According to numerous reports and Instagram posts from DJ Mars, who spun at the ceremony, Philly neo-soul star Jill Scott married longtime boyfriend Mike Dobson Saturday night. The wedding date had been planned for a while but nobody told on the secretive Scott.

Dobson and Mars worked together to surprise “Jilly from Philly” with a performance by Big Daddy Kane.
So,Mike Dobson called me and said I'm going to surprise my wife during the reception and have Big Daddy Kane perform. 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

Dobson wore a black tux. Scott wore a lacy, white gown with a notable plunge.
While the singer was unable to keep her nuptials a complete secret, all that’s so far known about the venue is that it was a mansion . . . somewhere.
