UPDATE: DICE AGAIN! Calypsonian extraordinaire wins 5th calypso crown (See Photos)

2012 Calypso Monarch, Dice

Five-time calypso King, Dennison “Dice” Joseph, is the 2012  calypso monarch of Dominica.

Dice took the title in a tough competition on Saturday night at the Pottersville Savannah.

He beat nine other competitors, including reigning Monarch, Tasha P, to achieve the record of winning the calypso crown for the fifth time.

The diminutive, charismatic performer accomplished that feat with two powerful numbers “Stand Up for Teachers” and “Back to Country”

Karessa came second, Web, third and Bobb, fourth.

    what is in dice’s past is what many young people do growing up especially when they are growing up wild, with no direction or guidance. Luckily as a man he was able to take control, and direct himself on the right path. So, stop focussing on what he did as a child, as a wild teen, and focus on the child who is now a responsible young man who knows what he wants. There are those wild teens who never bounce back.Thank God Dice did. Look where he is today. God is guiding the King so no evil spirit, or envy will work against him.

    All due respect to King Dice – he sang and delivered on the night and it was left to the judges to do what they had to do; he did not judge himself and awarded himself King however I think honestly that he did not deserve the crown; I think the Teacher song story lines were very contradictory and confusing; his second song I swear I heard it before; ‘look me send me’ and a couple others same melody same story line same song – it happen in my opinion twice before in previous years when Dice was not deserving of the crown and it was literally given to him probably because of bare popularity and peoples own liking for him..but the judges decision is final and I accept him as the Calypso King of Dominica.

    On the issue of the judging – well COMFORTER no doubt should have made it to the finals and when he did not he came out with the story that someone with inside information told him he had in fact tied with the Sye. He therefore was very dissatisfied and wanted the scores from the Judges or else he would file an injunction. Well everyone thought he was a trouble maker now we are hearing about the travesty done to Soul puss and that two Judges are saying that they are shocked at the results; I therefore recommend Going forward I say lets have the results and scores from each judge published – a simple matrix with all the judges scores against the calypsosians names will suffice – this way we may have more transparency and accountability; to avoid controversy I say do not include the name of the Judge – just match the judges score against the name of the competitor example as that of Judge 1, 2 ,3 to 9 etc.

    In conclusion I think we can hold ourselves proud as a people for the high standard of performancers coming out of our young men and women . It will be nice if we can encourage the artist without necessarily pulling them down especially given the art form allowed them to find that avenue for a change in their life around; giving them as it were a second chance in society – as the Vigilante puts it.

    The calypsos this year were great and overall performances were great. The new comers showed signs of readiness to make their marks in the annals of Calypso. The future for the art form looks bright and Dice looks like he is determined to set the bar higher every year. I look forward to next year when the now seasoned rookies have no excuses. Congratulations to 5 time King Dice!

    I thought calypso was suppose to bring people together in unity but it seems as if it’s dividing “we”. what a shame! Stop these negative comments and let us show love, let us try to bring out the positive in everyone and help them with their weaknesses. We can’t change the results of the show as the judges decision is final! Congratulations to king Dice!

    This was an excellent show as usual. Quite apart from the obvious errors from explosion and vigilante, all the calypsonian were great. Honestly before the results were announced i thought Soul Puss would have gotten the crown. Hence my disappointment not even in the top 4. Bob was amazing especially in the 1st round. Webb was incredible especially in the 1st round imitating jeff joe coming back and recognizing people like ophelia an ma frampton (magnificent). Caressa always left me speechless. Dice should have been in the top 4 but not king. I am a fan of Tasha P, but Tasha was so casual on stage both rounds i was so disappinted. I especially love the 2nd song,everytime i hear it it reminds me of my first love who promise to do right by me, always says i love you yet married another woman. My girl did not defend. Dice and Pat- slice it, cut it or dice it, this is really one video. Let me pose a question to dice, if you are asked to attend a function as king and the president walks in, would you not stand because in your opinion he is not fit to be president? This teacher songs needs some aterations. Too our most distinguished judges, is that what we want to teach our children? Some of us are too hypocrite.

