The sensational young singer sang such melodies which are still popular as many remixes have been introduced carrying songs and voice of late Nazia Hassan that include "Disco Deewane" and "Boom Boom".

Her hits Disco deewaney, Aankhein milaney waley, Dosti, Dil ki lagi, Sun maire mehboob sun, takes one to her eternal musical journey bringing back memories that lie somewhat suppressed in the head.
Being the first Pakistani and the youngest recipient of Filmfare Award, Nazia’s short journey is marked with many achievements. She was a foreign qualified and a lawyer who also had the opportunity to work for United Nations Security Council. She was awarded with Pakistan's highest civilian Pride of Performance award.
