We Finally Found What Celebrities Wore to the Headies 2022

September 7, 2022

The lack of pictures from this year’s Headies has been very suspect, so we decided to find out why. It took some Gmail-account-protection level of commitment, and some bribery, but we’re finally sure it happened. People actually attended The Headies Awards 2022.

Find attached our evidence: photos of what our POP stars wore to the 15th edition of the most prestigious African music awards, in Atlanta, US.

BY THE WAY: Pros and Cons of Hosting the Headies Award in the United States

AG BABY

Our very own Adekunle Gold (aka Simi’s husband) went full Rockstar in a red sequined pantsuit. Does he look like a red disco ball from an 80s highlife gathering that got some people’s parents pregnant? Yes, but AG Baby can do no wrong in our eyes.

Osas Ighodaro

The host of the day channelled modern owambe glam in a floor-length glittery gold dress [We’re not sure if it’s gold or yellow, tbh]. The matching gloves and thigh-high slit screamed golden-age Hollywood, to remind us she’s in fact a movie star.

The YBNL Boys

The president and top citizens of the “Yahoo Boy No Laptop” nation came out to show us they run Afrobeats right now. Asake, Fireboy DML and Olamide Baddo gave us what I can only describe as Afro-mafia vibes.

Damola actually arrived at The Headies 2022 in a different jacket. Green or red, they both killed.

Ayra Starr

The reigning princess of Mavin, and Headies viewers’ choice winner, chose simplicity in a silver metallic halter dress. The one stripped glove gave it some edginess, and the golden cornrows is what every Nigerian secondary school girl wishes they could take to school.

AY Makun

Future grooms have a new style inspiration in AY’s gold-detail double-breasted pantsuit. But first, you need to find love, which you can learn how to do with this article we wrote on finding long-lasting love.

Waje

We heard Waje recently went gospel. She confirms it with this outfit. If not for the low neckline, it could’ve been mistaken for church wear. Which isn’t so bad, actually.

Ladipoe

Nothing says dapper rapper like a well-tailored co-ord. Poe (L) has given the waistcoat a new meaning with this look.

Leader of The Revival [@ladipoe] Verified. (2022, September 6). “I had a lot more to say, but most of all I want to thank my day one supporters who saw moments like these before I did. Another year. Another Headie 🏆⚡️” [Video]. Instagram.

Mr P of P-Square

Peter Okoye stuck with the 00s hip-hop style of his glory days, and we love the consistency. It reminds us he’s been around and has stayed relevant for a long time. The only thing missing is Paul in a black version of this fit, shouting, “we bring it back again!” to make the nostalgia complete.
