Severe illness of her father prevented Nargiz from participating in the first casting of the television program The Voice in 2012.[6] Pulat Mordukhaev died in April 2013.[7]

At the age of four, Nargiz first appeared on stage, at the age of 15, with the song "Remember Me" to the music of and the words of Ilya Reznik,[8] originally recorded by her along with several other songs for the film Bride from Vuadil directed by Ali Hamroyev, appeared at the 1st All-Union TV contest of young performers of the Soviet pop song "Jurmala-86", where she won the audience award.[9] She studied at the variety department in the republican circus school,[10] and successfully performed with her band.

Since April 2014 Nargiz has been cooperating with the producer and composer Maxim Fadeev. The musician wrote for her the debut solo single "Ya - ne tvoya", which was released on July 3. In the music video she co-starred with her then-husband Philip Balzano.[15]