    Congrats to you DICE..You keep raising your standard higher and higher…Yesterday is gone..embrace today and tomorrow will be even better..With JAH on your side you can conquer your biggest mountains no matter in what form they come…You have come too far to give up now…The blessings of the Lord makes one ‘rich’ and adds no sorrow with it..BLESS UP my boy…We keeping guard in the slips…Luke 10:19 Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you… Let that be your guide…

    February 21, 2012

    Dice has a rare ability. He is the only calypsonian that can stir mixed feelings among people. He does it before the calypso season starts, after it has started, and long after THE calypso season ends. It is evident in the comments being placed on DNO. LOVE HIM, HATE HIM HE IS THE KING! Long Live King Dice.

  14. unfair
    February 21, 2012

    Listen Dominicans, I find it so unfair and hurtful that you all are still banking on the man’s pesonality. Shame! Shame on you!So you don’t intend to make people forget their past? Dice has grown;he has matured in his personality. Since when has Dice been in the eyes of the public in any negative way? I think you all evil and spiteful people who have a lot of skeletons in you closet should allow people to move on with their lives. You all cowards are hiding behind a computer screen to bring him down, but you would not dare do it in person, because the society know that you have committed one of the seven deadly sins. so leave the man’s character aloneeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!! Dice is to calypso what Skerritt is to politics.

    February 21, 2012

    Today, it is accepted to make mistakes during competition and still go on to win the crown. Being flawless means nothing now. The judges had already predetermined who was winning the crown. The judging in Calypso was so poor starting from the eliminations leading up to the finals. Judges are becoming biased today.

  16. HAPPY
    February 21, 2012

    In the second verse, the timing between Dice and the band was off, but he did not fall out. Only a music genius, a calypso maestro, would be able to work around that:avoid going off beat. Dice is just exceptional. He is a calypso wonder, and he has set a name for himself in the annals of Dominican history. His performance will be spoken about from generations to generations. He is now the yardstick by which every other calypsonian will be measured. Diceeeeeeeee Again!! :)

    There will never be a year without contraversy. By nature calypso is meant to create contraversy and if or when it fails to do that then thats a bad year for calypso and calypso lovers.

    I saw both the semi and finals of the T & T calypso competion and honestly speaking we should appreciate what we have in Dominica.

    Congrats to all de calypsonians who participated at all levels of the competion. Also congrats to the writers, composers, score writers, judges, musicians, handlers, props, actors, and everybody involved in the production. Thanks to the radio sations/DNO for making it possible for us outside of Dominica to share in the experience. Without you all we would be in caiso limboland.

    A Queen dethroned, a King crowned. Lest we wait for what next year brings. Peace

Only one point is lost for such errors and this could never have prevented dice from winning the crown.Your highest and lowest score is eliminated so only seven judges scores will count.He deserved the damn crown. Who else could be king? eat all u hearts out. Who jah bless no man curse.

Many worship and support through purchasing of music International artists whose lives are far worse than Dice. he is innocent compared to them yet still we cry down our own. Shame on you all.

    It’s a time of celebration, let’s congratulate all the performers who put on a great show for the people. Congrats to Dice and everyone who participated…

  22. Doctors differ
    February 20, 2012

    Doctors differ patients die. I honestly think BOTH Bobb and Webb were better than Soul Puss. OMG did you all see Web’s first song performance ? Fantastic !

  23. Keeping Them Honest
    February 20, 2012

    And the judges remain consistent with their inconsistency. Last year Soulpuss had two good sounds out before the finals and a lot of people, including the judges. So even with all the mistakes he made last year he still got placed, that’s because the judges came in with their predetermined notion to place him.

    This year because Soulpuss second recording was not up to par and because radio announcers decided that Soulpuss was not impressive this year, the judges themselves thought so and went in with the notion that Soulpuss was not impressive on radio with his second sound and should not get placed.

    Well even with such a massive performance, the judges inconsistency remained consistent…Soulpuss was not supposed to be place because the judges were not impressed with his second recordings. Congratulation to Dice and Caressa I think they deserve their places,

    • Sweet !

    I wonder if people were at the same show that I was at. I am not a fan of any one calypsonian. Who I back is based on song and performance. If you are judging based on lyrics – 35, melody- 35, rendition-20 Webster was way up there. His first song “Voice from Beyond” was inspiring almost emotional. His rendition for both songs and vocal quality almost flawless.I think that people just “not checking” De Webb hence all the hate. He needs to think of a way to draw fans and get people to like him and appreciate his talent more.

