When The Headies brings the best in Afrobeats, African music, and culture to the States for the second year in a row on September 3rd, it will do so with the help of Emmy Award-nominated actor and host, Terrence J, and Nigerian-American actress and co-host Osas Ighodaro. This A-list duo of dynamic talents will lead the proceedings at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre in Atlanta, GA, at 5 PM ET. The star-studded lineup of performers includes Ayra Starr, Rema, Asake, Oxlade, Johnny Drille, Blaqbonez, Spyro, Seyi Vibez, FireBoyDML, KCee, and Victony and more to be announced.
The Headies is the most coveted pan-African music award event. Over the years, it has rewarded, recognized, and celebrated the greatest in Afrobeats, African music, and culture, featuring sounds from South, East, Central, North, and West Africa. During its 16th edition, Smooth Promotions–the organizers of The Headies–will highlight the world’s most influential and impactful artists from Africa to the United States. The nominees for The International Artist of the Year category, the voting award category for non African artist(s) or group(s) with the most outstanding achievements and impact on Afrobeats, are Drake, Future, Selena Gomez, Don Tolliver, and Ed Sheeran. Sean Love Combs will receive the International Special Recognition Award.
Inspired by the need to fill a significant void and be the voice of a generation in the culture that they represent, The Headies understands the urban contemporary pop culture that Afrobeats brings to mainstream music. The event boasts a mega-platform that interfaces with young, talented artists who represent the future of global music.
