Zohaib ? Do I need to introduce him? I am sure not. His name is enough to depict the aura of his musical compositions to the breed of 90’s.
Just a small reminder for the new lot. The first pop stars of Pakistan, Zohaib Hassan and his sister Nazia Hassan, made tremendous contributions in the development of music in Pakistan. The mesmerizing vocals of the Hassan siblings entertained us through the 90s.

While Nazia left the worldly abode too soon ,Zohaib continued entertaining us with his melodious and touching vocals.
The singer had taken a break for some time to concentrate on the family business in UK after his sister’s death, he just launched an album called Signature.
Zohaib has been accoladed with 12 Gold, four Platinum, and two Double Platinum Discs.
