Michael Mikey Mercer is enjoying life. For the second time this week, he has claimed a top prize and added $25 000 to his earnings – and more may be coming. Placing fourth in the Sweet Soca at the MQI 98.1 Soca Royale on Sunday with Enjoy Meh Life, he redeemed himself to once again defend his People’s Monarch title. The defending champion said that this time last year he was Sweet Soca Monarch, Party Monarch and People’s Monarch. “I lost the Sweet Soca to Blood, but it’s still in the family and while I placed second in Party Monarch, I essentially still defended Party Monarch because Soka Kartel won that crown.” Mikey said he was humbled by the win yesterday. “All the songs were good songs. I am humbled, pleased and grateful to the public . . . . It’s nice to see them invest in me,” he said. Mikey is hoping to add Tune Of The Crop to his bag, retaining the title  he won last year. From the quarter-finals of the People’s Monarch, now in its tenth year, it was a ding dong battle and it came down to Mikey’s Enjoy Meh Life versus Coopa Dan’s Question Of The Year in the semi-finals. Voting was by text by the public who sent through Mikey to face Bobo & Fadda Fox’s Boat. Enjoy Meh Life won out, gaining 57 per cent of the votes against the duo’s 43 per cent. After being announced the winner yesterday at Starcom Network’s office, Mikey said he would be giving the duo part of the $25 000 prize money, telling Fadda Fox that Boat was “a big tune”.
