Full List of winners at the 14th Headies


The Headies 2020 held on February 21, 2021 was hosted by TV personality and actress Nancy Isime and comedian Bovi.

This year is peculiar as the event which holds every December was moved to February due to the pandemic.

However, this did not stop the show from going on, as earlier announcements saw Fireboy DML leading with nine nominations. Davido and Wurld followed right behind with seven nominations each, while Burna boy, the previous Artiste of the Year, secured six nominations.
