At the beginning of the year, rapper MC Lyte revealed that she found love after waiting on it for quite some time.
“What can I say, except thank you Lord!!” she wrote on Instagram in January. “It’s been a long time, this single life, and I thank you all for your prayers and kind words of hope. God has sent me true love. For all of you waiting on LOVE- don’t give up – keep God first and he will see that you meet your match. #godisall.”

By May, the 46-year-old announced that she was engaged, preparing to tying the knot with her man, whose name is John, and whom she met online. The news was a pretty big deal considering that in 2016, at her W.E.A.L.T.H Experience empowerment conference, Lyte confessed that “I feel I am in a space to truly receive love,” according to Essence.
Lyte, born Lana Michelle Moorer, is all set to marry her knight in shining armor (she hasn’t shared details on a date and location), but first, there has to be some sort of bridal shower. She just had a bridal tea party over the weekend to celebrate her upcoming nuptials and also revealed her new last name — Wyche.
The stars who showed up included Jada Pinkett Smith and Lil Mama, who are long-time friends of the hip-hop legend. Other attendees included Toni Braxton and Erica Campbell.

Lyte, who took part in Love Jones: The Musical last year, shared her best bit of love advice before introducing the world to her Mr. Right. Her thoughts on the topic were right on time.
“Sometimes love comes from the most unexpected places,” she said in the chat with VH1. “Have a frame for what it is that you want, but also be willing to flow inside of that. Don’t be so stringent upon what someone has to look like, or sound like, or how tall… just throw all of that stuff out of the window and [ask yourself] can you really gel with what’s inside.”
