The Golden hitmaker, 44, exchanged vows with Mike Dobson on Saturday (25Jun16), and the couple managed to keep the ceremony so top secret that even Mike's longtime friend DJ Mars had no idea who his pal was marrying.

DJ Mars took to Instagram late on Saturday to post multiple videos and photos of the happy couple at the reception, and in one clip showing the newlyweds cutting their cake, he wrote the caption: "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!!!!!!!!!!"

Once DJ Mars was finally let in on the secret, Mike conspired with his friend to help him recruit rapper Big Daddy Kane to perform at the reception as a surprise for the bride and her friends.

"No one knew but me and the husband he was about to perform," Mars wrote on Instagram. "Dude (Kane) walks in and they didn't even recognize him until he starts rapping. Her face is soooo priceless!"

In a video clip of the special day, Jill is surrounded by friends and family on the dance floor as they groove to Big Daddy Kane's hit Smooth Operator. She then appears to be in utter shock and disbelief when the rapper shows up to perform the track live.

Scott was left speechless, her mouth agape, as he grabbed her hand to start dancing with her.

This marks the second marriage for Jill, who was married to DJ Lyzel Williams for six years until 2007. She was also previously engaged to her drummer John Roberts, with whom she shares a seven-year-old son, called Jett. Jill and John split in 2009.
