- The memorial for Hollywood star, Chadwick Boseman, recently took place on September 5

- This comes barely two weeks after the iconic movie star died of colon cancer after a four-year battle
Following the tragic passing of Black Panther star, Chadwick Boseman, his family and friends held a private memorial on Saturday, September 5.
The memorial took place in Malibu, California, where his close relatives and friends gathered to remember the brave actor’s life and say their final goodbyes.
In photos published by The Sun, Lupita Nyong’o, Michael B Jordan, and Winston Duke attended an outdoor memorial for their Black Panther co-star, along with Boseman’s wife, Taylor Simone Ledward.
Boseman died in late August following a private four-year battle with colon cancer. He was 43 years old. His rep said in a statement:
“A true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all and brought you many of the films you have come to love so much.”
Boseman left the world shell-shocked when he passed away from colon cancer recently. The Black Panther star had not disclosed his ailing health to the public. Reports are now suggesting that the 43-year-old was determined to recover and complete the filming of the sequel to Black Panther.
The publication reports that even one week before his death, the Wakandan prince was still feeling optimistic. It has been a couple of days since the news of Boseman broke on social media yet fans of the Black Panther star are still paying tribute to him.
Just recently, a lady identified as Jane Richard on Twitter joined millions of fans who came out to pay their respects to the deceased actor.
However, Richard left members of the internet community completely stunned with the work of art which was dedicated to Boseman.
The lady, who seems to be a make-up artist, transformed her face into that of the late Black Panther actor.
