Derrick, a pastor, said Chadwick told him the day before he died that he was ready to go. Chadwick told his brother, “Man, I’m in the fourth quarter, and I need you to get me out of the game.”

‘When he told me that, I changed my prayer from, ‘God heal him, God save him,’ to ‘God, let your will be done, And the next day he passed away'” Pastor Boseman said.

While the actor went by his full name of Chadwick Boseman, friends and others closest to him knew him simply as Chad.

“I have been trying to remember Chad and not Chadwick. And there’s just been a lot of Chadwick in the air”. Kevin Boseman said.

Kevin, a successful actor, director and writer in his own right, added that when someone becomes a celebrity, “You have to start sharing that person with the world; I always endeavoured to just treat him like my brother.”


Derrick added that Chad was always artistically gifted, adding he could “sit and draw anyone” from a very young age.
