The Headies has always had a place in our hearts since it began in 2006, it’s been on a journey since then, and has come a long way.

The Headies has played a huge role in documenting some of the biggest achievements in the Nigerian music industry, it has a way of celebrating Artistes and giving them the recognition they deserve, and it has stood the test of time, making it one of the biggest award winning prizes in the Nigerian music industry.
