MC Lyte is currently on cloud nine as she wed her husband this past weekend.

While on Montego Bay with an exquisite view of the beach Lana “MC Lyte” Moorer, Hip-Hop legend and co-founder of the Hip Hop Sisters Foundation, exchanged vows with John Wyche, a Marine Corp Veteran and entrepreneur.

The wedding took place at the Sandals Royal Caribbean Resort and it was said to be intimate and impassioned.

Lyte gracefully walked down the aisle to the reggae Congo bands, as her friend Kelly Price serenaded the couple while they had their ceremony communion. The newlyweds danced all night with their guests to the sounds of DJ Jermaine.

“It was so beautiful and a fairytale,” says Lyte. “I got my king,” per Essence Magazine.

The couple met back in 2016 on an online website after Lyte attended her foundation’s annual women’s Wealth Experience where attendees prayed over her love life. This inspired Lyte to send a message to her now husband via

Lyte and Wyche’s bond grew stronger and soon she was back at the Wealth Experience with her boyfriend sharing her journey with love with the book Your Man and Your Money: How To Get’em and How To Keep Em.’

Bobette Gillette and Andre Wells of Events by Andre Wells planned the wedding and the ceremony’s officiant was Elder Robert Pierce. Some other wedding guests include YoYo, Niatia “ Lil Mama” Kirkland, Tai Beauchamp and SWV’s Coko.

Per Essence Magazine, Wyche stated, “It’s incredible so many people came out to support our union. We are starting out with a strong foundation.” “A few months into getting to know Lana I knew I wanted this woman as my wife.”

And Lyte realized it too. “One day when we’re talking and I looked into his eyes. It was so much honesty and truth in his eyes,” she says. “My biggest thing with dating was to be vulnerable. And with him, I could totally let go and be myself.”
