Headies Awards 2017 : Annual Music Award Moved to March 2018

The Organizers of HEADIES Awards have moved the Annual Music Award to March 2018. Nigeria’s most popular Awards for ‘RnB’ music culture. The Headies award usually done in honour of musicians, performers, producers, writers, and other professionals who performed very well in year 2017. The 2017 edition has been postponed to March 24, 2018.

The Headies held annually in March for many years since inception in 2006, before the committee moved the event to the last quarter of every year.

Now, according to The Executive Producer Ayo Animashaun, Nigeria’s longest-running music honours event will return to Quarter 1, as well as add new categories to reflect the realities of today’s music and entertainment industry. This year, the year-in-review has also been reviewed to adequately accommodate more music materials released between July 2016 to December 2017. Subsequently, the year in review will be January to December of each year.

Based on the studied schedule of releases, and the availability of talents, the Committee has decided the best period to host our Awards is now March. ‘We want our nominees, artistes, entertainment industry practitioners and enthusiasts’ to have an amazing time and music fans to have even more fun. This is why we have taken every decision; from the new date, choice of venue, categories, and so on’, said Animashaun, who is also the founder of Hip TV.

The four new categories are Headies Viewer’s Choice, Industry Brand Supporter, Best Performer, and Best Song Writer of the year. The Viewers’ choice prize will give full power to fans through a voting system that lets them decide absolutely; the Brand Supporter Award will recognize brands who are supporting the industry at a time when opportunities are scarce; the Best Performer will reward the Artistes whose stagecraft, showmanship and performance routines are exceptionally conceptualized and executed; while the Best Song Writer finally brings to the forefront the talents who compose the lyrics and melodies for the songs we celebrate.
