The NAFCA Special Honors was established in 2011 by the Nollywood & African Film Critics’ Awards to grace the lives and achievements of African luminaries. These honorary awards are awarded to recognize contributions over the whole of a career, rather than or in addition to single contributions of an individual. The NAFCA Special Honors also recognize outstanding community leaders whose professional careers have been marked by extraordinary personal and professional accomplishments. The NAFCA Special Honors were presented for the first time in 2011 to President Nelson Mandela.  Recipients of this award in subsequent years include President Yahya Jammeh of The Gambia.
