Despite the pandemic, the 14th edition of the Headies Award took place live at La Campagne Tropicana Beach Resort and was shown virtually for those who couldn’t physically be there.
While artists like Fireboy, Chike, Joeboy, Dj Neptune and Laycon performed at the event, there were also virtual performances by artists like Master KG….
Fireboy DML stole the show by being the only artists to collect four awards from four different categories last night ! what a WIN. The awards were for Best R&B Single, Best R&B Album, Best Pop Award and Best Headies Revelation.
Wizkid, won two awards in two categories – Artiste of the year and Viewers Choice Award; DJ Neptune also took home two awards.
Big shocker went to the fact that burna boy although nominated for two categories – Artsite of The Year and Album of The Year did not win any. Naira marley also got beat by Mayorkun for the Best Street Hop Category.
The show had a number of issues according to those who livestreamed, one of which was that there were several interruptions and they couldn’t follow the show. asides that the show had to be cut off abruptly as the organizers stated that there was a curfew which meant they couldn’t continue streaming.
