Over the past few years, Afrobeats—as music and as a movement—has exploded beyond our shores and beyond our dreams. Our songs have recorded billions of streams and sat comfortably on some of the world’s biggest charts. Our music is the soundtrack to millions of videos online. Our stars have sold out the biggest arenas even as African collaborations do insane numbers.
Followed the music in honour of this explosion. As the event that recognised the arrival of our major music talents way before they conquered the world, we understand.
The significance of spreading the word about excellent music to uncharted territory. Thus, the Headies in 2022 and 2023 were held in the United States. The world got to witness what our stars of the future and our global stars will look like.
We are taking the world back home in 2024, to the land that gave rise to the music that has made everyone want to dance, inspired viral videos, and placed our continent at the forefront of popular culture worldwide.
These are returning home, ladies and gentlemen. Soon, more information.
