#14thHeadies: See Full List Of Winners

The 14th Headies Award, unlike the past ones, was held virtually (due to coronavirus restrictions) at the Eko Hotels and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos, on February 21.

This is the first time fans and guests were not gathered together to witness the recognition of their favourite artistes.

Most parts of the ceremony were pre-recorded including some aspects of the red-carpet which kick-off at 5.00 pm.

In observing the Covid-19 protocols, the winners came to the hall for their awards and went back to their separate rooms.
