Apart from the best reggae category which has five nominees, every other category has six nominees each.
And speaking about Crystal Awards 2015, its founder, Timi Adegoke said this year’s nominees were not voted for, but were chosen by a nomination committee and that the winners will also be chosen, not voted for, and that’s why they can’t reveal the names of the people on the committees so that none of the artists can go and start meeting them to influence them to choose him, her as a winner.
