Nazia had sprung to popularity through Pakistan Television’s (PTV) programme Sung Sung and shot to unexpected fame to become one of Pakistan’s most famous celebrities in the 70s and 80s — a pride for the country.

Her crooning, melodious voice gave us tremendous pop hits such as Dil Ki Lagi, Ajnabi, Zara Chehra To, Dum Dum Dee Dee, Boom Boom and Dosti. “Aap Jaisa Koi” — sung at the age of 13 for Indian movie Qurbaani — made her a beloved icon both at home and in South Asia.

She bagged a Filmfare Award, becoming the first Pakistani to win the prestigious accolade, and, along with her brother Zohaib, went on to sell over 60 million records worldwide. The duo released Disco Deewane in 1981. Not only was she beautiful but academically sound as well.

The educated artist held the degree of Business Administration and Economics from Richmond American University in London. She was a lawyer by education and this degree was an added plus.
