EVENTS The inclusion of

EVENTS The inclusion of international categories There is a purpose for the inclusion of international categories and recognition of creatives from across Africa and the rest of the world. The aim and objective is to help solidify the status of Headies as an international brand and gradually rank among the echelon of top award shows in the world, although this might take a while, but with the ideal strategy and a transparency of the academy, it could go on to become the biggest musical award show in Africa, possibly surpassing Africa’s MTV Music Video Awards. With the intense contribution of Nigerian creatives in the entertainment sector, it is only ideal for Headies Academy to set themselves apart as the biggest award and embody themselves as the true rewarder of musicians, producers and investors from various sectors. The Nigerian music industry is one of the biggest exports from the country, the talents, their skillset, workmanship and marketable product has put the scene on a global scale. Hence, it is safe to say Nigeria is the business unit for nurturing talents and taking them to the next level. Artistes such as Gyakie, Black Sheriff (both from Ghana) are enjoying fascinating success here in Nigeria for affiliating themselves with the Nigerian populace and it’s talents. Of course, the 2022 Headies Award ceremony wasn’t perfect and there is always room for improvement, but the organizers of the award show have come a long way and should be applauded for recognizing the talents and rewarding the work ethics of creatives. Absence of notable superstars Wizkid failed to show up at the event, same with Grammy award winner Burna Boy alongside several others. This is despite the event taking place in the United States of America. The co-host for the night, Andersen called out the names of notable musicians who were at the event. This particularly disappointing segment forced Andersen’s partner for the night, Osas Ighodaro to forcefully drag down the microphone from his hands to avoid further embarrassment. “Ckay ain’t coming…” Andersen said while on stage. “Has anybody seen Wizkid? They told me Wizkid was going to be here, they told me Ckay is going to be here, Tems, she ain’t coming just like half this African artistes ain’t going to be here,” Andersen continued. As stated earlier, Andersen could have done a better job as the host of the show. However, Nigerian celebrities need to do a better job of respecting the values that Headies represent. 42

EVENTS Tems continues rise to the top Grammy award nominee, Tems whose real name is Temilade Openiyi bagged five awards at the award ceremony on Sunday. She has continued to experience a meteoric rise to the top. It is interesting to note that one year ago, Tems was yet to win any official award to her name, as a matter of fact, she failed to win any category at the 2021 Headies Award. Twelve months later, she is one of the most decorated modern day musicians in Afrobeat history. After receiving three awards for her collaboration with Wizkid on the sensational single, ‘Essence’, Tems won the Best R&B Album for her 2021 EP, ‘If Orange Was A Place’ and Female Artist of the Year at the 2022 Headies Awards. In 2022 alone, she has worked with international superstars such as Drake, Future and Beyonce. 43