  25. hello
    February 20, 2012

    this has nothing to do with hating anyone – if someone deserves the crown give it to them. but the top four chosen was plain ridiculous. Unfair judging period! if i were the calypsonians i would live the show for dice alone to perform – then he could get the crown fairly. Nonsense – the man made errors but he is king.

    February 20, 2012

    The real judge of the content of these songs to say whether or not they were fitting for Dice would be a real teacher of Dice. Someone that really had him in class. Not one of those wonna be’s. I expect to see a lot of fake comments here from people who claim to be his teacher. I was speaking to someone one time and she claimed to be Dice teacher. She made me laugh for weeks. First of all, she was a teacher but not at the school Dice went to, and seceond she was still in high school when Dice went to school.

  37. Know the criteria
    February 20, 2012

    The people who are commenting against Dice must be haters and obviously did not see or listen to the show. That crown was well deserved. Did you all noticed that Tasha P messed up in her 1st song? Yes after repeating lines she recovered very nicely. Besides her first song was not strong (lyrics) despite her beautiful voice which I do love.

    I think it’s time we give Dice credit because the Dice from when he began in calypso and the Dice now has matured and come a very long way. HE IS NOT PERFECT BUT LET US ALL AS A NATION CELEBRATE THE FACT THAT HE HAS TALENT. He has taken advantage of his talent and is doing great. We should give him his roses while he is alive. We as human beings need to celebrate peoples lives while they are alive.

  39. Know the criteria
    February 20, 2012

    This was a great show and a lot of folks don’t understand what judges look for or don’t pay attention during the show and then comment that the decision is unfair. THE ONLY DECISION THAT ONE CAN COMMENT ON IS THAT SOULD PUSS SHOULD PLACE.

    Tasha P while a great singer and I enjoyed her voice had a poor song choice lyrically going into the competition. The point distribution for lyrics, melody and rendition is far greater than presentation, so it doesn’t help when they mess up in those categories. This is not the type of song for someone who is defending their crown. ****One has to note that she made a mistake in the fist song but recovered nicely. The judges must have picked that up causing her to loose points.***

    Also Dice did made a mistake in the second round where he and the music was off by maybe 1-2 seconds at the beginning of a verse but the points lost in this regard is minimal compared to repeating lines(Tash P did) or forgetting your verse. Dice first round was a clean sweep, in addition his 2nd round was strong in melody, rendition and lyrics. Presentation is only 10 points and that’s where I think he may have lost a point or two for the slight error. Therefore in overall consistency of both rounds he did come up with the highest votes. Last year Tasha P was a clean sweep in all categories and deserved the crown, but she fell short with errors this year.

    This year’s calypso show was all about delivery on the night but I would still say Soul Puss should be in the top 4.

    This was all for local consumption,but in a modern world,these singers will go no where.

    I have said before the songs only have a local life and a 4 to 6 weeks live spam.

    There was nothing about the show that can be exported to the caribbean or the wide world.

    The musical arrangement were unacceptable,with most songs starting with an electrical drum beat.

    The brass section of the band was to slow and the mixing was also poor.

    I love my calypso but it must be well put together.

Judges need to be fair she deserved to be on the top 4. Congratulation to Dice….job well done…now please go out and represent dominica with dignity and respect. i guess the heights dominicans have you…if tasha P places 1st and second you should be bringing back some regional crowns…good luck young man

  42. Papa Dom
    February 20, 2012

    I watched the show via Come see tv and must say that I am not totally satisfied with the final decision. Firstly, let me state that I never thought that TashaP could retain the crown. One has to give it to her though, she is an exceptional performer, great singer and has a powerful stage presence at any level, local or regional but her two songs were lyrically weak. I also think that she could have added a bit more to her presentation by having a uniformed person rub the cradle when she said “even uniform officials” and someone depicting a calypsonian when she mentioned ”even calypsonians”
    As for dice, he made an error in the presentation of the first song. He left the stage after finishing the song and came back after someone must have pointed out the error to him. He also made a mistake in the second song which led to him shouting the rest of the song. I can only think that the judges didn’t see those errors or had him so far ahead of the other competitors that the points lost because of those errors didn’t matter.

    Thanks to the MANAGER and supporting team, SONG WRITTER and KING DICE for giving us something to look forward to for the calypso finals because without the participation of dice the night of the finals it would be bouring and senseless.

