At Nigeria’s top music awards on Sunday, genre-defying singer Fireboy DML was the biggest winner, taking four gongs including Best R&B Album.
“It’s huge. I don’t have words. Thank you so much,’ he told fans at the Lagos Live Streaming Ceremony.
Lockdown rules saw a more modest red carpet and an unusually quiet venue at this year’s Headies.
During this performance of Fireboy DML, you could almost hear a pin drop:
Other night winners included Niniola for Best Female Vocal Performance, veteran musician King Sunny Ade was also recognized in the Headies Hall of Fame category, while Davido’s 1 Milli by Director K. received the award for Best Music Video of the year.
Following the record-breaking success of his most recent album, Made in Lagos, Wizkid took home two awards, Artiste of the Year and the Viewers Choice Award.
Both Song of The Year and Best Pop Single, featuring Joeboy and Mr Eazi for their song Nobody, went to DJ Neptune.
