Nazia Hassan, who opened her eyes in Karachi on April 3, 1965, was an example of beauty, talent, and fame. She was overwhelmed at an early age by an unparalleled talent.
Nazia Hassan started her artistic career at the age of 15 by singing in the Pakistani television program “Sang Sang Chalein.” Nazia Hassan, who received her music training from London, started showcasing her artistic talents early but gained international fame with the song “Aap Jaisa Koi Mere Zindagi Aaye” from the Indian film “Qurbani.” The song made Nazia Hassan a superstar overnight and won her a Filmfare Award. Nazia was the first Pakistani to receive the Filmfare Award.
Nazia and her brother Zohaib Hassan founded pop singing in Pakistan and raised the bar of success with their debut album “Discodewane.” The first album was followed by Nazia’s 4 more albums, including “Boom Boom,” “Young Wave,” “Hotline,” and “Camera Camera.” Again, all the al-Mubznaziyah were brought to the forefront. Nazia’s songs also topped the music charts in the United States, Britain, and Russia.
Nazia Hassan, who studied law and was also a cultural ambassador to the United Nations, shared her happiness. Her life was bitter. In 1997, Nazia married industrialist Mirza Ishtiaq Baig, who failed, and in August 2000, the two parted ways. A failed marriage and lung cancer infected Nazia, and she died at a London hospital on August 13, just days after her divorce at the age of 36, but is still alive in the hearts of fans.
In recognition of Nazia’s services, the Pakistani government awarded her the highest posthumous civil award, the Pride of Performance.
