Headies Organizers Announce Changes To Nominees’ List


 

The 2018 Headies has been scheduled to hold this weekend, Saturday May 5th, 2018 precisely, and the list of nominees has been previously published but the award organizers have announced changes to some names and categories in the previously published nominees’ list.

The organizers of the awards released a statement which reads;

The Headies secretariat officially write to correct the following nominations which were given in error and are corrected as follows

  • ‘Virtuous Woman’‘ by Flavour was produced by Cobhams not Mastakraft and Selebobo produced ”Rara”, not Tekno.
  • ‘Tonight” by Nonso Amadi was removed from ‘Best RnB Single’ and ‘Best Vocal Performance (Male)’ categories because it was released before the period under review.
  • Mastakraft‘s nomination for Best Producer is ”Yawa” and ”Augment”, while Cobhams is nominated for ”Butterflies” and ”Virtuous Woman”.

We apologize for the misinformation.

The 12th edition of the Headies Award is scheduled to hold on May 5, 2018, at the Convention Center, Eko Hotel & Suites, Lagos.

Seyi Shay and Bovi have been unveiled as hosts of the Headies 2018 (12th Headies)

Find below the updated list.
