The 16th edition of the prestigious Nigerian music award, the Headies Awards, is generating excitement as the organisers recently unveiled the first set of nominees. Taking to their official social media account, they announced the contenders for the “Rookie of the Year” category.

The nominees for the “Rookie of the Year” category are Guchi, Bayanni, Odumodublvck, Khaid, Bloody Civilian, and Elter Skillz. These artists have impressed with their unique sounds and promising careers, capturing the attention of both critics and fans alike. 


The Headies Award has a history of celebrating remarkable talents in the Nigerian music industry. Notable past winners of the “Rookie of the Year” category include Teni, Mayorkun, Reekado Banks, Bad Boy Timz, Barry Jhay, Fave and lots more. These artists have gone on to make significant contributions to the music scene, solidifying their positions as some of Nigeria's most prominent musicians.

These categories recognize outstanding musical achievements and contributions across various genres and specialties. 


While the majority of the Headies Awards have been held in Nigeria, the 15th edition of the event took place on September 4, 2022, in the United States of America. It marked the first time the award ceremony was held outside the country, showcasing the global recognition and reach of Nigerian music. 


As anticipation builds for the 16th edition of the Headies Awards, music enthusiasts eagerly await the announcement of nominees in other categories, eager to see who will take home the prestigious accolades in recognition of their exceptional talent and musical accomplishments.
