The figure is sturdy and shatterproof just like the soul of the deceased actor who fought something as fatal as cancer with a smile on his face.

However, it turns out that the addition of this statue was pre-planned and wasn’t made to honour the demise of a man being mourned by the entire populace.

“As with the rest of the world, we were greatly saddened to learn of the passing of actor Chadwick Boseman. The Black Panther monument arrived this morning as part of a previously-planned narrative for the new Chapter 2 Season 4 season.”

Rep of Fortnite

Majority of the fans were onslaught by uncontrollable tears and paid homage to Boseman by making their way to the statue.

Thank you for everything. Wakanda Forever!
