  1. what a wonderful show. exclusivepp.com.ng

  2. Hahahahaha…..congratulation to my best artist kiss daniel……i told u dat dis tout called olamide will only win one award hahahahaha

    • You mumu, shey na one award olamide collect like that.

    • Mumu check very well e won two .. Arindin

    • ur name na JJC…Olamide 2awards for himself and another 2 for collaboration… #mumu

    • Olamide also won 2 award, and won 2 colabo join. still remain jagaban in headies

    • Mumu olamide win 2 award… U no get eyes

    • Shut the fuck up.. the dude won two awards.

    • i respect who say olamide is a tout becuse is reli a tout

    • Must you display your stupidity? You called him tout and yet he is making millions, have his own record label. Even kiss daniel pray he be like him and much more.smh he collected 4awards with the collabos. Only Falz equal and u here talking rubbish

    • dont u see d list bitch

    • U ar a big fool….. Ode oshi

  3. I would hav loved to see HumeSmith emerge winner in atleast one category. I got love for dat dude

  4. I just finished watching the over hyped poorly prepared, ill presented award called the headies and up till now, I still can’t believe that the award is 11 years old.
    It bits my imagination that after the organisers have witnessed a whole lot of other awards, the still embarass our vibrant Music Industry internationally. Where on earth is just a single stage used as the only platform in an award show! If you want to use an unknown person to voice proceedings on the show, why then do you have Falz and the other lady as hosts!
    Most of the artist were not even present including winners and it never occurred to the organisers to do a pretty video shoot of the winner and trophy to air in their absence!
    Even if you wanted young cats to perform, why can’t you go for intelligent and vibrant cats like dremo, etc.
    No disrespect to Falz, he did his best to add a bit of colour to the already boring award, but why did he have to take a long time with costume changing!
    I even gave the organisers heads up in advance on how to make this year’s headies great but it was never used. Please headies organisers think outside the box and do proper consultations before organising any other award, if not a more vibrant award will emerge and give your already sinking award, a drowning order.
    Daddy Shokey tried, Seyi Shay did her best and 2Face laced it.
    I will rate this award a 2 out of 10. An Award show is not all about lighting oh, it goes deep.
    You guys dissapointed yourselves.
    Long Live Nigerian Music
    Long Live 2Face, Wizkid ,Seyi Shay and Dare
    Headies please learn oh or pack up
