South African singer-songwriter Theuns Jordaan died on Wednesday following a cancer diagnosis in September 2020.

The 50-year-old was known for his raspy voice and hit like Soos Bloed and Sal Jy Bly. Much to his fan's delight, he would also regularly perform an acoustic version of Gert Vlok Nel's Beautiful In Beaufort-Wes at concerts. 

The Sama award-winning musician, who released his first album in 2000, also received acclaim for his Koos du Plessis covers and his duet with Juanita, Bring Jou Hart.  

Netwerk24 reported that following his death, Theun's music catalogue had gained popularity on music streaming sites, including Apple Music and Deezer.

According to reports, on Spotify, an estimated 85 177 users stream Theun's music per month.
