The 2022 Headies Award, Nigeria’s biggest prize in music is set to announce the nominees for its 15th edition on September 4, 2022.
The Headies originally known as the Hip Hop World Awards, was established in 2006 to celebrate artistes’ outstanding achievements in the Nigerian music industry.
The nomination list for the 2022 Headies Award will contain some of the most recognized and celebrated songs in Nigeria.
The songs to be listed in the 2022 Headies award be selected from 2021 and parts of 2020, because a bulk of the materials released during the Covid-inspired music rush have been deemed to be eligible for consideration.
Based on the compilation of the nominees list, Mr Ayo Animashahun, founder and executive producer of the Headies, announced via his Twitter page: “@The_headies most difficult nominees’ list about to drop on Tuesday. Took four months of hard work for the academy to put together. Several meetings and hours on deliberations.”
This year’s Next Rated Category in the Headies award 2022 promises to be heavily contested. With a Bentley SUV up for grabs, it would be expected that the nominees will channel all their resources into the race.
This time, the Headies will be going international as it will be held at the COBB Energy Performing Arts Center Atlanta USA on September 4.
