The brother’s of Hollywood star Chadwick Boseman are opening up on the Black Panther’s last days before he passed away from Colon cancer in August. In an interview with the New York Times, Derrick Boseman, Chadwick’s eldest brother, recalled their last conversation together.
“Man, I’m in the fourth quarter, and I need you to get me out of the game,” Derrick told the Times he asked Chadwick what he meant, “but then realized that he was tired. He was ready to go.” “When he told me that, I changed my prayer from, ‘God heal him, God save him,’ to ‘God, let your will be done, “And the next day he passed away.”
Boseman also remembered details from their childhood in the small town of Anderson, S.C., and recalled how Chadwick Boseman’s talents shined from a young age. “Chad was gifted,” he said, noting his brother’s artistic abilities. “He’s probably the most gifted person I’ve ever met.”
Chadwick Boseman’s other brother, Kevin Boseman, also spoke to the outlet about the Chadwick he knew versus the world-renowned Marvel star.
“I have been trying to remember Chad and not Chadwick,” “And there’s just been a lot of Chadwick in the air.” The Lion King dancer, who’s also an actor and writer, said when someone becomes a celebrity, “You have to start sharing that person with the world; I always endeavored to just treat him like my brother.”
