MC Lyte is now Mrs. Lyte. The rap icon tied the knot with her fiancé Marine Corp veteran and entrepreneur John Wyche, reports Essence.
The nuptials took place at the Sandals Royal Caribbean Resort in Montego Bay, Jamaica, over the weekend. R&B singer Kelly Price serenaded the couple prior to them exchanging vows. For Lyte, the wedding was a dream come true.
“It was so beautiful and a fairytale,” she said. “I got my king.”
Lyte, whose real name is Lana Michelle Moorer, met Wyche through Match.com and their relationship blossomed fairly quickly. Their courtship helped inspire Lyte to write her book, Your Man and Your Money: How To Get’em and How To Keep ‘Em, with her co-writer/business partner Dr. Lynn Richardson.
“I would advise all the women out there that have their paper straight and not the man to start to pay attention to that,” she said.
Among the A-List celebrities in attendance included Slick Rick, YoYo, SWV’s Coko, Niatia “ Lil Mama” Kirkland and Tai Beauchamp. The wedding was coordinated by Bobette Gillette and Andre Wells of Events by André Wells and the ceremony’s officiant was Elder Robert Pierce.
“It’s incredible so many people came out to support our union. We are starting out with a strong foundation,” Wyche told Essence. “A few months into getting to know Lana I knew I wanted this woman as my wife.”
Lyte concurs and added, “One day when we were talking and I looked into his eyes. It was so much honesty and truth in his eyes. My biggest thing with dating was to be vulnerable. And with him, I could totally let go and be myself.”
Congratulations to MC Lyte and John Wyche! We want to wish them years of marital bliss.
