Arooj Aftab becomes first Pakistani woman to win
Arooj won the award for her song 'Mohabbat' in the Best Global Performance category.
Brooklyn-based Pakistani singer Arooj Aftab has bagged her first-ever
Grammy on Sunday. This win must be special for Pakistan as Arooj is the
first Pakistani woman to receive the prestigious trophy. Arooj won the
award for her song 'Mohabbat' in the Best Global Performance category.
"@Arooj_Aftab's "Mohabbat" wins Best Global Music Performance at the
2022 #GRAMMYs. Aftab is the first Pakistani woman to win a GRAMMY
and is also nominated for Best New Artist," a tweet read on the official
Twitter account of Grammys. Aftab moved to the US in 2005 to study
music at the Berklee College of Music. She released her first album 'Bird
Under Water' in 2014. In fact, her track 'Mohabbat' also made its way to
former US President Barack Obama's annual summer playlist.
