After the release of their first album, Disco Deewane, Nazia and Zoheb became the South-Asian sub-continent's first pop icons.[citation needed] Several successful albums established the duo's status as pioneers of pop music in the region. They sold over 85 million records worldwide and topped the charts in several countries, including South Africa, Guatemala, Columbia, Venezuela, etc.

Zoheb is a singer, songwriter and producer. His ballad "Chehra" is considered a core romantic anthem to this day. He has received 12 gold, 4 platinum and 2 double platinum discs in his music career.
