About DJ “Akoni”: Anthony Poponi is his real name and after trying to escape Tony Poponi his whole life he moved to Hawaii where his name in the native language of Hawaiian (duh!) is “Akoni”. Yes, that’s right, Akoni Poponi. “You Attract What You Fear!” He’s embraced it. Some call him Fondue because he’s cheesy yet smooth and he’s known as Queso Fundido is certain circles because he’s “cheesy” and “meaty”. It’s winter weight…from 2002. Whatever you call him you’ll call him hilarious. He is a Master of Ceremonies by all standards: witty, engaging, commanding and yet authentic. Your crowd will immediately connect with him and he’ll work with you to put together a playlist to make your wedding memorable. He’s also an officiant and can make a complex wedding simple yet elegant and heartfelt.
