Lots of celebrities have dual citizenship, either because they moved countries and applied for it, because they're the children of immigrants, or for other more specific reasons.
Dua Lipa has been granted her Albanian citizenship in a ceremony in an oath-taking ceremony hosted by the country’s president, Bajram Begaj on November 27. Though the ceremony was in the Albanian language, Billboard reports that Begaj granted Lipa citizenship for her efforts to elevate the status of Albania in music internationally. The singer was born and raised in the UK, but her parents are of Kosovo Albanian descent, and she and her father famously launched the Sunny Hill Foundation, through which they hold concerts in Kosovo whose funds go towards charity for locals. The singer shared a series of photos and videos of the ceremony to her Instagram and wrote, "Thank you President Bajram Begaj and Mayor [Erion Veliaj] for this honour ~ got my Albanian citizenship!!"
