Watch: Robot Boii’s resemblance to Chadwick Boseman at the Wakanda Forever Preview in Rosebank breaks the internet.
The sequel to the most anticipated superhero movie, Black Panther (Wakanda Forever), is finally here, and it has been a long wait.
The production was hit hard by the death of its leading man, Chadwick Boseman. Boseman shook the entire world when he passed on in 2020 after suffering from colon cancer.
His passing caused anxiety across the board. Questions in the movie industry about who would replace him in the upcoming sequel started floating around.
Big names like John David Washington, the legendary Denzel Washington’s son, were thrown around for consideration.
Ultimately, it was decided that a replacement was out of the question and that King T’chala would be retired from the movie in honour of Chadwick’s memory.
The sequel to Black Panther has been called the most emotional and beautiful event by those who have seen it.
South Africa rolled out the black carpet on Wednesday night in Rosebank at the Zone for the Mzansi experience, and it was a night to remember.
Celebrities brought their A game, dressing up like African Kings and Queens to show the world how it’s done.
Media personality Criselda Kananda channelled Mama Winnie Madikizela Mandela, and she looked stunning; Pearl Thusi, Zenande Mfenyane, Rami Chuene and many more showed up dressed to kill.
Somizi hosted the Black Carpet.
Connie Chiume was also in attendance, fresh from the US premiere, dressed in an Imprint ZA gown.
The person who attracted the most attention after Mme Connie is Robot Boii. Mzwakhe Mbuli Jnr channelled the King himself, Chadwick Boseman.
The singer put on a black Nao Serati suit resembling King T’chala’s outfit in one of his scenes in the first Black Panther movie. He finished the look with the Wakanda-inspired neckpiece.
Robot Boii’s resemblance to Chadwick Boseman was the talk of the town and set the comment section on fire.
Some of his fans got confused and thought he had been picked to replace Chadwick as T’chala in the movie.
” They should have picked you to play the King.”
Some said in the timeline.
Somizi had an opportunity to interview the musician. I asked him what inspired his look. Mbuli said he was paying homage to the fallen King, Chadwick Boseman.
“You are so thoughtful,” said Somizi
The resemblance is uncanny, and it is so thoughtful.