    To the other calypsonians it is shamefull how you run your mouths the radio before the finals and then dissappoint your supporters with those poor performances on the night of the finals.

    Don’t hate the player, hate the game. Funny how we think and deal with situations in life. Whitney Houston was a crack head yet still ppl loved and envy her talent in music. Dice is our very own and true he have his ways, does that mean we should label him as an outcast? The next time ull listen to ull favourite song from Whitney, Micheal J( even if turned fr black to white) think of Dice and his music in positive why and learn to appreciate what’s ours.

    He sings about the present state of our economy about issue we can’t bring out to the wider world. This is the society we live in and depend on for survival. If u have a better plan for Diceeeeeeeeey, play ur part and write lyrics about what u want to hear and give it to Dice, I can assure u he will make the world listen and maybe then allu u haters will feel some how content. Stop the hating, all the back biting.

      Whitney sold 170 million albums, singles, videos etc..how many did Dice sell again? Please make a fair comparison. It is not about hating; it is about change for the better. I want to see improvement in Dominica’s music. The Calypso Show and the calypsonians are in the perfect position to spearhead that change. Instead of doing that, they are all talking about the same old thing and even worse, their composition, lyrics even simple rhyming for some of them stinks. That is not going to place our calypso anywhere else besides Roseau.. Can’t cross the waters.

    February 20, 2012

    As someone put it … there is no point commenting on the various placements because they are both final and subjective. I am nearly 50 now and have been a big fan of calypso since 5 or 6 so I do not this these judges are any more qualified than most of us. The Calypso Association has a good method to weed out terrible judges but I think it is now time to look at the whole system. I say this because (and maybe it was always like this) I think more fans would disagree with the results than agree with them. (that is not to say that a majority would pick any of the finalists … the show was that good … the first two knocked themselves out at the beginning but all the others put up a good fight). To give some legitimacy to the results it is now time for the Association to give the fans some say. Points should be able to be awarded for sales of mp3 downloads, voting by text message on the night(Give double point to a fan voting from inside the show itself … it is all possible) . They could increase interactivity by announcing 1st half results .. any number of things … but GIVE FANS A SAY. Since you ask .. Bobb would have been in my top 2 , Tasha P in the Top 3. Karessa would have been my monarch. Fave calypo of the season “Inside Out” … can’t stop singing it … very infectious!

    Personally I believe that the Soul Puss was short-changed by the judges. He really gave a sparkling performance. Some pundits claim that his agricultural song was not lyrically tight, however I insist that this excuse pales in comparison to the technical shortcomings some competitors presented.

    In the end Mr. Dice has aachieved the throne and big up to him. He had some memorable songs. I want to appeal to all concerned to ENSURE that he gets as much exposure as his title deserve, specially regionally.

    Tasha won once and she got to represent d/ca twice. Whilst dice won 4 previous monarchies and many-a-road march title, yet he has yet been seen fit to represent outside of the carnival city. Thats a downright SHAME on all involved.

    This was a very boring calypso season. There were too many songs focusing on the same theme: bashing the government; very little variety lyrically. Calysonians need lessons in songwriting and music composition. Can our calypsonians mentor young children? Can they teach the art form in schools? A true calypsonian must know how to compose both lyrics and melody, must be able to train others, must be knowledgeable of the history of calypso, must be able to perform at a regional and international level with songs that are relevant beyond Dominica’s shores. Who in this year’s competition could stand this test?

      Hey Jaime

      As my grandmother used to say.. “lespwa mal papai”. Dream on boug..next world , next life. Not now. 90 % of those guys singing there dont cannot and will never be able to write their own songs and depend on the “writers” for the material. They are now and will always be only “performers”.Trust me, I spent a lot of years in that business and so it is and so it shall be for a long time to come.

      Ironically, the Calypso Association has on many occasions organized workshops and very few of those calypsonians show up for the workshop. They are just not interested so the business will always be dependent on the few “professional” writers who are then able to in one way or the other impose their biases.

