Kiss Daniel_headies2016

Kiss Daniel, whose debut album, New Era, has been critically acclaimed, scooped the nominations in the following categories of Best R&B/Pop Album; Best Pop Single (Mama); Album of The Year (New Era); Producer of the Year (Mama- Young John) and Hip hop World Revelation of the Year.

The youngster was tied by multi-talented R&B star Darey Art-Alade, who also netted five nominations in the following categories of: Recording of the Year; Best R&B/Pop Album; Best R&B Single; Best Vocal Performance (Male) and Producer of the Year (Pray For Me -Oscar Herman-Ackah).

Darey was trailed by another very successful artiste, Wizkid, who shares with Adekunle Gold four nominations apiece.

Wizkid, who in the last one month won five prestigious awards including Artiste of the Year at MAMA & AFRIMA, would also be in contention to cap it with the Headies 2016 Artiste of The Year honour.

The StarBoy Records leading man also bagged nomination in the following categories of Song of the Year (Baba Nla); Best Pop Single (Baba Nla) and Producer of the Year (Legendury Beats– Baba Nla).

YBNL Fresh face Adekunle Gold also appears a square peg in a square hole with four nominations in the categories of Recording of The Year; Best Pop Single (Pick Up); Best Alternative Song (Pick Up) and Song of the Year (Pick Up).

Afro-Pop phenomenon and DKM Records boss D’Banj is back in the loop. The Kokomaster gleaned three Headies nominations with his blown away song Emergency. The song fetched D’Banj following nominations of Recording of the Year; Best Pop Single and Best Music Video.

In the ever contentious and highly-coveted NEXT RATED categories, YCee; Tekno; Mr. Eazi; Humblesmith and Aramide are to slug it out.

The BEST RAP ALBUM category will be a straight fight between the mentor, Olamide and his protege, Lil Kesh. In this non-voting category, the YBNL frontman’s album Eyan Maywether and his boy’s YAGI have been shortlisted for the crown alongside Ill Bliss‘s Powerful and Falz The Badh Guy‘ sophomore Stories That Touch.

The nominees list which had 21 award categories, took into consideration, songs released between Jult 2015 and June 2016.

The awards ceremony will be holding in Lagos in December.
