Congratulations are in order to Jill Scott and Mike Dobson!
The Grammy-winning songstress married her boo yesterday! DJ Mars, Dobson’s friend, captured some moments from the wedding and posted on his Instagram page.
“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 wrote. “He came to my house and gave me the deposit early, but he didn’t say he was marrying Jill Scott!!!!! Damn homie!!!!!!!!!!”
Jilly From Philly looked gorgeous in her white low-cut gown with long lace sleeves and a silver sparkling belt. She also rocked white clips in her hair, which she wore up, and a long veil. The couple had arrangements of white and pink roses adorned tables at the wedding.
“This wedding made my summer!” Mars wrote. “I’ve known Mike for almost 20 years, but dude could have alluded to the fact that he was marrying Jill Scott(lol)! All he said was, u are working with her in Vegas. He’s a total class act, he won with the wedding! #djmarsapproved.”
Grammy-winning rapper Big Daddy Kane graced the mic at the wedding reception.
“So, Mike Dobson called me and said, ‘I’m going to surprise my wife during the reception and have Big Daddy Kane perform,'” Mars wrote on Instagram. “He then says, ‘Mars you call Kane to work it out.’ So im gassed because I’m on the phone strategizing with arguably one of the best rappers period (top 5 of anyone’s list)! Me and Big Daddy Kane on the phone, im geeked! No one knew but me and the husband knew he was about to perform. Dude walks in and they didn’t even recognize him until he starts rapping. Her face is soooo priceless! #jillscott #mikedobson #bigdaddykane #djmarsapproved.”
This will be Scott’s second marriage. She was previously married for about six years to Lyzel Williams, also a DJ, until 2007. She was also previously engaged to her drummer Li’l John Roberts, with whom she shares a 7-year-old son. They broke up in 2009 after about two years together.
