This year’s Headies promises to be fun-filled and feature a lot of Nigerian great artistes. Leading the pack is Burna Boy who is arguably having the best moment of his career.

How to watch the Headies Award 2024 live

The Headies Award 2024 will be shown live only on HipTV. They have the sole broadcasting right to award shows. HipTV is a cable television channel in Nigeria, headquartered in Ikeja, Lagos. The channel is owned by Ayo Animashaun, a Nigerian entrepreneur in the entertainment industry. The award show is sponsored by another of Ayo’s companies, Hip Hop World Magazine.

HipTV is currently showing on MultiChoice DSTV and GOTV. So all subscribers of the cable network can watch the Headies Award 2024 Live. Watch HipTV on DSTV channel 324 and on GOTV channel 74 in Nigeria.

Alternatively, if you are not a subscriber of either of the cable platforms, you can watch HipTV live on YouTube. The award show will be live-streamed on HipTV’s official YouTube channel.

But I wouldn’t put much hope in this alternative method if I were you. During 2022 Headies, the livestream stopped working on YouTube in the middle of the show and never came back on till the show ended. The company later apologized saying it was a technical fault.
