Boseman, whose career's honour was bringing the character, King T'Challa, to life in Black Panther, died at his home in the Los Angeles area with his wife and family by his side.
Chadwick, according to the official announcement, was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2016 which was then at stage III. The disease sadly progressed to its stage IV and the famous actor visibly lost weight as photos in earlier reports gathered had shown.
The news of his battle with cancer was only made known following his death. This has earned Okorie backlash for questioning why people didn't celebrate him while he was sick.
