Rasta captioned the post:
"RIP to the first black marvel superhero. We respect your work. @chadwickboseman @MarvelStudios"

Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported veteran actor John Kani expressed sadness in not being able to attend the funeral of the late legendary actor Chadwick Boseman. While it is a heavy time, Kani would have liked to have been able to pay his respects in person.
Many influential lives have been lost as of late and the people of Mzansi have been in mourning for some time. Life is so short and these lost lives have reminded us all to make the most of every moment.
Kani wanted to attend Chadwick’s funeral with actress Connie Chiume in New York, but that border lockdowns due to the coronavirus have stopped them from doing so.
Black Panther actor Chadwick's passing has seen tributes pour in from all over the world. The Marvel movie, which grossed over a billion dollars, saw South African actors starring alongside the late actor. Some of his Mzansi peers took to social media to pay their tributes to the legendary Boseman.
