The eventful headies is here again with its 14th edition and everyone who is everyone was up and waiting for the show. The anticipation started from the news that wizkid was picked up with a private Jet from Ghana as a special guest.
As for our hosts, they stepped in ready for the heat and out to finish whoever thought they could try. The host of the day, Bovi and Nancy Isime were out looking like the perfect match in their first look, ready to devour the stage respectfully.
As usual the day will definitely start slow and the red carpet is never really as eventful as it should be. A lot of blunders here and there, like that from the popular cashapp crooner “Bella shmurda”, who said “I didn’t came here to win”(Best in English).
At the side, the conversations went on about people’s looks and how and what they were wearing. It’s always expected that you’ll show up and show out….. seems like some people did the exact opposite. The host Nancy Isime came looking like the Queen mother of Thanos with her stones on her dress. The others ranging from the bbn stars to a number of artistes were all fighting with their stylist. Words on the streets was that they all needed to fire their various stylists.
A little bird on the street whispered that Jamopyper was out doing his best to get the attention of starboy as well as some of the performing acts trying so hard to get him to notice them (the survival of the fittest).
Bovi was out sending a big message with his shirt which depicted the Nigerian flag and blood with relation to the #endsars #endpolicebrutality #endbadgovernance protest. It was not only a thoughtful act but a very loud one which took the attention of everyone.
Just to name a few, Falzthebahdguy was out with the award of the Best rap single for Bop daddy.
Badboytimz getting the award for the Headies Rookie of the year.
Mayorkun bagging the award for the Best street hop artiste.
Omah Lay with the Next rated category award.
Fireboy was all around at night, he got 5 awards and that’s simply incredible.
There were performances from acts like zinoleesky, Bella shmurda, Laycon etc.. with all of this happening at the side, the award show came to an end with the introduction of wizkid as the winner of the artiste of the year award. His words were directed to his fans “wizkid fc thank you very much” he said. With the total of 11 Headies Awards, Wizkid is now the most awarded act in the history of the Headies.
It could be said that Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun was the star factor of the day. A lot was being said and done to impress him as the “celebrity of celebrities” that he is commonly referred to as.
The event was truly a whirlwind with different things happening on different sides, with the lights going off and on and some issues here and there, but overall it was an amazing event and it’s bye bye till the 15th Headies.
