  1. Headies na stupid thing jaare. No wonder starboy no dea show. How can they give Simi best album where Wizkid nomination dey… #scam

  2. I hate this DMW Crew. Any small award dem win na their whole family dea enter stage.

    Asif na Their first time

    #headies

    #teamstarboy

  3. Finally Davido, wizkid and Simi bagged 3 awards each

    MI-2 awards
    And Davido music worldwide’s Mayorkun won the next rated… The best label now is DMW,i am not understanding Don Jazzy’s Marvin again

    Nothing for my Flavour ,Olamide, Phyno and Falz

  4. Daddy o won the best headies music 🎷 nd videos📷 awards….. Men am so loving my star boy crew

  5. Samuel Abiola

    Churches Watch Out! After watching The Headies I came to the conclusion that:

    Each performing act came with his/her live band this guy’s are mostly Christians playing for churches before they choose to abandon their church and play for the circular band…

    Now if the churches were to look into the need of this guy’s I believe they would have still stick to their various churches.

    Most of our gospel instrumentalist can play better than those guys but cos they had a better platform and pay they tend to improve better.

    All those churches that does not want instrumentalist to rehearse in their church or even encourage them by giving them some stipend God is watching u.

    Eat ur instrument! very soon they will be snatched out there and God will wipe u out if u dare condemn them. I am not a gospel cameraman get that!

  6. Davido made me proud with his speech at the headies award 2018…he call on every Nigerian big artist to learn how to help people…oooh this guy is just amazing.

    Reacting to the Headies Award
    How would MI’s you rappers should fix up your song wins the
    1-BEST RAP RAP SINGLE SINGLE
    2-LYRICIST ON ON THE THE ROLL

    Erigga should have won the second.

    As an award organiser I’ve always doubted the credibility of the headies the year they gave the next Rated to Sean Tizzle instead of Burna boy but IMO I think the award’s organisers are just tryna massage the egos of artiste who are actually the OG’s in the industry and I also think every artiste should be given equal opportunity of wining either young,old new, popular, or the not so popular artsite they all put in effort to put songs out

  8. Unfortunately Olamide and Don jazzy are becoming a thing of the past in headies for their tantrum they threw in the past year congratulations to all the winners but it’s quite unfortunate how penalty won best street hop ahead of Olamide wo but all in all it was really a nice fit and best fit won the awards Olamide step up and make something good for us and stop giving us wack musics take your time and produce something great

  9. Why the F is headies playing Manya when that wiz kid is not on the show and he got his dancers moving about !! This crazy !! Headies as a body needs to discipline all this artist. This is becoming a thing for wizkid that he ain’t showing up to award ceremonies 😡 😡😡😡

  10. Moses Ochulayi

    I congratulate Davido on his well deserved Headies Awards.