      You want them guys to be mentors, teachers, writers, composers, trainers, historians and regional and international performers all in one!!!!! Man that is a lot to ask for. My suggestion is to just enjoy the calypso sewo and roro for the short time that it last every year

      Change will probably come, “me’ pah apwe’zan nuh”

    first of all i would like to say congrats to my son for his accomplishment last night and over the years. thanks to pat for your great work with my son god bless i thank all the fans you all played a great role in my son’s accomplishment may god bless you all. i also want to thank the critics coz while they critisizing we took note oberve and did changes to what need to be changed and trample on the negative in jesus name coz dennison has a praying family and fans that are really pray worriers, and god will continue to build hedges around you dennison that the enemy will not find you, cause none of us are perfect but we need to look at each other perfectly, without judging each other because this world is out rest stop and while we are in transit our missions is to love show kindness to our neigbours and to help those that lack what we got,we need that report in to other have a safe flight to our detination, and to the critics what will your report say? will it say that when u met dice he had faults because he was not perfect, did you judge him or did you help him? WHAT WILL YOUR ANSEWR BE?? lets not put a stone in our brothers way coz we or our kids or persons we love might fall on it, dice is talented its obvious let him enjoy it .
    AFTER ALL WE CANT TAKE OUR HANDS AND COVER THE SUN
    WHAT IS TO BE WILL BE, and if you follow dice there is great changes over the years.
    all of us a specially craft their is no two alike find yours and enjoy it but if we spend time planning and PLOTING against someone elses your time will pass by and when you live this place there will be NO FOOT PRINT TO SAY THAT YOU WERE THERE coz you were too busy looking at someone elses faults let pray one for another
    thank you all

    may god bless you all

      Pray harder that he will be a good representative for the praying family that he has. We can only comment on what we see. The poor behavior that Dennison Joseph puts out to the public. Public disgrace.

      Pray that when he goes to NYC they do not arrest him for smoking publicly and fighting publicly as well.

        February 22, 2012

        Can you all let the past be in the past? How many times are you all going to speak about this NYC incident? Do you have no faults? Allow a young man who is trying to change his life the opportunity to do so.
        At the end of the day if he behaves good or bad is we as Dcans that get the spoken about. Stop dwelling on the negative and encourage him to do better.
        Like his song said…he who has no faults, cast the first stone.

        BTW why criticize what his mother said…before he is a performer, he is her son so allow her to suuport and love her son how she sees fit. At the end of it all, she is his MOTHER so respect that and stop all the hate and negative comments.

        Congratulations to Dice and let the young man be!!!

    Soul Puss should have won the crown. He had two good songs and did a fantastic job on stage

  58. JB
    February 19, 2012

    Dice, in my opinion had the two best songs in the compitition when it comes to lyrics. He was obviously suffering from a soar voice on the night and actually came in too late on the second verse of his second song.

    That he was crowned king is testament to the good lyrics in his songs and his ability to perform creditably given his handicap on the night.

    Given the above and taking into consideration Soul Pouss excellent delivery of his both songs, I am at at lost to understand how Soul Pouss did not make it to the top four.

    DICE, Soul Pouss, Bobb and Karessa were the top four on the night. We may all be able to argue for anyone of these four to be crowned king. But for Soul Puss not to even appear in the top four and for WEBB to place above the BOBB tells me that something was wrong with the scoring.

    • takeof the mask
      February 22, 2012

      The judging was fair. Bob and Webb may have been 1 point apart. Sould Pss should have tied in the 4th place.Probably he came 5th. They said a few of his words were not clear. Wonder is he moved his head off the mike. Well, better luck for next time.

    Well if the Judges are like Ossie Lewis, Dice will always be King regardless!!

    Poor BOB was shocked at his position.
    No regard for SOULPUSS. Alas alas!

