It’s now official. After much speculation, the Dominica Calypso Association (DCA) has announced the 2012 Road March winner in Dominica.
The award went to Police Officer Murphy “Sye” Jno Jules for his popular number “Burn, burn, burn.”
Sye was able to stave off stiff competition from another police officer Abel “Checko” Jno Baptiste with one of the more popular renditions of the season, “AM/PM” and another strong contender, Walk Suck with his “I want a chicken breast.”
While many calypso fans are not surprised at the result, some are of the view that it was always going to be a tight one given how the songs were played this year.
“It was not so easy, on Monday. Sye’s song was the most played but on Tuesday, it was evenly played by the bands and sound systems,” one carnival fan told DNO.
Sye won the Road March title in 2010, with his controversial hit song “Dr Finger” but in 2011, the award went to Sour-Sour.
