Dua Lipa Named Honorary Kosovo Ambassador

A week following her headlining slot at Lollapalooza, Dua Lipa was atop the lineup at her own Sunny Hill Festival in Kosovo, where the superstar singer was also named an honorary ambassador of the European nation.

Daughter of Kosovo Albanian parents, on Friday (8.05) Lipa was bestowed the position at the ceremony organized by President Vjosa Osmani, who praised the singer’s humanitarian work both in Kosovo and abroad.

About the occasion, Osmani wrote “Aside from being a world-class and a once-in-a-generation musician, you are also a role model for many girls and women across the world as a forthright and conscientious activist.” “But above all, what you have done for the people of Kosovo, in raising awareness of the Republic of Kosovo is unmatched and truly invaluable.”

Adding to the ambassador’s post Dua took to Instagram and wrote “It’s an honor and a privilege to be able to represent my country all over the world and to continue my work and efforts globally to see that we leave our mark and make a difference.” “Today we join world voices to ask our European friends for their help to grant citizens of Kosovo visa liberalization,” Lipa wrote. “While the EU sets borders around our freedom, we will hold onto our aspirations to be set free.”

As the new appointed honorary ambassador one of her initial orders of business will be lobbying for visa liberalization for Kosovo’s citizens, a cause the internationally acclaimed musician has supported ever since she and her father founded the Sunny Hill Festival in 2018.
