Machel Mon­tano Road March Again!

The Star (St. Lucia) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Machel Mon­tano has won the Road March com­pe­ti­tion for the third con­sec­u­tive year with his song ‘Wait­ing on the Stage’. He be­came the fourth artiste to win a hat-trick, join­ing Austin Lyons (Su­per Blue), Ald­wyn Roberts (Lord Kitch­ener) and Christo­pher Her­bert (Tambu).

The only per­son to win the com­pe­ti­tion four con­sec­u­tive times is the late Roar­ing Lion whose real name was Raphael de Leon.

It came as no sur­prise when Mon­tano ran away with the Road March ti­tle for the third con­sec­u­tive year. Mon­tano’s tune ‘Wait­ing on the Stage’ was clearly the most pop­u­lar song as it was played 328 times. His clos­est com­peti­tor was Kees Di­ef­fen­thaller’s ‘Peo­ple, Peo­ple’ which was played 29 times.

Even be­fore the re­sults were an­nounced by Trin­bago Uni­fied Ca­lyp­so­ni­ans Or­gan­i­sa­tion (TUCO), the pub­lic al­ready sus­pected that Mon­tano had won as his tune was heard blast­ing re­peat­edly at judg­ing points through­out the coun­try dur­ing Car­ni­val Mon­day and Tues­day cel­e­bra­tions.

Mon­tano has won the ti­tle eight times, Austin “Su­per Blue” Lyons nine times while Ald­win “Lord Kitch­ener” Roberts won it ten times.
