I want to share something that Nelson Mandela said to me. . He said, “With the type of fame that you have attained it is important when you encounter your fans that you — Reach Your Hand Out and let them Feel Your Flesh. You have to prove to them that you are REAL — because people can not aspire to anything they do not believe is Real.” . So I say to you, Congratulations! Enjoy this Transcendent Moment. Go into the streets… Touch them… Let them know that you are real! . @chadwickboseman, @michaelbjordan @lupitanyongo @letitiawright @danaigurira @danielkaluuya @im.angelabassett @andyserkis @winstoncduke @sterlingkbrown @rmorrison @therealstanlee @ludwiggoransson @iamruthecarter #blackpanther . With Pure Delight WILL :-)

Will Smith joins in on giving the latest Marvel Studios movie “Black Panther” love and praise.

In a short clip he uploaded on Instagram, the veteran actor gave a shout-out to the movie’s cast and said he was “damn near brought to tears” when he watched “Black Panther.”

He added, “You guys [cast and director] have challenged and potentially even shattered a lot of long-time, long-held false Hollywood beliefs and paradigms.”

Considering he is one of the top black Hollywood actors, a praise from Will Smith himself carries a lot of weight.

Since the movie’s US premiere on Feb. 16, it has earned $242 million from the domestic box office and $426 million worldwide (about P12.6 and P22.2 billion, respectively), according to Box Office Mojo.

Movie review website Rotten Tomatoes gave “Black Panther” a 96 percent Certified Fresh rating.  /ra
