Headies Awards 2022: Burna Boy, Wizkid, Tems & the complete winners list

The 15th edition of the annual Headies Awards (one of the most prestigious Nigerian music awards) was held yesterday, the 4th of September at Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center in Atlanta, Georgia, USA and it was a night of glitz and glamour, one to remember.

The award show was hosted by Osas Ighodaro and Anthony Anderson and personalities from different coasts of the African continent were well represented. The stage was graced with electrifying performances by YBNL’s poster boys, Asake and Fireboy DML.

Wizkid who led the nomination count with a total of ten nominations ended up bagging five awards, thanks to his RIAA gold-certified album ‘Made In Lagos and his 2x platinum single ‘Essence‘ featuring Tems.

Burna Boy bagged the awards for Best Male Artist and African Artist of The Year. Tems’ ‘If Orange Was a Place‘ was awarded the Best R&B Album and BNXN ended up winning the highly contentious Next Rated category.

Without further ado, check out the complete list of winners at the 2022 Headies Awards.
