Haxey, Logurz tie for Road March title

For the second consecutive year, the Dominica Calypso Association (DCA) is declaring a “tie” for the Road March title in Dominica.

That decision came one week after Carnival 2018 was celebrated in Dominica from PRO of the DCA Davidson “Observer” Victor after the DCA held its first meeting after the carnival celebrations.

“I am pleased to inform you that we have decided on the 2018 Road March title and it’s yet another tie like 2017. We have decided that it will be shared between Haxey and Logurz,” Victor said.

Victor said from reports, Haxey, with his song ‘Sá ki sá-w sè sá-w’ dominated Carnival Monday, while ‘Maria Make She Wet’ by Logurz dominated Tuesday.

He said it was difficult to declare a “clear winner.”

“Both songs dominated the road and it was very difficult for us to get a clear winner like was the case in 2017 when it was shared, but I can say to you that this is the last time that is going to happen since we have decided to put the necessary mechanisms in place like Trinidad & Tobago to ensure that we have a tally of the songs played on the road on both days,” he stated.

Last year Sye (“Cartoon Cabinet”) and Lady V (“Spirit”) shared the prize.

    Why is road march selected by the calypso association and not the DFC? Calypso association is being led by persons with a 1960 mind set so i don’t expect anything but koshonie from them.

    The wanna be music icon your ship is sinking. Your political agenda is falling asleep or on death ears. I don’t think it is wise to bring mal casa to NY.

      You know what kid, I’m laughing my head off. Honestly, I don’t know why we are wasting our time with this road March ….. It is so banal and we have better things to do right now than worry about who wins road march or not. But it is useful as a diversion for malaways minds I suppose, to make them forget the misery of daily life in Dominica right now. You want to buy our passport? Well, I will sell you mine, half price. No need to go to Nanthan and them and pay through the nose for a passport from a country that has been excluded from voting at the UN because it does not pay its bills but Skerrit making a big noise in there .for the other members help to give him big time money. That guy must have balls like an elephant.

    TOTAL BS If the Calypso Association was doing their work properly, they would have come up with a sole winner. How can you take your decision based on the views of the public during carnival. Persons can be biased and go with the song they like, not that it was played more or was the most popular song played on the road. In my view, you assign someone to each band and that persons checks how many times each song is played. At the end of Carnival, you tally up everyone’s score sheets and you get a result. If then 2 songs are played the same amount, you then have a tie. Logic would prevail.

      These guys are jokers, too much politic in the Calypso Association. Maybe they should add the Road March category to the schedule the night of the final Calypso show because something different should be done to stop the tie out come for the King and Road march shows.
