Nazia Hassan has a very special place in our hearts, even though most of us might have been very young when she was around, but her songs still remain treasured with us.

There will never be another Nazia Hassan:
آپ جیسا کوئی میری زندگی میں آئے،
The greatest ever.
Nobody can be her not now not ever.
Every girl tries to be her or better than her. They can’t even be her toenails.
The one and only Nazia Hassan.#HappyBirthdayNaziaHassan@zoheb_hassan pic.twitter.com/qybLWNM7xa
