Music lovers remember iconic Nazia Hassan

imageKARACHI/LAHORE: The 13th death anniversary of iconic Pakistani pop singer Nazia Hassan was observed across the country on Tuesday.

The pop icon died of lung cancer at the age of 35 on August 13, 2000. Her song "Aap Jaisa Koi" from the Indian film Qurbani (1980) made her a legend and pop icon in Pakistan and all of South Asia in the 1980s, where she is admired and loved even today, years after her death.

Her debut album Disco Deewane (1981) also charted in fourteen countries worldwide and became the best-selling Asian pop record up until that time. Nazia Hassan, along with her brother Zohaib Hassan, went on to sell over 60 million records worldwide.

Nazia was the first Pakistani to win a Filmfare Award and remains the youngest winner of a Filmfare Award in the category of Best Female Playback Singer to date when she was 15. Hassan is a recipient for the Pride of Performance, Double Platinum Award and Golden Discs Awards.

In 2007, Ahmad Haseeb created a documentary A Music Fairy in a tribute to Nazia Hassan which was screened at Kara Film Festival and University of Ankara.

Nazia began singing during the late 1970s, when she appeared on several television shows on PTV as a child artist. 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.
