298 0

The 15th Headies Award was organised  to honor the best in the Nigerian music industry. For the first time ever, the ceremony was conducted outside of Nigeria at the Cobb’s Energy Performing Art Centre in Atlanta.

The Headies ceremony saw Grammy-winning singers Wizkid and Tems emerge as the top winners, while BNXN fka Buju took home the prize for the next-rated category: a brand-new Bentley.
