The actor’s family held a private memorial service in Los Angeles. To honour Chadwick Boseman, Michael B Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o and more were present to pay their respects.
One week after The Black Panther star passed away, his loved ones said goodbye in a private venue in Malibu. His family, friends, and co-stars attended the ceremony, including his wife Taylor Simone Ledward, Michael B Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, and others.
Press photographs have shown a floral arrangement next to a framed photo of Boseman, and music from a hang drum was also part of the service.
Boseman passed away at 43 years old in August following a four-year battle with colon cancer which he decided to keep away from the public eye. His management team said: “A true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all, and brought you many of the films you have come to love so much,” and then added: “From ‘Marshall’ to ‘Da 5 Bloods,’ August Wilson’s ‘Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,’ and several more, all were filmed during and between countless surgeries and chemotherapy.”
The actor’s death was confirmed on a statement in social media: “Chadwick was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer in 2016, and battled with it these last four years as it progressed to stage IV. A true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all, and brought you many of the films you have come to love so much.”
