Kevin and Derrick Boseman have opened up about their celebrity brother’s passing and revealed that the Black Panther star was ready to go during the final days of his life.
Chadwick Boseman, 43, has passed away from stage four colon cancer in August, four years after he was diagnosed with the disease. Despite his long battle with cancer, the popular actor remained very active and kept his condition private.
Now, Chadwick’s brothers, 54-year-old Derrick Boseman and 48-year-old Kevin Boseman, have opened up about the actor’s words during his final days.
As the brothers told the New York Times, Chadwick was ready for his battle with cancer to finally come to an end.
“Man, I’m in the fourth quarter, and I need you to get me out of the game,” the 43-year-old allegedly told his Tennessee-based pastor brother Derrick.
As Derrick explained, he had initially asked his brother what he meant by that before realizing that Chadwick was ready to die.
“When he told me that, I changed my prayer from, ‘God heal him, God save him’, to ‘God, let your will be done’,” the pastor said. “And the next day he passed away.”
As Kevin, who is an actor, dancer, and writer, suggested, he has been trying to remember the Chad he knew as his little brother.
“I have been trying to remember Chad and not Chadwick. And there’s just been a lot of Chadwick in the air,” the 48-year-old said. “… I always endeavored to just treat him like my brother.”
May he rest in peace.
