Welcome to Arambe

A Yoruba proverb: Ara m be ti mo fe da, k'aiye ma pa kadara mi da.

(All things being equal, there are wonders that I will perform.)

The word 'Arambe' is coined from the Yoruba saying...

"ara m be ti mo fe da"

- there are wonders that I want to perform - and the Swahili word "harambee" meaning work together.


Arambe Productions Presents:
"The Paddies of Parnell Street"

(Based on Jimmy Murphy’s
The Kings of the Kilburn High Road)

Written and directed by Bisi Adigun

In the mid-1990s a group of Nigerian teenagers arrived in Ireland at different dates in search of greener pastures. Like many Nigerian immigrants their plan was to spend a couple of years in Ireland, obtain an Irish passport, save some money and return home to set themselves up nicely.

Fifteen years on the boys of those days have become men, but things have not turned out as they had hoped. The Paddies of Parnell Street is set on the day four old friends gather in a Nigerian restaurant to celebrate Daps’ 36th birthday.

It is a unique opportunity for the friends to reunite with one another, reminisce about the past, wonder about the future and take stock of their lives as immigrants in Ireland as well as their place in the ever changing Nigeria they left behind many years ago.
