Dance icon Kaffy and standup comedian Bovi have been chosen to host the 2015 edition of Nigeria’s most prestigious annual music awards show, The Headies, holding on December 30 at the Landmark Events Centre, Lagos.

Speaking after she was revealed as this year’s co-host, Kaffy commented, “I’m really, really excited. This is like a dream come true for me because this is Nigeria’s biggest annual music event and it’s going to be such a rush to get up in front of all those thousands of people present and the millions watching on television at home and present awards to Nigeria’s biggest artistes. It’s an honour for me and I just can’t wait for December 30! I’m sure Bovi is excited as well!”
