Sye wins 2012 Road March title


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.

      Come again with your comment, because Sye is really a new kid on the block, and has done well in the calypso scene compared to some vets.

    Great to see order restored an authentic calypso won the Road Match Title. Hope that this is maintained as the likes of Wok Sok and Sow Sow (Sour Sour?) are making our calypsos look like papishow! Congrats Sye!

    Hats off to Sye, and congrats for gyrating the bands to the rhythm of truth to justice, Burn, burn, burn. That’s just the beginning of justice for Mano. We shall not stop there. Wont be long before all those responsible in covering this heinous crime, to include Lawyers, Politicians, Conspirators to be held accountable for this crime. I am calling again on the Police Commissioner to open the case and investigate those involved. It is no secret who the mastermind of this crime is. We heard it in the Roadmarch, and it’s all over Dominica, the Caribbean, and the international circles right now. So again, I am asking the authorities to take the lead and do what is right inorder to erase this dark cloud over the country. May God damn all those involved as they’ll burn, burn, burn. They can run but can’t hide anymore, because we all know who they are.

      I am happy for Sye, but I think Woks-up (KFC) should have got the road march monarch. I personally think that Sye should do the honarable thing by giving Woksup $500.00 of his winnings. A patriotic sacrifice for the L. Season.

    WoW! Congrats Sye. Dem man take long to tabulate that wee, When Daddy Chess won with ‘fwd we go” Ghost declared it at 8 pm on carnival tuesday way before the jam finish, and he then advised chess to go ahead and sing his song.

    I hope they give you your money and crown one time and doh wait a whole year to give you de crown like they did to Sour-sour.

      so didnt your smart little mind tell you that this time the competition was tight? there were three hot contenders sye, checko and wuksuk thats why it took so long, sheesh :mrgreen:

        Facts are stuborn things. The crown is awarded based on the number of times a song is played and not by the number of participants. The entire general elections results in Dominica are counted and results given within a few hours whilst in this case you are implying that it was a hard decision so the road match was given on opinion and not on numbers of plays. That is rather a ridiculous way to do things, and it was never done like that before. If you are not a member of the judging panel please stop your futile speculation.
        Numbers never lie, people do.

    congrates sye…it was really a great song i jump up on dat song so much

    February 26, 2012

    Sye Again!!! well from day one it was speculated that road march was going to Sye. since may calypso lovers got tune to his tune, burn, burn, burn.they were so captivated specifically at Calyso Tents that they even tought that he would have captured the Monarchy. Well Sye i hope u began preparing for next. i wonder what are ure topics like.just be focused my brother. “Sye Againnnnn”. Good luck.

      Of course agree any intellengent goo right thinking Dominican including visitors and Dominicans listening overseas would admit that Sye’s song was going to be road-match. Apart from just the fact that it played several times more than the others, when you think of the song itself it deserves being placed. The Chicken breast is too carnal and breeds viciousness among our youth.

      • Wonderful

        Sye’s songs are real. He is an intellegent officer who observes what is going on in society and brings out the truth. Since the Dr Finger song we have seen a tightening up in the medical field and among Doctors in particular.I have no doubt that this song ‘Burn’ will make a difference. Check all his songs.I hope these officers who took part in the tents are not chastised of transfers or even kept back from being promoted. Congrats my brother.
