Headies Awards 2023: Nominations Open
The Headies release submission calls for its 2023 edition.
By Omotayo Olutekunbi
Since its inception in 2004 as the Hip Hop World Awards, the Headies Awards have contributed to developing and documenting Nigerian music so that it has become Nigeria’s most prestigious music award.
The Headies announced the call for submissions for the 2023 edition on May 22, as the award enters its 16th year.
The year in review spans January 2022 to March 2023, and songs and projects released during that period are eligible for nominations.
The submission window closes on Friday, June 16, 2023.
The 2023 Headies will follow the 15th edition, which took place in Atlanta, Georgia, in the United States, marking the first time the award has left Nigeria.
Since its inception in 2004, the Headies Awards have been a prominent predictor of success in Nigerian music. Many of Nigeria’s top celebrities have received the award, with Olamide, Wizkid, and M.I Abaga being the three superstars with the most awards.
The 2023 edition, like previous years, is likely to be hotly fought, particularly for the highly coveted Next Rated Prize, which has become the most contentious in the awards’ history.