  61. Priska D
    February 19, 2012

    O.K!! my turn now. Fist of all, I wish some of you guys would quit referring the young man as GANGSTER KING. This sounds so very ridiculous and doesn’t help promoting our country. If he is constantly being hailed as such, this spells an uncouth and disrespectful individual who has no respect for the law hence making him very much unworthy to be sent out as an ambassador of our country. We have too much going on in this country. Don’t allow the outside world to think of us as a bunch of dysfunctional people.
    Secondly, I think of Dice as vocally talented but I’m not to big on all that jumping up and down on the stage in the name of performance and some if not most of the jumpy and spicy calypsos we love to jump up to echoes the simplest content. This causes calypso lovers to loose focus hence not appreciating the ones less hot yet carrying a positive message to loose popularity or to a certain extent even their rightful place.
    The calypsonians Darryl Bobb and Soul Puss come to my mind. Their calypsos have fallen in the category of what I call Calypso straight from the heart. Some others over the years fitting that category would include last year’s rendition by the explosion….”Look now the ash falling down”, that same year, Bobb’s “back to the drawing board” and Dice’s Ten commandments of calypso. Others dating further back would also include, De Brakes “Between you and me”, “Malayway”, De Hurricane’s “Come back Hurricane” and our famous Pat De Musician’s ‘They don’t know” (a favorite of mine). Those among others were the calypsos that brought out a powerful message yet were not what I considered to be jumpy.
    Mr Bobb is also a very well talented calypsonian but I think he hasn’t been given a fair chance at the finals for years now. In my opinion, he should have been lifted two steps higher and Soul Puss should have been where he had been placed. I don’t have any ties with Caressa it is no secret that he is quite the performer but the brother needs to upgrade the level of his songs. Too much kaka or beff in one lavway. (according to Mighty DBS).
    It is pointless that for me to comment on the judges decision as it is final. But if we want to take Calypso to bigger men thing, I hope that those judges rule in all fairness. If not, at the end of every ruling at all future competitions we will just keep on getting on in a children maylay fighting about whose time it should have been.
    Thanks DNO for the privilege to share my comment. Much love and peace to all and congratulations to KING DICE.

      February 20, 2012

      well your comment was shared and you have no idea what you speak of. I know and I have made my own research according to the explainantion givem by the writter and compsoer of the Calypso Gangsta King which differs in spelling and meaning to Gangster. The later being a criminal and memebr oif a criminal gang. The Gangsta King Calypso is not saying that Dice is a Gnagster, its because both are pronounced the same way. Gangsta Rap is a type of Rap Music where the lyrics are mostlty about life in the US ghetto AND against Government or any Authority, and according to the writter in Dominica, Calypso is our Rap and Dice does perform alot of Calypsos with Lyrics against Government and being a performer who always represents issues of the Ghetto Youths in Dominica, so came the devbelopment of the title of that Calypso. It is not calling Dice a Gnagster, so people who doing this do not understand the writters view at all. Its just like Animal Fram, done by Pat years ago, it does not mean that the people he wrote about are animals but he compares their antics and their actions as that of certian animals on a farm. Its not to be taken literally at all. This is Calypso, I am a huge Dice fan and at first I was concerned but when Pellam sent in his explanation I did by research and got a Collins Dictionary and also google Gangsta Rap myslef and I now undrstand how he came up with that calypso title and its a good Calypso. The writter also calls Dice HIS MAJESTY IN THE SAME CALYPSO.

    I am appalled at some of these comments. Why is it that we are so much into tearing down our people. Dice is a great performer. He is a great singer. That, no one can take away from him. It is his gift to the world. He is not the same “character” that graced the stage some years ago. He is trying and i think succeeding in setting his life right. But some of us would rather he stayed down. shame on us. You want to crucify
    Dice, but others doing much worse than he, you pat them on the back.
    For those of us questioning the non inclusion of soul puss, i am waitng to see the show on tv, but i am almost sure its because he mumbled through a few of his lines.
    Give people the same chances that you would expect to be given. It is really sad than you all are wanting to bring down such a magnificent talent and that is not to take away from Tasha P, she too has a beautiful voice. Learn to give people their flowers while they are alive….to periphrases Web, who can also sing.

    I really do love Calypso and I take interest in both tents the moment the season started . But to be totally honest this was one of the most boring Calypso Monarch in the last 5 years . The show lacked Variety .. It was just plain blah !! The Judges did a so so job .. The Calypso association need to do better in selecting who will be judging the show .

    But why all you hate the King so? Is not Dicey that crown himself. The man had the best lyrics, melody and everything else the judges were looking for in the calypsoes. Soul Puss on the other hand may have performed better but when looking at the other aspects he was easily defeated

        this time around…the band. And one point of could never hurt the superstar; he is so way above the rest.

        tThe competition is so tough and all the performsers are usually good. I think there should be a fifth position. Soul-puss was okay. Would do very well in the church choir. Voice too melodious for calypso. Tasha P has the harsh type of calypso voice but she was too aggressive on the stage (-20p). I would put explosion and vigilate before her despite their mistakes.

