Pakistan’s ‘pop queen’ Nazia Hassan passed away 17 years ago today due to lung cancer.
The iconic singer was born in Karachi on April 3, 1965 and passed away on August 13, 2000.
Her debut song Aap Jaisa Koi in 1980 shot her to fame but for Nazia, it was just the beginning of a career that would leave an impression in the hearts of an entire generation and more.
Along with her brother, Zohaib Hassan, Nazia released her album Disco Deewane in 1981.
Her songs ‘Dosti’, ‘Disco Deewane’, ‘Aankhen Milane Wale’, ‘Boom Boom’ and 'Dil ki Lagi' are still considered timeless classics.
