After a night full of surprises, impressive live performances and disappointing rounds of no-shows, Teni emerged the biggest winner at the 2019 Headies. The singer who recently released her “Billionaire” EP walked home with four awards out of her six nominations including Best Pop Single for her 2018 monster hit, ‘Case‘. She was closely followed by Falz who bagged three awards including Best Album for the critics’ darling “Moral Instruction“. The biggest surprise of the night was Burna Boy who secured only two awards out of his eight nominations as well as Adekunle Gold who didn’t win any awards of his five nominations.
For the coveted Next Rated Award, Rema edged over Victor AD, Lyta, Zlatan and Joe Boy to secure the category that traditionally comes with a car. The Mavin Records‘ superstar, therefore, joins the ranks of Wizkid, Davido, Wande Coal, Asa, Reekado Banks who have won that award.