    February 19, 2012

    Overall the calypso finals were exciting and entertaining although things got off to a rocky start……the first performance was lack lustre and reminiscent of a fart…….the ‘pits’
    I was rather perturbed about what seemed to be transpiring throughout the calypso finals…….outright copying of the ideas of others……the vilest offenders were as follows:
    Karessa-with his song who will care for me boldly copied lines from Bob’s song and showed utter disrespect for Vigilant’s plight as a young man by using the title of his song to try to erase the heart and soul of this young man’s emotional and needless to say touching performance, used a pit toilet-Black Diamond-spoke about showing gratitude- Dice- perhaps he needs to be dealt with by Rose with her shoes for this shameful display which I guess was applauded by the judges who awarded him second place –such hypcracy!
    He talked about politician stealing and injuring….. his performances were by their very content injurious……
    The Calypso association needs to introduce steep penalties for this crime- as it really impacts on the art form….
    Tasha P- oh my I am loss for words but all that comes to mind was shame, shame ,shame perhaps calypso is indeed “Big man thing”-a place for creativity- not blatant use of one or two lines of the songs of your competition roped together by a few “ pampatititamtamtitiiiiis……. At least the judges deserve some kudos here they saw through the “mask” and the creeping and crawling- and the stealing-it was not cradle robbing but lyrics robbing….incidentally, I was struck that Alvin did not bring up how ironical her first song was-it was outdated and frankly laughable….……she made reference to rolling Dice-I guess to the thrown to be welcome by his queen from the Kalinago Territory – two young people from the country getting what they truly deserve RESPECT…..

    • Where were you
      February 20, 2012

      Apparently you did not keep up with the happenings in Dominica for the past year. Karessa’s songs are about the issues in Dominica. Pit toilet in his song is a different content from the pit toilet in Black Diamonds song. Also his song about caring is about caring for children not homeless.

      You are writing as if he just made his songs. Seriously in order for some of us to comment about calypso we will first need to be familiar with the happenings around the country first.

      Or better still…..Just ask!

    Watch the show; it was a great show. The judges picked Dice as their King, but I did not think he was the best Performer last night. Two very powerful songs, but since he and Karessa were the top two, Karessa should have been crowned king. Dice himself looked very surprised that he was in the top 4 much less to be crowned King. My top 4 would have been Karessa, Sye, Bob and Checko.

    Then again I am not a judge. Just my humble opinion. Nonetheless congratulations to Dice for being judged the 2012 Calypso Monarch of Dominica..

    DA I Dere!!!

    February 19, 2012

    All the presentations appear fitting for each competitor’s song and everyone should have been given full marks for that component. What separated the best is actual performance, lyrics and diction, melody and relevance and current issues as topic. I listened via internet radio and having viewed these photos I was disappointed in Ozzie’s and Alvin’s coverage of the show. They did not give a very good account of each performance and presentation. I was disappointed in Alvin who has been listening to Dice’s song Teacher for weeks prior to the finals and chose the day of the finals to say that Skeritt was a teacher and made reference to the irony of the song. He totally missed the message of the song.
    A good teacher is more than just one who teaches the content of the subject matter…. it is one who is also a good role model for the students/learners. Alvin seems to have some personal issues where Dice is concerned and it comes across when he is part of the broadcasting panel. Ozzie on the other hand is honest and rightfully gives Dice his credits. His frustration with Alvin was apparent at the end of the broadcast where he became emotional and I venture to say disgusted by Alvin’s non-chalant response to the resounding success of a talented young Dominican who despite many barriers is indeed a King- a stalwart in the calypso field. He outshone the other competitors by far and so was deserving of the crown.
    The rest of the judging was a farce… it seemed that the judges were confused about what constitutes a good calypso and good performance and they were obviously duped by Karessa’s screeching and parading and they failed to get the true essence of Bob’s beautifully rendered feast to “the ears” again Bob has been wronged-His best performance tossed “like pearls to pigs”………
    The Web had no business being in the top five and maybe it was again further evidence of distraction on the part of the judges who seemed more impressed with the Sisserou Singers and Ophelia receiving her flowers.
    This competition was an indictment on the ability of the panel of judges-common citizens- to show transparency and fairness……Is this what Dominica has become????

    • kib
      February 19, 2012

      we seemed to have been listening to two different broadcasts since the claims against Alvin you made were superflous and unwarranted. You must have also been given your own judging criteria by the association, one which the judges were not given a “fair” chance to utilize and I say that with sarcasm. The show was a good one….. no a great one, who won won, who placed placed. Enough of the ignorance!

