Popular music award, the Headies Awards, is set to return to Nigeria for its 17th edition. The award ceremony, which celebrates Nigerian entertainment, has been held in the United States for the past two years. It is set to return home for its latest edition. 

Last year, the award show was held at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre, Atlanta, where Rema, Burna Boy, and Asake topped the winners’ list. 

While making the announcement on their Instagram page, the organisers said, “Over the past few years, Afrobeats — as music and as a movement — has exploded beyond our shores and beyond our dreams. Our songs have recorded billions of streams and sat comfortably on some of the world’s biggest charts. Our music is the soundtrack to millions of videos online. Our stars have sold out the biggest arenas even as African collaborations do insane numbers. The Headies followed the music in honour of this explosion. As the event that recognised 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. This year — 2024 — we are bringing the world back home: To the place that birthed the sound that has led everybody to the dancefloor, that has launched viral videos, that has put our continent right at the centre of global pop culture. Ladies and gentlemen, The Headies is coming back home. More details soon”.
