It’s all but over. Nadir and Mayaeni don’t want to be here any more, and they’re already gone… 95 Miles Down The Road. The tension and tempers are too much to take. Can they hold it together long enough to take one final bow?
That’s the premise of the video…
But what was it like behind the scenes?
Check out “95 Miles Down The Road” the music video and the behind the scenes footage which were both directed by Mayaeni and feature Emily Rogers, Christopher Spooner, camera man Emilio Basa, and lots of good friends at PJ’s Lager House and Somewhere In Detroit.

His music is a harmonious blend of R&B, funk, jazz, hip-hop, rock and soul. On his latest album, “The Book of Jonah,” Nadir reveals a fantastic collection of songs with a positive message about everyday life.
” ‘Belly of the Whale‘ really sums up the record,” says Nadir. “It gives us the message that it may feel like the end of the world but it’s not. It’s just another day in the belly of the whale.”
“The Book of Jonah” is Nadir’s third full-length solo CD, and he’ll celebrate its release with a performance Friday at PJ’s Lager House.
“A lot of the songs are really inspired by some of the things we’ve been going through here in Detroit and Michigan,” says Nadir, whose full name is Jonah Nadir Omowale.
“It’s not as overtly political as my 2008 record when I was mad at George Bush and angry all the time. This one is a little more hopeful, and even with all of the turmoil that we and the rest of the nation — and the rest of the world, really — have been going through, I see a lot of positive signs and a lot of positive things happening.”
