The entire world was shocked by the tragic death of Chadwick Boseman. As known, the 43-year-old, the ‘Black Panther’ actor passed away after a four-year battle with colon cancer, on August 28. Once the news of his passing spread, Boseman’s fans and famous friends mourned his death via social media posts.

One of them, the former President Barack Obama uploaded a photo of himself standing of Boseman, in White House and captioned it as follows:

“Chadwick came to the White House to work with kids when he was playing Jackie Robinson. You could tell right away that he was blessed. To be young, gifted, and Black; to use that power to give them heroes to look up to; to do it all while in pain – what use of his years.”

Similarly, the first African-American first lady, wife of Barack Obama, Michelle Obama released the following message:

“I’ll always remember watching Chadwick in 42. Barack and I were alone in the White House, on a weekend night with the girls away. I was so profoundly moved by the rawness and emotion in the barrier-breaking story. And not long after, when he came to meet with young people in the State Dining Room, I saw that Chadwick’s brilliance on screen was matched by warmth and sincerity in person.”

Oprah Winfrey, who was ranked the greatest black philanthropist in American history, expressed how much pain she was in and wrote through social media:

What a gentle gifted SOUL. Showing us all that Greatness in between surgeries and chemo. The courage, the strength, the power it takes to do that. This is what dignity looks like.”

The rapper Lil Wayne was one of those, leading tribute to Boseman. He wrote this touching message:

“I’d like to extend my condolences to the family of Chadwick Boseman. You’ll always be our black superhero and forever appreciated and respected by myself, my family and all of your fans. Rest in power brother! 🙏🏾#WakandaForever”

“Man, you shined so bright and shared your light with everyone all while quietly battling… It’s unfathomable. Says a lot about the warm strength and spirit that seemed to emanate off of you man. It hurts to imagine a lifetime of your contributions but the impact you’ve left in this short time will echo on and on forever. Thank you for your timeless spirit and for being a real life hero for all of us, in your art and your humanity. Sending so much love and our deepest condolences to your family. Rest in Power king.”

As for John Legend took to Twitter and addressed to his respectful attitude to his roots & ancestors. He wrote:
