RIP Chadwick Boseman: Lupita Nyong’o Pens Heartfelt Tribute for Black Panther Co-Star

In a soul-stirring tribute to the late Chadwick Boseman, his “Black Panther” co-star Lupita Nyong’o remembered the actor as someone who possessed “ energy”. Boseman died on August 28 following a four year-long secret battle with colon cancer. He was 43. He attained global stardom as T’Challa of fictitious African country Wakanda aka superhero Black Panther in the MCU films such as “Captain America: Civil War”, “Black Panther”, “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Avengers: Endgame”. Nyong’o, one of Boseman’s colleagues who had not publicly reacted to his passing, shared a note on Instagram as an attempt to “make sense” of the actor’s demise. RIP Chadwick Boseman: Russo Brothers Share Ikorodu Bois’ Moving ‘Wakanda Forever’ Tribute For The Black Panther Star (Watch Video)

“I am struggling to think and speak about my friend, Chadwick Boseman, in the past tense. It doesn’t make sense. The news is a punch to my gut every morning,” she begins. “I am aware that we are all mortal, but you come across some people in life that possess a immortal energy, that seem like they have existed before, that are exactly where they are supposed to always be – here! … that seem ageless…. Chadwick was one of those people,” she wrote on Tuesday. The actor, who played Nakia, an undercover spy for Wakanda and T’Challa’s love interest in the 2018 blockbuster, said she was struck by Boseman’s “quiet powerful presence” when they started working on the film. RIP Chadwick Boseman: Will Smith’s Loving Tribute to Black Panther Star Will Make You Emotional (Watch Video

“Chadwick was a man who made the most of his time, and somehow also managed to take his time. 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…”

Nyong’o said Boseman, who led “Black Panther” as the first MCU film with a predominantly black cast, was capable enough to shoulder the movie that went on to break new ground both in pop culture and at award shows for celebrating black identity.

“Black Panther” was a major hit for Disney-owned Marvel Studios, grossing over USD 1.3 billion in worldwide gross and becoming the first superhero film to be nominated for the best picture at Oscars. The film took home three trophies for original score, costume design and production design.

“Chadwick’s hands were strong enough to carry the of the film and free enough to clasp mine when I needed it… I think he understood the power of words and chose to manifest power through his word. He used his mouth to build, to edify, never to break,” she added.

From doing his own stunts, drumming at his own parties to mastering martial arts, Nyong’o said Boseman “took the risk to be alive, fully alive”.

“So it seems that it was life that gave up on Chadwick long before Chadwick gave up on life.” Before “Black Panther”, Boseman made a name for himself by playing black historical figures like baseball star Jackie Robinson in “42” (2013), singer-songwriter James Brown in “Get on Up” (2014) and the first African-American Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall in “Marshall” (2017).

Nyong’o said the late actor “activated” black pride. “He cared so deeply about humanity, about Black people, about his people… By pushing through and working with such high purpose in the films he chose to commit to, Chadwick has made the infinite his home,” she said. “His power lives on and will reverberate for generations to come,” she added. Nyong’o, along with other “Black Panther” co-stars and Winston Duke, attended a private memorial for Boseman in Malibu.

Mika Singh: Get Off Social Media and Help People Amidst the COVID-19 Pandemic

Mika Singh feels people ought to stop indulging in Twitter sermonising and do some actual work if they want to pitch in with help amidst the Covid pandemic. The singer has initiated a food service (Langar Seva) under his NGO, and had kickstarted his efforts on Monday offering free meals to bus drivers, street kids, poor and the needy. “When the Farmers’ Protest took place and the farmers needed help, people indulged in Twitter-baazi, they kept tweeting that we will do this and we will do that, but nothing came out of it. There is no need to show support on Twitter, step outside and help, do the actual bit. Sameera Reddy Shares Few Tips To Tackle Post-COVID 19 Weakness (Watch Video).

“Whenever there is an issue, people just onto Twitter and start . It’s my humble request to people, do actual help and stop making bayaan baazi (sermonising) on Twitter,” said Mika. Mika has been an avid supporter of the farmers’ protest and still supports the cause, but believes that Covid is a bigger issue and everyone should start doing their bit.

He said: “I am certain that the government will take a decision. There is no one bigger than government and this matter (the farmers’ protest) should be resolved quickly. But right now, people are dying of hunger rather than . We should also worry about people who are still alive and on road. People on road need food, the unemployed need food, people don’t have drinking water, clothes to wear and place to sleep, and it’s time we take living into consideration as well.”

Asked whether the entertainment industry was facing a backlash for not doing enough for people and just making tall claims on social media platforms, Mika replied: “I love Bollywood and I respect it. See, there are people who are actually doing good work and helping others, but there is huge brigade of people who just want to wear expensive shoes and watches. To that I say, if god has blessed you with good fortune, please help someone in need as well.”
