Experience
The Masters of the Ceremony is owned and operated by Adolphus "Danja Mowf" Maples. The son of a 70's soul singer, Maples enjoyed sifting through and listening to his father’s records, 8-tracks and reel-to-reels as a child. After falling in love with hip-hop in the 80s, he began producing songs in the 90s while utilizing his father's records. Shortly thereafter, he signed a major record deal as a rapper, joining the likes of Missy Elliot and Aaliyah. Today he is a professional radio DJ and the perfect person to trust with your special day.

    Book this DJ & Photobooth!!!!

    If you’re looking for a DJ & photo booth, look no further! Adolphus & Kaila we’re absolutely amazing!!! They made the planning process so easy with the app they use for you to input all your requested songs & special moments. It was so easy to fill out and we could keep going back and adding as we thought of things. We had a contest for our bridal party to have the best entrance and they took it and ran with it. They kept the party hype the whole time & played the best songs! The photo booth was a blast & the pictures came out so good!!! I loved getting the guest book they made for us & well as all the digital copies of the pics. So many guests came up to us & told us how awesome the DJ was which made us so happy to know our guests were having a great time. Do yourself a favor and book with them, you will have the best wedding entertainment!!!
