Ghazala was born on 1 January 1988 in Swat Valley of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in
Pakistan. In late 2007, the Pakistani Taliban were strengthening their grip
in Swat so the young Ghazala and her family fled to the city of Peshawar.
They settled in Peshawar and Ghazala began her singing career, subsequently
recorded the songs "Baran dy baran dy" and "Lag rasha kana". Later in her
career, she sang more melodious songs and became known amongst the Pashtun
people of Pakistan, Afghanistan and those living abroad.
She began appearing in stage-shows in Dubai and Kabul, Afghanistan, where
she earned $12,000 to $15,000 per night for singing at wedding parties.
According to Radio Kabul director Abdul Ghani Mudaqiq, "She was paid more
than any other Pashtun artist—male or female—in Kabul... She was our most
requested and popular Pashto singer." Her songs "Za lewaney da mena", "Za da
cha khqula ta fikar wari yem", and "Mena ba kawo Janana mena ba kawo" had a
positive critical reception. She was nominated for a Filmfare Award in 2010
and received a Khyber Award in 2011.
On 7 February 2010, Ghazala married Jehangir Khan, a property dealer in
Peshawar, but of late was living with her father due to differences with her
husband. She learned that her husband had another wife before her and that
divulgation eventually led to her separation from Javed. In November 2010,
she separated from her husband and moved to her parents' home. On 12 October
2011, Ghazala filed a petition in the civil court of Asghar in Swat for
divorce from Jehangir. The court decided in her favor on 4 December 2011.
Ghazala, along with her father, was shot dead in a drive-by shooting by
gunmen on a motorcycle. On 16-December-2013 Swat District and Sessions Court
found her former husband, Jahangir Khan guilty of killing her and her father
and awarded him two death sentences along with Rs70 million in fines.
