Headies Awards 2018: Bovi and Seyi Shay To Host 12th Edition
Bovi Ugboma, actor and comedian, will host the 2018 Headies alongside Seyi Shay, an R&B singer.
The hosts of the 12th edition of the Headies were on Wednesday unveiled by Smooth Productions, organisers of the awards.
It is the second time Bovi will be hosting the awards while it’s Seyi Shay’s first attempt.
In 2015, the comedian anchored the event alongside Kafayat ‘Kaffy’ Shafau-Ameh, a dancer and choreographer.
A year prior, Bovi and Toke Makinwa were announced as hosts of the awards but Basketmouth was named a last-minute replacement for the comedian.
Seyi Shay, meanwhile, has recorded her version of the theme song of the 2018 Headies.
The artistes with the lion’s share of Headies nominations are Simi, Wizkid, and Davido.
Maleek Berry, Mayorkun and Johnny Drille were nominated for the coveted next rated category of the Headies. Also nominated are Chocolate City’s Dice Ailes and Zoro.
The Headies will take place on May 5 at the EKO Hotels, Lagos.
