Sasha Obama has gone viral on social media after she featured in a friend’s since-deleted TikTok. Over the weekend, the 19-year-old was seen lip-synching with a friend to Moneybagg Yo’s Said Sum remix featuring the City Girls rappers JT and Yung Miami. The clip was later shared to Twitter, where people identified the former first daughter and expressed their happiness at seeing her having fun.
“Seeing that video of Sasha Obama on TikTok rapping City Girls just really warmed my heart,” one person tweeted. Another said: “Sasha Obama would be famous even if her dad wasn’t Barack, we honour her always.” “I didn’t know how much I needed that video of Sasha Obama. Literally my fav,” another person wrote.
Rapper JT also shared her appreciation for the video, retweeting it with a heart-eyes emoji. After the video went viral on Twitter, it was removed from Obama’s friend’s TikTok, along with other clips featuring the teenager and her friends dancing. Obama, the youngest daughter of former president Barack Obama and wife Michelle Obama, is currently a sophomore at the University of Michigan.
In May, the 19-year-old praised her mother during her Netflix documentary Becoming, in which she said: “I’m excited for her to be proud of what she’s done.“Because I think that that’s the most important thing for a human to do, is be proud of themselves.” Currently, Sasha and her sister Malia, 22, are taking classes at home amid the cov-19, according to their mother.
“My girls are studying from home,” the former first lady explained during an Instagram Live conversation with Jennifer Lopez in September. “We’re itching to get back to campus, but things are just confusing … not quite safe. I’m just glad that they’re staying put, even if they’re sick of me.”

Tira Kelker-Mason – Why is this news? Leave that child alone. Sasha is just being a teenager, I saw the video. She was fully dressed, not twerking or anything just rapping. Let her live!
Jerad Simpson – There were pictures of Obama in the oval office with his suit jacket off and his sleeves rolled up on his dress shirt and fox News lost their mind. They thought it wasn’t presidential and was a disgrace. Lol oh how times have changed.
