Popular Nigerian comedian Bovi and actress Nancy Isime has been unveiled as the host for the annual Headies Award show.

The 14th Headies award show is set to hold in January 2021 and the award nominees have since been released.

However, what got social media users talking was the jungle boy photoshoot concept used for the unveiling of the hosts.

Reacting to the photo concept, social media users slammed Headies and the Photographer as they argued that the photography work was very poor.

However, this is not the first time Nancy Isime is hosting the Headies. In 2019, the actress and rapper Reminisce were the host for the award show.

The much-anticipated list of nominees for the most prestigious annual award show, Headies has been released.

The list for the 14th edition of the show was released on Friday, 4 December, via their social media page.
