90’s Awesome Pakistani Pop Stars We Seriously Want Back
You know how sometimes one track is so good, you just want to hut that replay button again and again. That’d be 90’s for us! Right 90’s gave us the golden period of Pakistani-pop that still gives us the goosebumps. While some singers have advanced to achieve greater musical heights today, some have vanished never to be heard again.
Whichever way, we truly enjoyed their music & thought we might not have them in our playlist today, we do a little cheat code once in a while! Pakistani Pop Forever !
Nazia Hassan was a Pakistani Pop singer, Her song “Aap Jaisa Koi”, from the Indian Film “Qurbani” mader her famous in Pakistan and all of South Asia in 1980’s to 90’s.
His most popular hit “Disco Dewanay” cemented his place in the Pakistani pop scene of the glorious 80’s and 90’s.
Dil Dil Pakistan…was an instant hit. It was a lethal combo of Junaid Jamshed’s vocals and Shoaib Mansoor’s music and awesome video. It was a total package and we gave it a place in our hearts instantly.
The very likeable Junoon came with an even more likeable pop tart with “Hai Jazba Junoon”. The song was a super hit & they were catapulted instantly into Jazz-pop stardom.
This was Haroon & Fakhir’s group and their first single was awesome “Jadoo Ka Chiragh”. We love this song for the trio: Haroon and Fakhir’s voice, Soulful music and soft vocals brought them immense popularity.

What’s a pop scene without some much needed Bhangra relief ! Who can forget his lively, foot tapping numbers? Give it up for the Bhangra legend.
A pop scene staple, a wacky combination of crazy lyrics & even crazier singing.
A soft husky voice of Najam can never be forgotten. Ever.
Roy sums up talent & good genes. A singer for all ages, we absolutely miss his lovely numbers & wish he cuts out an album soon.
A young man with sparkling eyes possessing enthusiasm and lust for his passion (Music), is amongst those who have touched the pinnacle with their very first endeavor.
He gave a new trend to Ghazals with his “Awargi” (originally sung by Munni Begum) when he was studying in Matric class. It wassuch a big hit that every person of the nation was found singing this Ghazal in his tune.
Later, he experienced some hip-hop, jazzy and romantic numbersand was again rewarded with appreciations and acknowledgements around the world. He is very much optimistic about the future of Music with the opening of new channels where new talent is being given the extensive chance of exposure.
