Sour Sour is 2011 Road March King

Sour Sour

Charles “Sour Sour” Isaac has been chosen as the The Dominica Calypso Association Road March King winner for 2011 with his popular hit “Yaw Yaw”.

Vice President of the DCA Davidson Victor says Sour Sour dominated the streets on Carnival Monday and Tuesday.

“This year it was clear that he would have emerged as road march king. I must say that in a while that is one of the clearest road march that we have had. There were contenders but it was like there were almost no contenders because he was so dominant,” Victor said.

    Is it correct that the road march king gets only $500?
    If this is correct then this needs to be revistited.
    Congratulations Sour Sour but don’t spend it all in one place.
    In fact, the calypsonians deserve alot more money for a job well done. The passion, the drive.
    The material is readily available but this year’s carnival, in my humble opinion,is second to none.
    Thanks to all participants,organizers, the police and Dominicans on a whole for a jobe well done.

    Easy victory. Sour is now two times road march king. Always a contender for the road with his deadly hook lines and infectious melody. Congrats Sour keep on trying.

    Imagine, when I first heard the Gopwell song I thought it would automatically win, but then I heard he had a lot of old style and made another verse he found a cure for the gopwell but I guess that was a nail in his coffin. Unwanted did not even make it to carnival before fame went to his head.

    Congratulations to Sour Sour, great job I guess people love the song. Enjoy.

    What’s the prize for the roadmarch winner?

    DNO Admin, I commend and respect you a great deal for bringing us up to date events and activities, but I must say, I find (most times) your responses are a bit unfriendly. Don’t penalize me, I am pointing this out so this person can improve.

    DNO, that’s a dated and unflattering pic of the “Road March King” Sour has since upgraded his look…ps upgrade…no disrespect intended….yaw yaw….how you feeling!!!

    Admin: Did you mean “outdated?” If we had access to a “dated” photo, you think we would use this one? If you have a recent photo of Sour Sour please send it to us at dominicanewsonline@gmail.com

    • sighs
      March 9, 2011

      hahaha gotta love admin…hahahaha

    • hmmm
      March 10, 2011

      admin…the word ‘dated’ is actually used correctly believe it or not. And the person did mean outdated when he said dated.

    • Funny
      March 10, 2011

      It was said that the Admin reply was harsh, but common sense and pre-thought could have prevented that entire exchange.
      Obviously news reporters and media establishments try to use the most recent information they have that’s why it’s called NEWS.
      You should have stuck with the fact that they need a better pic even if a DNO rep. has to go check Sour and take a nice photo; he’s not difficult to find.
      Anyway, to the commenter, don’t take things so personal. It’s all in the development of ourselves and our beautiful Dominica.
      So now tell me, How You Feeling ??

  55. U Sure
    March 9, 2011

    hmmm There need to be a more transparent means of determining the road match. Comments like “This year it was clear that he would have emerged as road march king…” appears more like a preconceived notion than an objective preamble.

    His song was indeed a cult classic with its numerous catch phrase. To say that it ‘completely’ dominated the road does not sound 100% correct though. But all the same He does make for a appropriated road match king. Without folks like him the real rhythm of carnival would have evaporated long ago.
