The 2016 Headies awards went down at the Eko Convention Centre, Eko Hotels & Suites, yesterday. Though there was palpable anticipation and excitement before the event, the organisers put up a good show, in spite of the economic recession and dearth of sponsors.
The absence of winners, to pick up their awards, seeming celebrities boycott, low quality production are among pitfalls that trailed the 2016 edition of the awards.
Here are some of the comments made by Nigerians during and after the show.

Wizkid has just dropped his Daddy Yo song at the same time the Headies is going on. So petty ?

After headies 2015 I knew the credibility of the Headies is to be question, I thought headies needs time to restructure for a come back.

#headies2016: The Headies shouldn’t even rent any venue next year. Let them just deliver the awards to the winners via Konga!!!

Next #headies should be done virtually whilst winners receive their prizes via jumia. We enjoyed it better online #headies2016
