Ths DJAone had the perfect ending to his birthday with a party hosted by Kandi Burruss & singer Sammy! Even though Aone promised he wouldn’t DJ on his actual birthday he just could not resist (especially being in control of the music). The DJAone went back down memory lane wth hits from Rasheeda & Kandi that documented their friendship and working relationhip throughout the years.
