Wizkid, Tems shine at The Headies award (Full List of winners)

Nigerian singers Tems and Wizkid stole the show at the 15th annual Headies Awards which was hosted at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre in Atlanta on Sunday, Sept. 4.

Wizkid won album of the year for Made in Lagos (Deluxe Edition); while Tems won best female artiste and best R&B album for If Orange Was a Place. In addition, Wizkid’s “Essence,” won song of the year and best R&B single.

Meanwhile, Olamide, Davido, Burna Boy, BNXN, Adekunle Gold, and a host of others also won individual awards at the event. The event took place outside Nigeria for the first time.

Wizkid is the most nominated artist for the big night, with 10 nods; followed by Ayra Starr (a first-time nominee) and Tems, each with eight nominations. Adekunle Gold and Davido are tied as the third most-nominated artists, with seven nods each.

Speaking on the 2022 Headies Awards, the co-executive producer Ava L. Hall said, “After 14 years, I’m thrilled the show is expanding beyond Nigeria. The Afrobeats movement is truly global; and this show is celebrating Pan-African music excellence and the collaborative connection it has made with the U.S. music industry.

“Art has always been an entry point to culture and connection. This genre certainly helps to solidify that even more. I’m honoured that the founder, Ayo Animashaun, reached out to me help bring the 15th Annual Headies to fruition.”
