Google is honouring Nazia Hassan, Pakistan’s pop icon, who inspired a huge audience with her pioneering work in music world and ruled a decade of 80s along with her brother Zohaib Hassan .
The fans of legendary pop diva took to social media, paying tributes to the undisputed queen of pop music on her 53rd birthday being celebrated today across the world. Google also remembered her with a special doodle to pay homage her.
In a statement Google wrote, “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 favourite songs Disco Deewane and Boom Boom alongside her brother Zohaib.”
Nazia Hassan was a Pakistani pop singer, lawyer and social activist. She graduated from well reputed Richmond, The American International University and University of London.
In the past Google had also paid tribute to Nusrat Fateh Ali khan, Abdul Sattar Edhi, Noor Jehan and many others.
