Nazia Hassan, a phenomenal pop-singer who needs no introduction, left this world and her ardent fans in utter shock eighteen years ago but still reigning supreme in everyone’s heart.
Born in 1965, Ms. Hassan embarked on her remarkable singing-journey at the early age of ten by appearing in Pakistan Television’s (PTV) children’s programmes “Kaliyon ki Mala” and “Sung Sung”, within a very short span of time she made it to the top of the Music Industry on both sides across the border, Pakistan and India. She has been dubbed as “Queen Of Pop” in South Asia since then.
She had her first major breakthrough when she sang “App Jaisa Koi” at the age of fifteen for a Bollywood movie ‘Qurabaani’ , which bagged her the prestigious Filmfare Award, the first ever Pakistani artist to ever receive the honour.
She, along with her brother Zoheb Hassan, went on to release their blockbuster albums Disco Deewana (1981), Boom Boom, Young Tarang (1984), Hotline (1987) and finally Camera, Camera (1992).Her English single Dreamer Deewane gave her the prestige to be the first Pakistani singer to make it to the British charts.
The singer, who succumbed to a battle with cancer, passed away on August 13, 2000, leaving the world in the state of grief and sadness.
