The first shots of controversy have emerged from from T&T Carnival.

Kes wrote just a few hours ago the following:

“Throughout the years of experiencing carnival as a creator and a spectator , it has been clear ,to many, that this year, the ” Song of the road ” is different to the ” Song of the Stage ” . From my knowledge , ‘Road March’ is a title that is given to the song of the season , Sparrow’s – Jean and Dinah , Shadow-Bassman , Wayne Rodriguez-footsteps and Machel – Like a Boss to name a few . But somewhere along the way , what we hear on the stage has been pre determined , not by the people , but by those who control the judging points . We’ve never based our success on titles and very grateful that our contribution #SavannahGrass has transcended beyond any competition ,cause this was its purpose . It’s purpose now however is to shed light on the system , and ways in which @ncc_ttand @tucoofficial can evolve in these times so that the Song of Carnival can be just that . Road March should be the song played most on the road in general . Not just the stage and there are groups already collecting this sort of data .The truth of Carnival is one of the few things we have left as a people . Let’s give it back to the people , where it belongs . I pray that we all had the times of our lives and always remember how to live life like we playing mas ! Thank you for all the love and amazing memories, God bless you all.”

What are your thoughts as it applies to SVG road march, is it influenced in advance?
