Meaning of NAACP? - National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). According to Wikipedia: "The NAACP Image Award is an annual awards ceremony presented by the U.S.-based National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) to honor outstanding performances in film, television, music, and literature. Similar to other awards, like the Oscars and the Grammys, the over 40 categories of the Image Awards are voted on by the award organization's members (in this case, NAACP members). Honorary awards (similar to the Academy Honorary Award) have also been included, such as the President's Award, the Chairman's Award, the Entertainer of the Year, and the Hall of Fame Award."

History of NAACP, according to Wikipedia: "

"The award ceremony was first presented on August 13, 1967,[1] and it was first nationally televised in 1994 on the Fox Network. There was no awards ceremony in 1973 or 1995. The first live broadcast of the event, also on the Fox Network, occurred in 2007 for its 38th edition (up until 2007, the ceremony had been broadcast with tape delay) and the annual ceremonies usually take place in or around the Los Angeles, United States area, in February or early March. The 44th edition aired on NBC. Sources have had trouble verifying the winners in the top categories from 1983 to 1995.
The New York firm Society Awards manufactures the trophy since its redesign in 2008."


Davido and Tiwa Savage got nominated for "Outstanding International Song" alongside other artistes, such as: Buju Banton and Original Koffee.
