Dua Lipa Celebrates After Being Granted Albanian Citizenship

Dua Lipa is celebrating her heritage.

The 27-year-old Future Nostalgia superstar was granted citizenship to Albania by president Bajram Begaj on Sunday (November 27), just ahead of the Albania’s 110th anniversary of independence from the Ottoman Empire.

The president called it an honor for himself, and credited the singer for her role in spreading Albanians’ fame internationally with her music.

“I will be an Albanian with papers too,” Dua said before taking her citizenship oath at Tirana City Hall, via ET Canada.

Dua was born in London, England in 1995. Her Albanian parents, Anesa and Dukagjin Lipa, are from Kosovo.

“It is an indescribable great joy with such acceptance, love and everything,” she said of the citizenship. She then took a passport photo, was fingerprinted and signed an application form for an identity card and passport.

Dua will be performing in Tirana’s main Skanderbeg Square on Monday (November 28) to commemorate Independence Day. Congratulations, Dua!
