While this may be the first time you are hearing the name Syeda Hadiya Hashmi, she is no newcomer to the Pakistani singing scene.

Hadiya has been training to be a professional singer since the age of seven under Zia-ul-Haq from Surtaal Academy. Her first rise to fame was her performance with Soch the Band on NESCAFE Basement and she hasn’t lived the fame down since then. She has not stayed in the limelight, but the young star did start her own YouTube channel a few weeks back which is definitely worth checking out.
