Since she is a former First Daughter, many people are curious about Malia Obama’s love life and professional pursuits since the Obamas departed the White House.
Malia Obama, the eldest daughter of former president Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama, was most recently linked to her Harvard University classmate Rory Farquharson, whom she began seeing in 2017. It appears like Malia now has a new boyfriend in her life.
Photos obtained by Page Six appear to show Malia, 24, on a date with music producer Dawit Eklund, 33. Dawit donned a beige T-shirt and green shorts with a portrait of Bob Marley on the left leg, while Malia sported a white crop top and loose-fitting green leggings when they were taken together at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art on August 4, 2022. They were also caught cuddling up to each other, with Dawit’s hand on Malia’s waist while she stroked his back.
Malia Obama lived in Washington, D.C. with her father as President from January 2009 to January 2017, and it was there that Dawit co-founded the record label 1432 R.
According to the Daily Mail, Dawit’s dad is former State Department employee Jon Eklund, who served at several different American embassies in Africa. Yeshi Eklund, his mother, is an Ethiopian native. The Daily Mail reports that this is Malia and Dawit’s third public date after their July 26, 2022 lunch and their August 2, 2022 stroll through Los Angeles.
Sasha, the other daughter Barack and Michelle share with Malia is currently dating Clifton Power Jr., the son of actor Clifton Powell. Michelle made the announcement during an April 2022 appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. They were big fans of the Jonas Brothers.
In an interview on “The Bill Simmons” podcast in 2020, Barack opened up about what it was like to quarantine with Malia and her most recent boyfriend, Rory Farquharson. He’s from the UK.
He added, “He’s British. Wonderful young man and he was sort of stuck because there was a whole visa thing and he had a job set up. So we took him in, and I didn’t want to like him, but he’s a good kid. The only thing you discover . . . young men eat! It’s weird to watch them consume food. My grocery bill went up about 30 percent.”

What the family did throughout their quarantine was another topic he covered. Like many other families, he added, “Like I think a lot of families, we went through that first month where we were playing games every night and doing a little arts and crafts projects and then slowly, they started to get a little bored with us.”
Barack also told InStyle in November 2020 about how “badass” Malia has become. “Malia, she is just buoyant. She’s somebody who enjoys people, enjoys life, and enjoys conversation,” he said at the time. “She’s never bored, which is a badass quality that can take you places.”
