Sasha, Cardi B, And Offset
Sasha, the youngest daughter of former U.S. President Barack Obama and former U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama, was fortunate enough to meet the artists up close during the Broccoli City Festival in Washington D.C. Hip-hop's new favorite couple Cardi B and Offset headlined the festival alongside fellow rappers Miguel and Migos.
The 16-year-old hanged out with Offset, real name Kiari Kendrell Cephus, and her baby mama Cardi B. backstage before the latter took to the stage to perform her set for the crowd. Sasha appeared calm and relaxed as she posed for photos with the "Bodak Yellow" singer and Offset backstage. Wearing a white cropped-top and distressed jeans, Sasha smiled for the camera and chilled out with the rappers as though they were her closest friends.
Several photos of the trio have since made the rounds online and netizens are freaking out in jealousy over Sasha's luck. Meanwhile, others also expressed their excitement for Obama's daughter and others cracked jokes.
"Sasha Obama is definitely the Obama who has been writing down everything they been saying about her Pops & she's gonna want all the smoke when she's old enough. She's gonna be President in like 30 years," one Twitter user wrote.

Shortly after the backstage encounter, Cardi B, real name Belcalis Almanzar, shared a message about the former president Obama's term. She expressed her support for Sasha's father.
"Obama did enough for this country and let's not forget! He did it while the house was Republican," Cardi B tweeted.
Sasha has proven herself to be a music enthusiast. Aside from Washington's Broccoli City Festival, she also joined the crowd at Lollapalooza music festival in Chicago. She also displayed her rapping skills during a chance duet with Chance the Rapper at the 2016 White House Christmas tree lighting.
Fortunately, Sasha saw Cardi B at her last performance before she goes into hiatus to focus on her baby. The Bronx-born rapper announced that the Broccoli Festival would be her last performance for "a little while" so she can take some time off before she gives birth.
