How to watch the Headies Award 2019 live
The Headies Award 2019 will be shown live only on HipTV. They have the sole broadcasting right to award show. 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 company, 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 2019 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 platform, you can watch HipTV live on YouTube. The award show will be live-streamed on HipTV’s official YouTube channel.
But I won’t put much hope on this alternative method if I was you. During 2018 Headies, the live stream 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.
