The Oscar award winner Lupita Nyong’o has for the first time expressed her deepness over the demise of Chadwick Boseman.  Boseman, popularly known as Black Panther, succumbed to colon cancer on August 28, 2020.

Lupita Nyong’o shared her picture with Boseman on Instagram on Tuesday, captioned with a somber heartfelt tribute.

“I write these words from a place of hopelessness, to honour 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,” she wrote.

“I am aware that we are all mortal, but you come across some people in life that possess an 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.”

The Oscar award winner said she did not know Boseman for a long time but he greatly influenced her life. She remembered playing Nakia in the interest of Boseman’s T’ Challa

Lupita’s tribute showcased how Chadwick was a man who made the most of his time and somehow also managed to take his time, saying he was never a man of no rush operating from a higher frequency. She added that Boseman got the sense, was fully present, and also somehow very aware of things in the distant future. Lupita further added that he showed up to every rehearsal and training and shoot day with his game face on.

 Lupita also praised Boseman’s generosity spirit. He gave him absorbent agile attributes. She also said that Black Panther created an ego-free environment leading by sheer example, positively praising how strong and large Boseman’s hands were.  He would descend on her shoulders; squeeze and that sent a relief off her tensions.

‘Chadwick’s hands were strong enough to carry the weight of the film and free enough to clasp mine when I needed it,’ she said  

Lupita penned her end to her tribute by offering a deemed condolences to the late Chadwick’s wife; Samone, family, and friends.

“Perhaps with time… I’m going to take my time… and in his honor, I promise not to waste my time. I hope you will do the same.”

Black Panther’s demise has taken the world with a storm. He will surely be missed.
