Rita Ora - Rita Ora Plans Kosovo Show

Picture:

Rita Ora is planning a surprise show in Kosovo.

The 'How We Do (Party)' singer - whose parents are Kosovo Albanian - is set to go back to her birthplace to celebrate 100 years of Albanian independence, after being invited by president Atifete Jahjaga.

She exclusively told BANG Showbiz: ''I have been invited by the president of Kosovo to go back on November 28 to celebrate the 100 years independence so I may do a few acoustic songs for them as a surprise.''

Rita has a strong affinity with her home country, which she and her parents left when she was less than a year old due to the Balkan conflict, and is looking forward to going back for the first time since she signed her record deal.

She added: ''I used to go back there all the time in the summertime, but I've not been back for three years now. My favourite thing about it is the people, they love life and enjoy themselves a lot, and are really supportive of me, which I appreciate.''

Kosovo is also home to one of Rita's favourite dishes, and she's looking forward to eating traditional spinach pie with her mum.

She said: ''I'm not a very good cook, but my mum makes the best spinach pie. I can make it with my mum and that's my favourite one. It doesn't sound that exciting, but it's really good. It takes about three hours to make, with all the pastry and layers.''

Rita's debut album, 'ORA' is released on August 27.
