Dua Lipa has been awarded the title of Honorary Ambassador for Kosovo.

The 26-year-old pop superstar, who grew up in Kosovo, took to social media on Saturday (August 6) to announce that Kosovo President Vjosa Osmani had presented her with the prestigious title.

“It’s an honor and a privilege to be able to represent my country around the world and to continue my work and endeavors globally to see us make our mark and make a difference,” Lipa captioned a photo gallery on Instagram. “The young people of Kosovo deserve the right to visa liberalization, freedom to travel and to dream big. Thank you.”

The carousel features several snapshots, including the “Levitating” singer receiving a special medallion from Osmani, along with images of official certificates and a typed letter inviting the artist to the president’s office to receive the honor.

Osmani also shared several behind-the-scenes photos from the ceremony on her person Instagram account.

“Today I gave the title of Honorary Ambassador of the Republic of Kosovo to Dua Lipa because she continues to honor our country in every step and every performance,” the president wrote in Albanian next to the gallery. “I thanked her, on behalf of all citizens of the Republic of Kosovo, for everything she has done and makes our voice heard all over the world.”

Osmani’s memo also recognized Lipa’s father, Dukagjin Lipa, who, with his daughter, founded the annual Sunny Hill Festival in Kosovo’s capital, Pristina. This year’s four-day music event was launched on Aug. 4 and features performances by Lipa, J Balvin, Diplo and many others.
