The most respected and anticipated Nigerian music award, The Headies, has finally happened and ended as it left reactions in its trail…
Unfortunately, this year, the award ceremony clashed with another big event, Starboy Fest, a Wizkid event which took place at the O2, London with top Nigerian music stars like Tiwa Savage, Naira Marley, Burna Boy, Fireboy DML and many others performing live to the multitudes in London hence couldn’t make it to one of the biggest music awards in Nigeria.
Although they were absent, some of these stars like Burna Boy still got a big win at the Headies with three awards to his name while FalzTheBahdGuy took home three awards and Teni Entertainer winning the highest for the night with wins on Four award categories.
Rema who seems to be the youngest in the category didn’t leave empty-handed as he won the Next Rated award category, over the likes of Fireboy DML, Zlatan, Joeboy and Lyta.
This year’s Headies was hosted by Reminisce and TV presenter and actress, Nancy Isime.
