AN ICONIC South African singer has passed away at 50 years old after battling leukemia.
Theuns Jordaan, who was being the tracks Beautiful in Beaufort-Wes and Soos Bloed, died on Wednesday morning.
His friend, Armand Hofmeyr, delivered the heartbreaking news in a social media post this morning.
“Theuns my old friend, I learned a lot from you. Most of my writing work is based on what you taught me," they wrote.
"I would’ve liked to learn a lot from you. REST IN PEACE… This is heart breaking."
Following the tragic news, the artist's fans flooded to social media to share their condolences.
"So sad. Sincere condolences to his family, friends and South Africans. A true legend. Rest in peace Theuns," one social media user wrote.
Another said: "Oh no. Deepest condolences to your family and friends. Your music will live on forever. RIP Theuns."
The star was best known for his hit singles, alongside albums Tribute to the poets and Roeper.
However, his career was cut short when he was diagnosed with leukemia in September 2020.
Blood tests said that he had acute myeloid leukemia – which is a type of cancer that starts in the blood-forming cells of the bone marrow.
Last year, the star said that the prognosis was "very good" and that he was already in remission.
However, he added that he would have to undergo a stem cell transplant in February of this year.
"Before the diagnosis, I was constantly tired for about two to three weeks," he said at the time.
