Award-winning actress, Lupita Nyong’o, has taken to social media to celebrate and pay tribute to her late colleague, Chadwick Boseman, on his 46th posthumous birthday.
Nyong’o in a video posted on her Instagram handle on Wednesday, 30th November, 2022, said the legacy of the late actor continues and urged everyone who can to extend their hands to the Chadwick Boseman Foundation.
“The legacy continues. Join me in honoring Chadwick and his everlasting artistry on his birthday today, and if you can, give to the Chadwick Boseman Foundation for the Arts to support the intellectual, spiritual, and artistic growth of Black storytellers”.
Chadwick Boseman, famous for playing the role of Black Panther in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Wakanda forever, died in 2020 after battling stage 4 colon cancer.
The News of his death came as a surprise to many and elicited global shock, as the actor never disclosed his health status, but rather kept working on movies in the midst of chemotherapy and operations.
Four years after the release of the first movie, Wakanda forever 2 hit the big screens in November 2022, without its superhero ‘T’Challa’.
