The country's president Bajram Begaj granted Dua Lipa Albanian citizenship on Sunday, Nov. 27. Dua Lipa has dispensed a decree of Albanian democracy ahead of the nation's 110th anniversary of independence from the Ottoman Empire, as per the Associated Press. President Begaj said that the 27-year-old singer, born in London to Albanian parents, was receiving the honour for spreading the fame of Albanians internationally.

She will be an Albanian with papers, too, Dua Lipa said before taking her citizenship oath at Tirana City Hall. She shared the news in an Instagram post, posting photos and videos from the ceremony to demonstrate the great moment.

"Thank you President Bajram Begaj and Mayor @erionveliaj for this honour got my Albanian citizenship!!" she wrote in the caption.

President Begaj posted the news on Twitter Sunday morning, photos from the ceremony with Dua Lipa, her mom and dad, Dukagjin and Anesa Lipa, and brothers and sisters, Rina and Gjin Lipa

"Happy to give the only @DUALIPA the decree of Albanian citizenship," the post read. "She has made us pride with her transnational career and engagement in important social causes."


Dua Lipa's parents immigrated to England in 1992 after fleeing the Balkans due to friction and political instability, as per the press release from UNICEF. Her parents fled a war-torn region and built a life for themselves in a new place," explained Dua Lipa in the release. "And each one of the refugee children she met has parents just like her own, who have tried to make the best decisions they could for their families.

Throughout the years, Dua Lipa has enjoyed her heritage. She and her father founded the Sunny Hill Foundation, a welfare organisation that aims to assist the people of Kosovo. In Aug. 2022, Dua Lipa was titled Honorary Ambassador of Kosovo by President Vjosa Osmani. 

Dua Lipa also reported that honour on social media, posting several photos from the occasion, like a letter from President Osmani addressed Dua Lipa. Aside from being a world-class and once-in-a-generation musician, she is also a role model for many girls and women worldwide as a forthright and conscientious activist, it read in part.