    • Where were you
      February 20, 2012

      You know your account of the commentary is correct just back to front. We all know that Ossie is very, very bias towards Dice. Dice can walk on stage, say Dice again and walk off and Ossie will think he deserves to be king. Alvin on the other hand, judges the songs not the calypsonian or the writer.

      When it was down to just Dice and Karessa Ossie was convinced Karessa had won, thus the reason for his getting emotional.

      But wait, how many teachers did Dice disrespect in his time? Was he a good student? Just thought I would ask.

      We all know that Ossie is biased towards DIce. That song Teacher needs to be disected because if you are saying don’t talk about the person but the profession, then why is Dice encouraging us not to pay respect to the Office of Prime Minister and the Office of the President? Is the Office a person?

    As a a lover of Calypso and a Judge of Calypso competitions for many years, I continue to follow the development of Calypso in Dominica with interest. Listening to the performances from where I am in Atlanta, I was perplexed at the final decision. From what I heard on that night and from the description of the presentations from Alvin and Ossie, it seemed pretty clear that only one competitor “sang” two calypsos that had all the elements of good calypso/socca on that night. This Calypsonian was “The Bobb”. This decision has done a great disservice to The Bobb and to Competitive calypso in Dominica.
    Congratulations to King Dice! You are not to be blamed for the outcome.

    If I had my way i think no one won this crown.

    The songs were not lyrically matching. How on earth a guy uses a line from Peter Paul and Mary an place in a calypso finals.

    This final was way off line. By the way some one needs to tell Carlise Jn Baptiste to stay off the radio with his cheap commentary.

    From singers number three (3) to ten (10) he kept saying this was a splendid performance.

    The audio from the the radio said a different think all to together. The Calypso singers went off key many a times.

    I was not impress with any of the singers. This was a calypso finals and not a tent.

    In the tent you can hum,you can change words for word sake,but in the finals yours must be airtight.

    I cannot recommend any of my caribbean friends to try to see or hear this.

    Sad Day For D/A Calypso
    “You Done Know” “De Getto Yout’s Dem”. Non-patriotic adopted Jamaican Talk, bad talking D/A government, politicans and leaders yet profiting from what our country offers. Gangster style KING DICE get real.
    DICE again my foot. Unfearly given a crown. Unprofessionally emotional OSIE LEWIS even ALVIN KNIGHT left early.
    Our calypso songs and art will always stay on island.
    Our bands and groups will always play in small rented halls and church basements on so called Canadian and American tours.
    If this nonsence doesn’t stop!

    Congratulations to the 5 time Calypso Monarch, the Dice. Good work. Record breaking. Will he be given a full sholarship in music and the art form; so that he can teach the music language at the college, schools-secobary and primary levels.
    He is sooooo good. Well, well ,well, son of the soil. Dominica is lucky. Keep your head high.Smile :lol:

        DO YOU KNOW THAT THERE ARE PERSONS WHO HAVE DONE WELL FOR THEMSELVES. THEY HAVE NOT COMPLETED HIGH SCHOOL, NO FIRST DEGREE, BUT THEY HAVE MASTERS. ALSO, THERE ARE PEOPLE WITH NO HIGH SCHOOL BACKGROUND WITH DEGREES-CAN BE SPORTS-CAN BE MUSIC OR WHATEVER. A GOOD RECOMMENDATION AND EXPERIENCE CAN GO A LONG WAY. THERE IS A NEED FOR CALYPSO AND MUSIC TO BE TAUGHT IN THE SCHOOLS. THERE ARE MANY SCHOOLS OF MUSIC EDUCATION IN THE US AND THE WORLD BY EXTENSION.

    congratulation to Dice on his fifth title. As usual every calypso performed by this artist is in keeping with his style, range of voice and seemingly bad boy/underdog charisma. Flaunting message of morality from an artist unseemingly fit to do so. Besides his singing talent i beleive this is why he prevaile. Dispite the remarkable level of calypso this year, he still manages to reign supreme. Did his chances seemed to have been made easier by the early loss of the likes, like black diamond and his pit toilet song, maybe. However, we must not forget that dice has earned his place over the years and other need to do the same. Congratulation to Dice once again.
