Talking about heartbreak, it's one topic we all have one thing or two to contribute. Breakfast as we Nigerians have termed it isn't necessarily a damaged relationship, it can arise from failed expectations too.

Often I see people say things like heartbreak won't stop them from loving, meaning,love is such a beautiful experience that you don't mind being down over and over again, to find the one for you.

Speaking for myself, the one time I was really heartbroken, I'm not sure I ever want to experience that again but living in the reality of that pain would hinder my growth, so anyway, I had to pick myself up and move. Not only did I discover that, I saw a lot of other things I would've been blind to if I didn't experience all that.

This is a song from the musical: The Greatest Showman. The same was the story of Barnum. He was in blind pursuit of ambition, forgot the point of his hustle and eventually realized he had lost what mattered most to him. If failure didn't set in, he wouldn't have but he eventually realized he had lost everything and he had to go make things right.

It's an honor making a video with the great @jaydrπŸ₯³πŸ’ƒπŸ½. I had a wonderful time making this collab with @jaydr. Wonderful is an understatement infact, it was fun! You can imagine how many times we had to film individually. I'm glad we could make this happen and we hope you enjoyed it! πŸ₯‚

It's a pleasure to have done this with you too, I recall when the idea started and we were wondering how to pull it through, I m glad thought became action and action produced results. To be sincere, I have considered doing a collab with many Artistes on Hive, my first was with @mipiano , how she shocked me with her awesome performance still awes me, now you made look like every bit of ease with butter. It was a pleasure and so much fun and I see us doing more soonest.

Like @sekani said, it wasn't an easy task to pull so we wanted to share some bloopers hehehe

Lyrics

I saw the sun begin to dim
And felt that winter wind
Blow cold
A man learns who is there for him
When the glitter fades and the walls won't hold
'Cause from that rubble what remains
Can only be what's true
If all was lost
There's more I gained
'Cause it led me back to you

From now on
These eyes will not be blinded by the lights
From now on
What's waited 'til tomorrow starts tonight
Tonight
Let this promise in me start
Like an anthem in my heart
From now on
From now on

I drank champagne with kings and queens
The politicians praised my name
But those were someone else's dreams
The pitfalls of the man I became
For years and years
I chased their cheers
A crazy speed of always needing more
But when I stop
And see you here
I remember who all this was for

And from now on
These eyes will not be blinded by the lights
From now on
What's waited 'til tomorrow starts tonight
It starts tonight
And let this promise in me start
Like an anthem in my heart
From now on
From now on
From now on

And we will come back home
And we will come back home
Home again!
And we will come back home
And we will come back home
Home again!
And we will come back home
And we will come back home
Home again!

From now on!

And we will come back home
And we will come back home
Home again!
And we will come back home
From now on!
And we will come back home
From now on!
Home again!
And we will come back home
From now on!
And we will come back home
From now on!

Yes!

Home again!
And we will come back home
From now on!
And we will come back home
From now on!
Home again!

From now on
These eyes will not be blinded by the lights
From now on
What's waited 'til tomorrow starts tonight
It starts tonight
Let this promise in me start
Like an anthem in my heart

From now on

From now on
From now on
From now on

And we will come back home
And we will come back home
Home again!
And we will come back home
And we will come back home
Home again!
And we will come back home
And we will come back home
Home again!

From now on
From now on
Home again!

From now on
From now on
Home again!

Oh beautiful heavens!!! You guys are so awesome, how did you both pull this song in less than one week? It's crazy really!! I loved the synergy and Sekani you are a star and you know it.

@jaydr you did really well with the male part, I loved how you pushed yourself towards the end, it was beautiful to watch.

Good job guys, I'm so proud of this performance ❀️.

Well well, I was beginning to ruminate on the effort you both put in this duet and I hoped the bloopers would be more of a video rather than a GIF haha. The synchronization, the harmony and the synergy. It was absolutely beautiful. I enjoyed the beginning probably because it was sombre. But.... Magnificent. You both did a great job, wow.

I'm so impressed with this duet... You two killed it!

@jaydr 😊 I'm hailing you specially, those low tones are so cool when you take them.

I love the song, still have it in my song list after seeing the movie countless times 😁 I'm glad to listen your own version.

I really don't want to imagine the stress you both went through to get this done, I'll only say "Well done" ❀️

Ohh wow this is so beautiful. You not only bring style but you both @sekani & @jaydr in excellent quality.
Putting up a solo video is much work not to talk of two separate ones done in two separate locations. That's really amazing πŸ‘
Thanks so kindly for this great piece. I wish I could get everyone on the blockchain to see this!!! Love you guys loads ❀ πŸ’“

Wow... This is super super great
I just can imagine how hard it was putting something like this together because from the look of the video you guys are in different locations but having to record those sensitive parts that both of you look at each other is recommendable...
Your voices sounded lovely together and your choice of song is actually mind-blowing, you guys did excellently well with the video editing too... Congratulations dear @sekani and @jaydr

Damn! I could not but help myself from smiling all through. Everything was amazing!

I don't know if it's just me, but I found the parts that you were both looking at each other so adorable...😁 I was like, "awww..."πŸ˜‚

I loved everything, but I so much loved the beginning. It had a very warm feel to it.
The whole cover has a particular vibe, in fact. You know all those songs that will make you feel like a gorilla and can do anything, when in fact, you are one skinny monkey, but it'll give you that ginger that you can do anything? Yeah, this cover of yours is just like it... I love it!

I think anybody that does Open Mic here on Hive can totally relate to the bloopers and all. It is all part of the process. And they make it all the more beautiful.

I know how hard it is to do a song, let alone a collab. You guys, @jaydr and @sekani, are amazing. More abegg (I'm not sure @jaydr is Nigerian. He looks Canadian.) I love your baritone too, jaydr. We baritone singers struggle often to find the right songs, or even deliver well on any song, considering our low vocals. But you found your way around it. Great job!

πŸ€­πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ the looks ba? @jaydr's acting is not from around here πŸ’₯, I just followed his lead.

I actually didn't expect we'd pull it off this good, cause the song is not easy but thanks to his awesome editing skills πŸ€—.

I'm not sure @jaydr is Nigerian. He looks Canadian

You sef dey reason am? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Thank you very much @olujay, I'm super glad you like itπŸ€—β€
