Shazia Khushk, renowned folk singer, recently announced that she is quitting music to completely indulge in her religion.

“I’ve been getting many international offers, but I refused because of religious obligations. I’m grateful to my fans for loving my songs and hope that they will strongly support me in my new move. I really took my time to think about what I wanted to do at this stage in my life, I’m certain that I won’t want to join [music industry] again,” Shazia Khushk said.

Her fans, while sad, do fully support her, and wish her well.

Khushk made her singing debut in 1992 after her husband’s insisted she audition. The 49-year-old folk singer has sung over 500 songs in Urdu, Gujrati, Kashmiri, Saraiki, and Sindhi.

She was also nominated as a Goodwill Ambassador by the ex-US council General in Karachi.

It has been stated by her family friend that Khushk will continue to engage in social work.
