On December 4, 2020, Nigeria’s premier music award show announced nominations for their upcoming event. The year-in-review is between July 2019 and September 2020.

This will be the 14th edition of an award heralded by Ayo Animashaun and his company, HipHop World. Nigerian stars like Burna Boy, Fireboy, Wizkid and more lead nominations.

Wurld leads the way with six nominations.

This year will see the new category, Songwriter of The Year. Album categories of Pop/R&B have also been split into two different categories. There will also be a new category for Best Alternative Album. Following in the footsteps of the 2019 nominations, the 2020 Headies are incredible inclusive.
