Malia Obama was spotted enjoying a night out at Soho House in Malibu, California, with friends on Tuesday night, after returning from a trip to the Big Apple with her boyfriend.

The eldest daughter of former President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama sported a white crop top with a fuzzy vest and bright green pants for the outing, which she paired with black work boots. 

She kept heir long locks in braids and held onto a white tote bag. She was joined by some friends for her visit to the celebrity hot spot, and it’s unclear if her beau, Ethiopian DJ Dawit Eklund, was there.

Malia, 24, is back in California after visiting New York City with her music producer boyfriend, as the pair was seen cozying up while taking a stroll around Manhattan last week.

Malia and Dawit were first linked on July 26, when the two were caught grabbing takeout food together. Since then, they have been pictured side-by-side on numerous occasions.

In August, DailyMail.com exclusive revealed his identity; Dawit, who recently turned 33, is nine years older than Malia. 

He is the son of retired State Department officer Jon Eklund, 72, who worked at several US embassies in Africa and his Ethiopian wife Yeshi, 66.

Dawit co-founded Washington, D.C.-based record label 1432 R, which specializes in Ethiopian music. Perhaps unsurprisingly, he is also a registered Democrat. 

A 2016 Washington Post article about the label said: ‘Their music seamlessly brings together house music grooves, the stutter of U.K. garage, an uneasy electronic ambience, and – perhaps most notably – Ethiopian folk music.’

Dawit told the paper at the time: ‘Ethiopian music is super distinct. There are only four or five musical scales that they play in; each has its own meaning and attitude and mood.’ 

A separate Post piece called him ‘one of Washington’s most exciting dance music producers,’ adding: ‘It’s not because he’s splicing styles from around the globe, it’s because he spent a lot of his young life learning how to communicate with different kinds of people.’

He was educated at the International Community School in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa, before going to George Washington University where he studied International Development in Africa. 

While Malia - who previously interned on Lena Dunham's HBO series Girls in 2015 and at The Weinstein Company in 2017 - is working as a screenwriter, her younger sister, Sasha Obama (seen yesterday), 21, is also building her own life in Los Angeles

While Malia – who previously interned on Lena Dunham’s HBO series Girls in 2015 and at The Weinstein Company in 2017 – is working as a screenwriter, her younger sister, Sasha Obama (seen yesterday), 21, is also building her own life in Los Angeles 

Sasha (seen with her family in 2009) is studying at the University of Southern California - and DailyMail.com exclusively revealed a few months ago that she was in a relationship with Clifton Powell Jr., 24, who is the son of Ray actor Clifton Powell

Dawit – who also goes by David, the Anglicized version of his name – is one of four children. His father Jon was heavily involved in helping the refugee crisis caused by the war in Sudan in the early 2000s, when hundreds of thousands fled to Ethiopia to escape the fighting.

His mother Yeshi comes from a successful family of business people in Ethiopia. His sister Sara Eklund was featured in a 2019 Vogue article for introducing menstrual cups to Ethiopia.

Malia – who is currently working as a screenwriter on Donald Glover’s upcoming Amazon show – moved to Los Angeles last year, after graduating from Harvard, to pursue a career as a screenwriter.

In March, Donald revealed that he had given the 24-year-old her first job as a writer on his new series, which is reportedly about ‘a Beyoncé-type character,’ with the actor calling her ‘amazingly talented’ and ‘really focused.’ 

‘She’s just like, an amazingly talented person,’ Donald, 38, who is also known by his stage name Childish Gambino, told Vanity Fair at the time. ‘She’s really focused, and she’s working really hard.’ 

He did not share how Malia landed the job after she graduated from college but he added that he believed she has a promising future in the industry. 

While Malia – who previously interned on Lena Dunham’s HBO series Girls in 2015 and at The Weinstein Company in 2017 – is working as a screenwriter, her younger sister, Sasha Obama, 21, is also building her own life in Los Angeles. 

In April, Sasha and Malia's mother, Michelle, opened up about how both of her daughters are all grown up during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The family is seen in 2015

The 21-year-old is studying at the University of Southern California, where she just began her final year, after transferring from the University of Michigan.

DailyMail.com exclusively revealed a few months ago that she was in a relationship with Clifton Powell Jr., 24, who is the son of Ray actor Clifton Powell. 

Clifton Jr. and Sasha are understood to have met after she relocated to the West Coast, and he is already close with the family, as he has been seen hanging out with Malia a few times in recent months.

Ellen, 64, reminded the former First Lady of how Sasha and Malia had first visited the show when they were little girls who wanted to see the Jonas Brothers. But over a decade later, they’ve graduated from boybands to boyfriends.

‘Now they’re bringing grown men home,’ Michelle said. ‘Now they have boyfriends and real lives and all that stuff. They have grown up right before our very eyes and they are doing well.’

While the mom-of-two gushed about the ‘amazing young women’ her daughters have become – ‘Women, I know! Scary,’ she said – and divulged that they were both now dating, she was much more discreet about the details of their love lives and didn’t share any further details.
