Bloemfontein - Afrikaans singer-songwriter Lucas Maree died late on Friday night in a Bloemfontein hospital, said music management company The Sixth Sense.

Maree has been battling prostate cancer for two years. In the last few weeks of his life he was also suffering from kidney failure.

"Lucas was a wonderful husband and a loving father to our children," his wife Ilse Maree said.

"We will miss his wonderful sense of humour and commitment to the family."

Maree leaves behind three daughters, who have been by his bedside since December.

"Lucas was the best dad anyone could ask for. We always laughed together and he had the talent of making us believe that life was magical. Even now that we are older, it is as true as it ever was. It was an honour to create music with him. Few children can say that. We will miss him incredibly."

Maree was famous for songs such as Ek sou kon doen met ‘n miljoen, Droomvrou  and Victoriabaai.

“He was an individual with immense talent and a great friend”, Coenie de Villiers, fellow musician and close friend to Maree said.
