Mama Sinmi’s Chop House is the premier restaurant for authentic West African cuisine in Oklahoma City. Once a month, the owners Ijeoma and Andrew Popoola host Lasgidi Lounge for young professionals in the OKC area. Their restaurant transforms into a lounge setting with a variety of West African appetizers to please all palettes. The ambience is set with dim lights and the latest afrobeats music playing in the background as attendees chat the night away. The event provides an atmosphere that is prime for networking as young professionals interact and perhaps bond over their love for the food and music. When asked how she would describe the Lasgidi Lounge, Ijeoma simply states “a space where young professionals from all backgrounds interact and build lasting bonds while enjoying great food”. If reside in OKC or ever find yourself in the area, do check out Mama Sinmi’s restaurant and if you are lucky enough to be around for a Lasgidi event, you will not be disappointed.
