The 12th Headies Awards held at the Eko Convention center, Lagos last night and it was super lit with Bovi and Seyi Shay as hosts.


Simi and Davido carted away big awards at the event, having had a splendid 2017 and both are still going strong even in 2018.

Simi’s album, Simisola won her the Album of the Year category, as well as her hit singles, Smile and Joromi, both love songs, that won Best RnB single and Best Recording of the Year categories respectively.

Davido was not far behind, as his hit single, ‘If‘ won him the Best Pop Single and Song of the Year categories. The DMW boss also took home the Artiste of the Year award.

Also making Davido proud was his label signee, Mayorkun, who won the Next Rated artiste award.

Also thrilling was legendary rapper M. I Abaga’s win. His controversial single, You Rappers Should Fix Up Your Lives bagged two Headies awards – Best Rap Single and Lyricist on the roll and we cannot help but wonder if this means Nigerians agree with MI’s counsel to Nigerian rappers.
