Daddy Kane.
Chance the Rapper even sent best wishes, in the most respectful way:
Congratulations Miss Scott, you're inspiration in more ways than one @missjillscott— The Big Day out now (@chancetherapper) June 26, 2016
To rock with Jilly from Philly for all these years has been to go on a journey of her love life. The High Priestess of Grown Women sang our joys and pains, and never judged us because she was learning too. She let us in on everything from sex to single motherhood to falling in love with her drummer...to falling out of love and being comfortable in her womanhood. This new step in her journey is one we look forward to hearing about — on records, of course.
