try this,

$customer = $objectManager->get('\Magento\Customer\Api\Data\CustomerInterfaceFactory')->create();
$objectManager->get('\Magento\Customer\Api\CustomerRepositoryInterface')->save($customer, $hashedPassword);

  • with setData() it will mapped your value to your customer attribute. You can use it like this. I already did, and it works fine for me.
