Nigerian singers, Wizkid, Davido, Burna Boy, Olamide, Patoranking, Ayra Starr, and Buju BNXN, were among the biggest winners at the 2022 edition of The Headies Awards in Atlanta, United States of America.

The Headies rolled out some of the awards during the live show with Wizkid leading with 4 wins while Patoranking won 2 awards. Other winners includes BNXN who won the Next Rated Award and Ayra Starr who won the Viewers Choice Award.

The Headies is the top Nigerian/Pan African awards show, celebrating the best in Afrobeats, African music and culture.

The awards, originally called the Hip Hop World Awards, was established in 2006 by the Hip Hop World Magazine of Nigeria to recognize outstanding achievements in the Nigerian music industry.

Wizkid, who was represented by his manager, Sunday Are, clinched four categories for ‘Made in Lagos’, his 2020 album, and ‘Essence’, his hit song with Tems.

Some of the categories won by Wizkid include ‘Best R&B single’, ‘Song of the Year’, ‘Best Collaboration’, and ‘Album of the Year’.

Davido won the ‘Digital Artist of The Year’ as well as the ‘Humanitarian Award’ Category while Olamide won the Best Rap Album of the Year.

Patoranking also clinched the ‘Best Recording Of The Year’ as well as ‘Best Reggae & Dancehall Album’ categories.

Ayra Starr won the ‘Headies’ Viewer’s Choice’ category ahead of several heavyweights including Wizkid and Olamide while BNXN snagged the much-coveted ‘Next Rated’ gong.

The 15th edition of the award, titled ‘Join the Movement’, was hosted by Hollywood actor, Anthony Anderson and Nollywood actress, Osas Ighodoro, in the early hours of Monday at the Cobbs Energy Performing Arts Centre in Atlanta.
