A Yoruba language production, Alarambara shines the spotlight on five friends, young, fun-loving women who face the modern challenge of balancing the demands of the home front and all aspects of their lives Nollywood star, Mosun Filani is Sisi Oge, the lead character whose advice and great tips help to keep her friends together – flighty Anike, the slightly naïve Iyawo, aspiring flirt, Bisi and Iya Alaje whose avowed love of money will soon get her into hot water with her husband.
Because it is true-to-life, Alarambara from the get-go, shows how an action as seemingly minor as choosing a detergent for one’s laundry needs can have wide-reaching consequences as Anike and Iyawo discover in the maiden episode, Laws of Attraction.
Meanwhile, Iya Alaje whose prior announcement of money being her new paramour and her pursuit of it rocks the boat of her marriage in episode two, Birds of a Feather. And it is a crisis that reaches its crescendo with the Baba of the house announcing his own plans to bring in a second Iyawo. But guess who comes to the rescue?
