Danai Gurira mourns Black Panther co-star Chadwick Boseman. Danai Gurira one of the main cast actors of the popular Black Panther who worked with Chadwick twice on Black Panther and Avengers End-Game has poured her heart-out to the late Wakanda King whom passed away on Saturday.

United States-based Zimbabwean actress and Black Panther star, Danai Gurira has mourned her colleague the late Chadwick Boseman who recently succumbed to cancer. At the end of her eulogy, Gurira said, “Lala Ngoxolo” which means rest in peace or sleep in peace in Xhosa, one of the eleven official languages spoken in South Africa. Xhosa is also Wakanda’s official language. Below is Gurura’s eulogy.

How do you honor a king? Reeling from the loss of my colleague, my friend, my brother. Struggling for words. Nothing feels adequate. I always marveled at how special Chadwick was. Such a pure hearted, profoundly generous, regal, fun guy. My entire job as Okoye was to respect and protect a king. Honor his leadership. Chadwick made that job profoundly easy.

He was the epitome of kindness, elegance, diligence and grace. On many an occasion I would think how thankful I was that he was the leading man I was working closely with. A true class act. And so perfectly equipped to take on the responsibility of leading the franchise that changed everything for Black representation.Danai Gurira

He made everyone feel loved, heard and seen. He played great, iconic roles because he possessed inside of himself that connection to greatness to be able to so richly bring them to life. He had a heroic spirit, and marched to the beat of his own drum; hence his excellence as an artist and the incredible courage and determination as he faced life’s challenges; while still guiding us all.

He was zen and sweet and funny (with the very best laugh), attentive, and truly, truly, good. I can’t even wrap my mind around this loss. A loss resonating in my own heart as well as around the globe. The children he inspired, my heart aches for them, to lose their hero just as they finally found him. I am so thankful to have taken the Black Panther journey with him. To have known him, spent time in his light and leadership and to call him forever a friend.
Lala Ngoxolo Kumkani.
