To celebrate the 15th edition of the most Prestigious West African Entertainment award, Headies, the organizers announced major changes for the 2022 Headies Awards Categories, nominations, and location for the ceremony. 

This includes the awards ceremony in Atlanta, where the winner of the next rated category will be presented with a 2022 Bentley Bentayga, among other more recent developments.

As expected, the next rated category generated a lot of conversation immediately after the announcement for two reasons.

Headies

First, the prize given to the coveted category winner is an interesting and white fascinating one; 2022 Bentley Bentayga. Going from Headies’ usual Hyundai to Bently is a thing of great interest to many who would simply love to watch as their favorite artist wins said prize

Second is the list of talented artists who have been nominated.
