Who scored the most wins at the Headies 2018?

Headies

Davido earned the Best Pop Single award for his song ‘If’, a Song Of The Year for ‘Fia’ and an Artiste Of The Year. Simi earned Best Recording of the Year for ‘Joromi’, Best R&B Single for ‘Smile for Me’ and Album Of The Year for ‘Simisola’. Wizkid earned Best R&B/Pop Album for ‘Sounds from the Other Side’, as well as Best Music Video and Headies Viewers’ Choice award for ‘Come Closer’.

We also think that M.I Abaga deserves some recognition, as his track with a clever name ‘You Rappers Should Fix Up Your Lives’ got him two wins. He took the Best Rap Single and Lyricist on the Roll awards home.
