Following her victory in the category of Outstanding International Song at the NAACP Image Awards on Thursday, Jamaican Grammy kid Koffee is now the proud owner of an NAACP Image Award.
The 21-year-old received the award for her summer smash “Lockdown,” which was produced by Dane Ray. In essence, the song depicts the hopes and aspirations of people recognized around the world for their laid-back but friendly personalities, who are now trapped in a bubble due to the deadly Covid-19 virus.
During the pandemic, the video was released on July 12, 2020, and featured Unruly camp leader Popcaan, as well as Dane Ray and other members of the Unruly team. Within days of its release, the summer banger’s views shot up into the millions, greatly assisting its current figure of 46 million views on Youtube.
Koffee has yet to respond to the nomination, but sources tells that she is overjoyed to have won yet another major honour.

Last year, Koffee made history by being the youngest Jamaican to win a Grammy for Best Reggae Album. Her debut album, Rapture, won her a Grammy for its commercial success, which was sparked by her breakout hit, “Toast.”
