It seems like Pakistani singer Hadiqa Kiani is a fan of the Turkish epic series Ertugrul. The acclaimed singer decided to pay a heartfelt tribute to the popular historical series with a song (a Turkish song at that) and it is the best thing you will find on the internet today.
Hadiqa Kiani took to her social media account on Twitter to share a re-mastered version of a Turkish song called “Sen Ağlama”. Hadiqa had sung this song back in 2005 at an Opera House!
In 2005, I had the honor of singing the Turkish song #SenAğlama at the AKM Opera House. Today, I have remastered that song as a tribute to @TRTErtugrulPTV series, #SezenAksu & to the people of Turkey. May our love and bond be forever strong. 🇹🇷🇵🇰❤️ Stream: https://t.co/OT2vwrsTty

This is the first time a Pakistani singer has sung in the Turkish language. The singer went onto share that she hopes that the bond between Pakistan and Turkey remains strong. It should also be noted that Hadiqa Kiani’s maternal ancestors are from Izmir, Turkey and the singer has had an affinity for Turkey since childhood.
“As a child prodigy, Kiani represented Pakistan in the International Children’s Festival in Turkey and as an adult in 2005 she returned to the great country to once again represent Pakistan at the iconic Atatürk Cultural Center and Opera House. The biggest surprise for the audience was said to be when Kiani sang “Sen Ağlama” (Turkish song of Living Legend Sezen Aksu) to a standing ovation from the audience. She told the audience that as Turkey stood beside Pakistan in good and bad times, she wanted to convey the love of Pakistani people for the Turks.”
The iconic Pakistani singer had also shared earlier that she is working on something special. We’ll have to wait and see what it is. Share your thoughts on Hadiqa’s Turkish song in the comments below.
