"I’ve been trying to find the words, but nothing comes close to how I feel. I’ve been reflecting on every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug… everything. I wish we had more time."
Michael expressed that one of the last times they had a conversation, Chadwick said they were forever linked.
"Now the truth of that means more to me than ever. Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with 'All My Children' when I was 16 years old ,you paved the way for me. You showed me how to be better, honour purpose, and create legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not… I’ve been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness."

Dr John Kani, who played the role of Chadwick's father King T’Chaka in the Black Panther movie, took to social media to pay his respects. He described Chadwick as an "incredible young man".
"Meeting Chadwick, he immediately walked over and said hello baba. He said I worked in Cape Town a couple of years ago and they gave me a Xhosa name Mxolisi and thus been because my oldest son is Mxolisi, we began a father-son relationship.
"People say there was an uncanny resemblance between me and him. I got a call very early about 2am this morning, Chadwick just passed away and you think, why am I getting this news, he was an incredible young man."

"No!!! I can’t believe this! Such a humble, talented soul. Death be not proud! I am in disbelief."
