MC Lyte, one of Hip Hop’s prominent female pioneers, tied the knot last weekend with John Wyche, a Marine Corps Veteran and entrepreneur. The event took place in Montego Bay, Jamaica.
The wedding, which Essence says was “intimate and soulful,” took place at the Sandals Royal Caribbean Resort. Friends and family gathered to celebrate Lyte’s marriage to Wyche, who she began dating online.
Kelly Price sang at the wedding and DJ Jermaine kept the guests dancing long after the ceremony ended. There were a number of notable guests, including Lil Mama, YoYo and Coko of SWV.
“It was so beautiful and a fairtytale,” Lyte told Essence. “I got my king.”
The two met at the beginning of 2016 when she told the audience at her Wealth Experience, an annual event that empowers women in Miami, that she’s open to receiving a “yummy hubby.” After the attendants prayed for her, she went on to send Wyche a message on Match.com a couple of months later and the two soon began dating. The next year, she returned to the Wealth Experience with a book about her journey – Your Man and Your Money: How To Get’Em and How To Keep ‘Em.
“A few months into getting to know Lana I knew I wanted this woman as my wife,” Wyche told Essence.
