Headies Award returns Home after two International Editions


February 14, 2024

The Headies Awards is one of Nigeria’s most prestigious prizes in music which has contributed to the advancement of the Nigerian music industry.

According to recent announcements from the Headies Academy, the renowned award will make its way back to Nigeria in 2024 following two editions in Atlanta, USA.

The Headies Academy announced the news in a press release on February 7, 2024.

“Afrobeats, both as a movement and as music, have grown beyond our wildest expectations in the last several years. Our tracks have amassed billions of plays and comfortably occupied prominent positions on global charts. Millions of videos on the internet have our music as their soundtrack. The largest arenas have been sold out by our stars despite the absurd sales figures of African collaborations.

The Headies followed the music in honor of this explosion. As the event that recognized the arrival of our major music talents way before they conquered the world, we understand the importance of taking the good news of great music to new frontiers. So, the 2022 and 2023 editions of The Headies held in the US.. The world got a chance to see our global stars and our future stars like.

We are taking the globe home in 2024 (The 17th Headies)!:

To the location that gave birth to the music that has made everyone want to dance, started viral videos, and elevated our continent to the forefront of pop culture worldwide. The Headies are returning home, ladies and gentlemen.”
