  • The actor is dedicating the "rest of his days" to Boseman
  • Jordan wished he spent "more time" with Boseman when the latter was still alive 

Michael B. Jordan made everyone emotional by posting a heartfelt tribute to his close friend Chadwick Boseman. The actor shared an endearing message on social media saying he would like to dedicate the “rest of his days” to his late co-star.

The 33-year-old actor took to Instagram and explained how much he misses his “Black Panther” co-star. Jordan also shared that he is “more aware” of life and how people should embrace it by spending time with their loved ones now more than ever.

The “Creed” star also said that he would miss Boseman’s honesty, generosity, and sense of humor.

“I'm more aware now than ever that time is short with people we love and admire. I’m gonna miss your honesty, your generosity, your sense of humor, and incredible gifts. I’ll miss the gift of sharing space with you in scenes. I’m dedicating the rest of my days to live the way you did. With grace, courage, and no regrets. “Is this your king!?” Yes . he. is!  Rest In Power Brother,” Jordan wrote on the photo-sharing platform.  

However, the thing that hurt Jordan the most was the fact that the “Da 5 Bloods” star still continued to work in movies and even visited hospitals to meet children who were battling cancer while he never openly talked about his own battle with the deadly disease.

“But the thing that hurts the most is that I now understand how much of a legend and hero YOU are. Through it all, you never lost sight of what you loved most. You cared about your family, your friends, your craft, your spirit. You cared about the kids, the community, our culture, and humanity. You cared about me,” the actor wrote.

Jordan wished he spent “more time” with Boseman, so he could have told him that he was like a “big brother” to him.

“You are my big brother, but I never fully got a chance to tell you, or to truly give you your flowers while you were here. I wish we had more time,” Jordan wrote.

Over the weekend, Boseman was given a special tribute at the 2020 MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) when it was announced that this year’s show was dedicated to the late actor.

“Before we get into the music tonight, we need to dedicate the time to talk about the devastating loss of Chadwick Boseman, an actor whose talent is a true inspiration to all the fans he touched and everyone he encountered. We dedicate tonight’s show to a man whose spirit touched so many. He is a true spirit, not just onscreen but in everything he did. His impact lives forever,” host Keke Palmer said during the opening segment.

Boseman died on Aug. 28 in his home in Los Angeles after a four-year battle with colon cancer. He was 43.
