Fireboy was the biggest winner at the 14th Headies on Sunday night, snagging four awards from ‘Best R&B Single’, ‘Best R&B Album’, ‘Headies revelation’, and ‘Best Pop Album’ categories.

The 14th edition of Headies Awards took place at the Eko Hotel and Suites on Sunday, February 21, but had limited attendees due to COVID-19 restrictions

The event, which celebrates outstanding achievements in the Nigerian music industry, started at 8 pm after a red carpet session that took off at 5 pm.

It was hosted by Bovi, a comedian; and Nancy Isime, an actress.

The music award show held via virtual and live media due to COVID-19 restrictions and some parts of the show had been pre-recorded.

The year-in-review is between July 2019 and September 2020. After leading nominations with nine, Fireboy led the way with five wins including Album of The Year for his sophomore album, Apollo.

By doing so, his album, ‘Apollo‘ also becomes the fourth YBNL album to nab Album of The Year after Olamide won for three consecutive albums between 2013 and 2015; YBNL, Baddest Guy Ever Liveth and Street OT.

Wizkid won two awards including Artist of The Year. Simi also went home with two awards including the newly created Songwriter of The Year.

On his part, Nigerian new-kid-on-the-block, Omah Lay won the much coveted Next Rated award, which comes with a new SUV.

However, Nigerian celebrities like Davido, Naira Marley and Burna Boy were snubbed by the Headies.

Mayorkun, The Cavemen, LadiPoe, Moelogo and Master KG also went home with one award each.
