The Holy Trinity of Nigerian music, Burna Boy, Davido and Wizkid have all been nominated for the African Artiste of the year award at the 15th edition of the Headies award.

Nigeria dominated the seven-man shortlist with three nominations  in a category which also has Black Coffee from South Africa, Diamond Patninumz from Tanzania, Soolking from Algeria and Aya Nakamura from Mali 

The 2022 Headies will hold at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre, Atlanta, in September 2022.

It will be the first time the Headies, usually held in Lagos, will take place outside Nigeria since it was founded in 2006 by media entrepreneur Ayo Animashaun.
