Legendary hip hop pioneer MC Lyte is a married woman!
The ‘Poor Georgie’ rapper tied the knot this weekend with John Wyche, a Marine Corps Veteran and entrepreneur. The wedding took place in Montego Bay, Jamaica.
Friends say it was “intimate and soulful,” that took place at the Sandals Royal Caribbean Resort.
Lyte met Wyche online.
R&B singer Kelly Price sang at the wedding and DJ Jermaine kept the guests dancing through till the early hours.
There were a number of notable celebrity guests, including Lil Mama, YoYo and Coko of SWV.
“It was so beautiful and a fairtytale,” Lyte told Essence. “I got my king.”
The newlyweds met at the beginning of 2016, when Lyte told the audience at her Wealth Experience Event (an annual function that aims to empower women in Miami) that she’s open to finding a “yummy hubby.”
After the kind attendants prayed for her, Lyte went on to send Wyche a message on dating site Match.com.
A couple of months later the two 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.
