Zoheb Hassan, a Pakistani music icon, is all praises for Meesha Shafi for singing a cover song of his sister Nazia Hassan.
Shafi had fans of vintage Pakistani music elated after she sang Boom Boom in a tribute to Nazia on the latest episode of the Velo Sound Nation.
The song was originally written and sung by Nazia for the 1982 Bollywood movie Star. It became an instant hit across South Asia.[iframe class="embed-responsive-item" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/3Lma6VD8BjM" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen="" width="100%" height="437" frameborder="0"]
