Fans remembered an iconic pop singer Nazia Hassan, the girl who introduced pop singing and raised the status of Pakistani singing all over the world. Fame came early in her life and she grew in stature as a singer with her brother Zoheb by her side. Together, they became the darlings of the young generation — girls would emulate her hairstyle and dressing just as boys would Zoheb’s. Her professional career started at the age of fifteen when she provided the lead vocals for the song “Aap Jaisa Koi” from the 1980 film Qurbani and in 1981 won Filmfare award for it. In 1981, Nazia became the first playback singer to release an album after the release of her first album, Disco Deewane. Nazia’s second album Star/Boom Boom was released in 1982. The soundtrack of the album was used in the movie Star. Nazia’s third album, Young Tarang was released in 1984.
