Lupita Nyong’o Salutes Chadwick Boseman By Recreating His Rolling Stone Cover

*Lupita Nyong’o decided to go all-out in congratulating her “Black Panther” co-star Chadwick Boseman on his new Rolling Stone cover.

The Oscar winner took to Instagram Monday with a recreation of his cover shot – down to the bare chest.

“Imitation is the best form of flattery: @chadwickboseman I admire your quiet, confident, regal nature. You brought the wealth of all your knowledge, wisdom and physicality to T’Challa,” the Oscar winner, 34, captioned her side-by-side comparison shot.

Boseman channeled his title role for the Rolling Stone cover photographed by Norman Jean Roy, while Nyong’o tapped the essence of her character Nakia for the remix photographed by her hairstylist Vernon François.

“You led us into the land of Wakanda without ego, without pretense, without fear. We reap the benefits now squarely because of your courage, your fierce dedication, your intense passion, and your grueling workout regimen,” Nyong’o continued.

“We celebrate BREAKING BOX OFFICE RECORDS with @blackpanther for many reasons, but chief among them is because we had you as our king. Enkosi Kumkani!! And congratulations on your @rollingstone cover. From someone who loves you,” said the actress, who plays Boseman’s on-screen love interest.

And I will never get enough of the way you say the word “because.” We celebrate BREAKING BOX OFFICE RECORDS with @blackpanther for many reasons, but chief among them is because we had you as our king. Enkosi Kumkani!! And congratulations on your @rollingstone cover. From someone who loves you. #CoverCosplay My ? by @vernonfrancois Chadwick’s by Norman Jean Roy #BlackPanther #WakandaForever
