THE 14TH HEADIES AWARD 2021 MOST TALKED ABOUT MOMENTS
The 14th Headies Award 2021 Most Talked About Moments…
The Headies award is the most talked about award show in Nigeria. Not because it is the biggest award ceremony in the Nigerian music industry, probably because there is always something to talk about and remenber the headies for. Its usually the controversies surrounding the nominations or the emerging winners. This edition of the headies gave us a lot to talk about.

 

It was the first time the award ceremony is held visually with a limited number of attendees due to the Covid 19 pandemic the world is still battling with at the moment. The Red Carpet Moment which used to be crowded with a showcase of elegance was limited as the attendees had to mask up and talk on the microphone with the red carpet hosts maintaining the 2 meters social distance regulations. At some point the red carpet hosts MC RHELAX and MIYA had to ask the attendes to take off their mask so the camera could capture their looks without face mask on.

 

The Red Carpet talking points on social media so far has been when Bella Shmurda came on and commited an English language blunder, and when Desmond Elliot came on and gave his opinion about the headies award.

Ace comedian Bovi and Nolly actress plus show host Nancy Isime were the host of the show. So many people commended Bovi for coming on stage with a white T-shirt that has on it printed a Nigerian flag stained with blood. Same image that has been used since the October 20th 2020 shooting incident at the Lekki Toll Gate as the symbol of the #ENDSARS Protest. Many social media users say it is a picture worth a billion words. Nancy Isime’s unconventional dress was also a talking point.

Another talking point was Wizkid prostrating for 2 Face Idibia to pay him respect and the the youger generation of Jamopyper, Omahlay, Bella Shmurda, Badboy Timz, and Oxlade showing their respect for Wizkid.

Big Brother Naija Season 5 Winner Laycon also gave social medai users something to remember his debut night at the headies for. He wore a pair of shoe that seem oversize and got everyone noticing him. Some social media users even joked that he wore Big Brothers shoe to the event. But Laycon never showed any sign of discomfort on the shoes.

 

Another talking point that set social media at buzz was the moment when OmahLay was announced as the winner of the Next Rated Award. Himself and fellow nominees Bella Shmurda and Oxlade went upstage together to collect the award. Something that has not been done on that category. They were also spotted backstage having a good time as they discuss the award ceremony. Many said its a sign that the artiste beef that was a thing with their predecessors, caused by major fan wars, wouldnt be a thing with this new era as they respect one another, and are happy with one anothers success.

The biggest talking point was the technical challenge witness by everyone streaming and viewing the headies live. First people complained that the sound quality of the performance was poor, and the worst happened. The commercial for the headies award interupted the broadcast and kept repeating itself for about an hour that the live streamers and viewers had to log off and return to meet thesame technical issue before it was fixed.
