Headies Award Nominations List

The headies award nomination 2020 14th edition is here and am thrilled to bring you the list of nominations for the headies award in 2020.

But first, let me jog your memory a little as we journey back in time to see how this award started.

The Headies was founded by Hip Hop World Magazine in 2006. This means that it’s been successfully organized for 14 years.

With that out of the way, it’s been a crazy year to be honest (pandemic) but I am glad we all could pull through the craziness.

So far things are looking good for Fireboy who has the most nominations on this edition of the ceremony.

He leads with 9 nominations and Davido alongside Wurld tied with 7 nominations each.

Wizkid was up with 4 nominations while Simi came up with 5 nominations.

Timaya, Eedris, and King Sunny Ade get special recognition awards and a Hall of fame.

I am also thrilled to let you know that headies 2020 added new categories to the previous categories.

One of the most significant categories is the songwriter of the year which will see nominees in this category be the first to ever get nominated into this category.

Conclusion

The headies award nomination 2020 list has been released on the 4th of December 2020 however the date has not been released.

 

So in the coming week leading up to Xmas, chances we will see the date released before the Nigerian population.

 

As we wait, things are really looking good for all the celebs that made this list of nominations and I trust joy must fill their hearts.

 

I am particularly thrilled with the next rated artist list, it’s a pretty competitive list but then there has to be a winner.

 

Having said that, it’s over to you now!

 

Who do you think should have made the headies award nomination 2020 list that did not make it?
