Zile Huma is the daughter of the late Melody Queen Madam Noor Jehan and the only of her four daughters to follow in her mother’s footsteps. Today, she is a popular Pakistani pop singer.
Zile Huma was born into a filmi and musical family in Lahore, Punjab, Pakistan. She was the youngest of the three children of famed singer/actress, Madam Noor Jehan and filmmaker, Syed Shaukat Hussain Rizvi. Her mother loved her and raised her and her brothers with much affection. She provided them with all the comforts in life. When she was a child, her parents were divorced. Her father, Syed Shaukat Hussain Rizvi demanded the family’s studio, Shahnoor Studios, in return for her custody. Her mother gladly signed the property papers to get her daughter back. Growing up in Pakistan, singing and music became her passion but during her childhood, her mother refuse to allow her to undergo training in music.
At an early age, she married jeweler, Aqeel Butt, and settled down for a married life with her husband. The marriage produced four sons, two of whom can be named. They are Mohammad Ali Butt Working at a leading Cellular Company, Ahmed Ali Butt, lead vocalist of the Pakistani rock band E.P. Muatafa Ali Butt and Hamza Ali Butt, an upcoming name in the Pakistani film industry. Now, due to raising her children, she could not pursue her passion for music. Unfortunately, she had a stormy married life and her marriage was ruined. It was the solitude that rekindled her desire and music became her companion. She divorced her husband and decided to pursue a musical career.
In the early 1990s, after having decided to make music her profession, she commenced formal education in music under Ustad Ghulam Mohammed, her mother’s Ustad. She said in an interview, Learning at that age wasn’t easy game but I had made up my mind to keep on learning as learning never ends. Today, she is a popular Pakistani pop singer and had earlier released an album paying tribute to her late mother.
