Despite the fact that she’s previously a singer, songwriter, and even a design from time to time, on Friday, Dua Lipa extra but yet another accolade to her list. “Yesterday afternoon I was awarded the title of Honourary Ambassador of Kosovo by our Madame President #VjosaOsmani,” she wrote on Twitter. “It is really an honour and a privilege to be in a position to represent my place all over the world and to keep on my operate and initiatives globally to see that we depart our mark… and make a distinction,” she continued.
Kosovo is Lipa’s hometown— a younger state in the middle of the Balkans, which declared its independence from Serbia back in 2008 (whilst Serbia has still to figure out it as an unbiased condition). It is also the dwelling of the Sunny Hill Audio Festival, initially launched by Lipa’s father and manager, Dukagjin Lipa. Sunny Hill debuted back again in 2019, showcasing artists like Miley Cyrus, Martin Garrix, and Calvin Harris, all of whom brought large quantities of publicity to this small and somewhat not known region. This year’s festival is at this time underway and will keep on by means of Aug. 8.
“The youth of Kosovo justifies the right to visa liberalization, independence to journey and to desire massive.”
Considering the fact that its inception, Lipa’s father claimed he is observed the festival covered in over 500 shops, last but not least offering the Republic of Kosovo some of the recognition it justifies, per Billboard. And evidently, Vjosa Osmani Sadriu, the President of Kosovo, agrees. “The Foreseeable future Nostalgia tour has sent waves across the music sector and the planet, and you keep on to make us immensely very pleased of your successes,” Sadriu wrote in a letter to Lipa, also posted on Twitter.
“Apart from staying a earth-class and a the moment-in-a-technology musician, you are also a job model for quite a few ladies and females throughout the environment as a forthright and conscientious activist. But earlier mentioned all, what you have carried out for the persons of Kosovo, in boosting awareness of the Republic of Kosovo is unmatched and genuinely invaluable.”
President Sadriu went on to invite the Lipa loved ones to her office environment to speak much more about “causes we both equally come to feel strongly about.” This is where by Lipa was formally awarded her new title, sharing pics with Sadriu fastening a medal close to her neck. “The youth of Kosovo deserves the suitable to visa liberalization, freedom to travel and to dream significant,” Lipa wrote on Twitter. “Thank you 🇽🇰❤️”
