The world lost a legend Chadwick Boseman. A man who gave hope to the black community that we can also be heroes.
So many people wrote moving tributes to him. From his friends to his colleagues and his loyal fans but one Lupita Nyongo had been silent.
She has been mourning in silence and today she broke her social media break in a very emotional tribute to the late Chadwick.
"I write these words from a place of hopelessness, to honor a man who had great hope. I am struggling to think and speak about my friend, Chadwick Boseman, in the past tense. It doesn't make sense. The news of his passing is a punch to my gut every morning. I am aware that we are all mortal, but you come across some people in life that possess an immortal energy, that seems like they have existed before, that is exactly where they are supposed to always be - here! ... that seems ageless... Chadwick was one of those people." Lupita started her long post
Lupita and Chadwick worked closely together in the making of Black Panther, a movie that will forever be spoken about.
In a series of posts, she shared the kind of man Chadwick saying that he was basically a selfless man.
"Chadwick was a man who made the most of his time, and somehow also managed to take his time. I didn't know him for long, but he had a profound effect on me in the time that I did. When we came together to make Black Panther, I remember being struck by his quiet, powerful presence. He had no airs about him, but there was a higher frequency that he seemed to operate from. You got the sense that he was fully present and also somehow fully aware of things in the distant future. As a result, I noticed that Chadwick never seemed rushed! He commanded his time with ease..."
