The love between Turkey and Pakistan is unlike the love of any other country. My maternal ancestors are from İzmir, Turkey and I have had an affinity for the country since my childhood. As a child, I would represented Pakistan in the International Children's Festival in Turkey and in 2005 I returned to the great country to once again represent Pakistan at the iconic Atatürk Cultural Center and Opera House. The highlight of that trip was to sing the hauntingly beautiful “Sen Ağlama" (a Turkish song by living legend Sezen Aksu) to a standing ovation, the love I felt from the country of Turkey was unmatched. I remember telling the audience that as Turkey stood beside Pakistan in good and bad times, I wanted to convey the love of Pakistani people for the Turks. Now in 2020, a new milestone in the relationship between Pakistan and Turkey was cemented by the mammoth success of Ertuğrul in Pakistan and we thought of no better time to pay a public tribute to the people of Turkey by officially releasing my original performance of “Sen Ağlama.” The friendship between the two countries will continue to shine through culture, art and love. We hope you enjoy this touching tribute. Concept and editing by @abdullahharisfilms Clips from @trtertugrulptv @dirilisdizisi Tribute to #SezenAksu
Hadiqa Kiani wrote that my love for Pakistan and Turkey is very different from the love of any other country because my ancestors are from Izmir, Turkey. That is why I have been associated with Turkey since my childhood and as a child I have always represented Pakistan in the International Children’s Festival held in Turkey.
“When I returned to Turkey in 2005, I once again represented Pakistan at the Ataturk Cultural Center and Opera House, and the highlight was that I sang a famous Turkish song Sen Aglama and through my singing I expressed the love of the people of Pakistan to the people of that country who stand by Pakistan in every good and bad time,” she wrote.
She wrote: “Now after the success of the Turkish series ‘Ertugrul Ghazi’ in Pakistan in 2020, I intend to express my love for Turkey once again and in this regard I have sung ‘Ertugrul Ghazi’ title song in Turkish.”
“I have paid tribute to the people of Turkey through my singing so that the friendship between Pakistan and Turkey continues to grow through culture, art and love,” Kiani wrote. “I hope you like this song in my voice,” the singer wrote. This song of Hadiqa Kiani is very much liked by Pakistanis as well as Turks.
