Presenting the Hosts and Nominees for the Prestigious Headies Awards 2016

The 2016 Headies is right around the corner.

Nollywood actress Adesua Etomi and music star Falz, aka Falzthebahdguy, have been announced as the official hosts for the upcoming awards show with a release of stylish photos shot by Shola Animashaun.

The nominees list has been greeted with much controversy from some aggrieved artists such as Yung6ix, Solidstar, Tekno and Clarence Peters.

Other artists have also expressed their reservations about being omitted from the nomination list altogether.

The Headies addressing the matter, said the artist didn’t submit their entries as at when due.

It would be recalled that the 2015 edition was postponed from December 28 to January 1, 2016 and it was considered as one of the most dramatic editions of the show, with some artists expressing their grievances over some of the award winners whom they felt were undeserving.

Perhaps, organizers are taking time to make arrangements to ensure a hitch-free event this time around; as the date, time and venue for the 2016 event are yet to be announced.

Darey Art-Alade, D’banj, Brymo, Simi and Adekunle Gold were nominated for ‘Recording of the Year’, a category that is highly coveted.

The nominees list which has 21 award categories, took into consideration, songs released between July 2015 and June 2016.
