A week after headlining Lollapalooza, Dua Lipa is top lineup this weekend at her own Sunny Hill Festival in Kosovo. The musician was also called an honorary representative of the European country.
Lipa, the daughter of Kosovo Albanian parents, was granted the honour at a ceremony Friday held by President Vjosa Osmani, who applauded the singer’s humanitarian work both in Kosovo and abroad…
Aside from standing a world-class and a once-in-a-generation instrumentalist, you are also a role model for many women and girls across the universe as a straightforward and moral activist,” Osmani composed. “But beyond all, what you have done for the people of Kosovo, growing awareness of the Republic of Kosovo, is unpaired and truly priceless.”
Lipa counted on the ambassadorship on Instagram, “It’s an honour and a right to be capable of conveying my country all over the globe and of continuing my work and struggles globally to see that we depart our mark and make a distinction.”
Among her first needs of the business as honorary ambassador: Lobbying for visa liberalization for Kosovo’s citizens, a reason the singer advocated for throughout the Sunny Hill Festival that she and her father founded back in 2018.
“Today we join world voices to request 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.”
