Born in Montego Bay, Jamaica, Dillon Alton Hines adopted the name Iyah Lazer at the beginning of his career – being a vibrant, youthful, Dancehall talent. Due to an array of occurrences within his personal life, he evolved his Dancehall style to a conscious, rooted focus, where he portrays those intimate circumstances embedded with positive, uplifting messages in his lyrics. Along with his change of style, he also repurposed his name to Iyah Syte, where “Syte” is the acronym for Saving Youths Through Entertainment – just one of many influences driving his music.
Throughout his career, he has shared the same stage as: Singing Melody, Bounty Killer, King Yellowman and Tanya Stephens. More recently, Iyah Syte has collaborated with the likes of: Lutan Fyah, Beenie Man, Anthony B, Imar Shephard and Ricky Dread.
