Cape Town - Irene van Wyk, one of South Africa’s most popular gospel singers, died on Tuesday afternoon as the result of an accident.

This was confirmed to Nuus24 by Monica Grobelaar, of Music Profile, Irene's management company.

"It is true. Irene died in an accident," she said.

The singer's body was identified on Tuesday by her ex-husband and manager, Louis van Wyk.

"We don't know very much. More information will be provided at a later stage," said Grobelaar.

Since Irene recorded her debut album in 1986, she has made great strides in the South African music industry. She released many successful albums, performed on stage and appeared on the covers of several magazines.

Her albums include Lyne van jou lyf, In U spore, and Vrou.

She received a Vonk award for the best gospel album of the year in 2008. She was also one of the scandalmongers of the TV series Glitterati.
