“I noticed most Nigerians embraced secular music more often than gospel musics because we have more artistes producing secular music than gospel musics and Nigerians are easily attracted to worldly songs because of the kind of lifestyles the artistes live.”

On what his creative process looks like, he said “actually, my creative process is fun. There’s no tension, no strictness, no 100 percent seriousness as I tend to create beautifully well, under relaxed state of mind, body and soul”.
Speaking about how influencers have added value and growth to his music career, he stated that all the things I’m able to achieve is because of the love from my family and you guys. These things have kept me going. And there’s so much talent out there too. Also, as Nigerians, we love to excel wherever we find ourselves.
On his plans for the rest of the year, Coldman said he hope to work with well-known people across different walks of life, just as he would love to improve his writing abilities and have a song produced with top celebrities.
