The name Nazia Hassan isn’t unknown to anyone who belongs to Pakistan; people loved and swayed at her every song. Hassan did not only possess beauty, but was also extremely talented.
On what would’ve been the singer’s 53rd birthday, Google Doodle gave tribute to Nazia Hassan and captioned it, “Our Doodle today imagines her performing with her famous flowing hair and dupatta (traditional Pakistani scarf), and the disco balls of the 80s glinting behind her.”
In the biography, Google also wrote a description of her popularity in the country.
“When young Pakistani girls in the 1980s closed their eyes and clutched a pretend mic in their hands, swaying and singing, a major inspiration was Nazia Hassan. Hassan, sometimes referred to as the “Princess of Pop”, was a sensation the likes of which hadn’t been seen in the region in years. Young and graceful, with long flowing hair, she charmed the country by belting out favorite songs “Disco Deewane” and “Boom Boom” alongside her brother Zohaib.”
Nazia Hassan passed away on Aug 13, 2000 due to lung cancer when she was only 35.
