Dua Lipa Granted Albanian Citizenship
Albania’s president on Sunday granted citizenship to British pop star of Albanian origin Dua Lipa for what he said was the artist’s role in spreading Albanians’ fame internationally through her music. President Bajram Begaj said Lipa was granted citizenship ahead of Albania’s 110th anniversary of independence from the Ottoman Empire. Begaj said he considered it an honour to do so because Lipa has made Albanians famous throughout the world. “I will be an Albanian with papers too,” Lipa said before taking her citizenship oath at Tirana city hall.
