Connie Chiume Glitters At The “Black Panther 2” Premiere With Rihanna

Many see her as the poster lady of the successful black actress – ageing gracefully yet still relevant on the music scene and working alongside some of the top names in the industry. Meet the much-loved Connie Chiume.

The celebrated actress and filmmaker was part of the initial Black Panther flick of 2018, which featured the likes of John Kani and Atandwa Kani. And the late Chadwick Boseman.

The years have passed but the actress is still relevant in the film scene. In fact, she was present in Los Angeles for the world premkiere of Black Panther 2. There she met some notables, including Michael B Jordan, Rihanna, Angela Bassett, and Lupita Nyong’o.

She also met fellow South African actress Nomzamo Mbatha and the celebrated Nigerian singer Burna Boy. Taking to her verified Instagram page much later, she shared pictures of her encounters, describing God as “phenomenal” in one of them (the picture with Rihanna). Here are some of the photos of the meeting.

She should know, perhaps. After all, one can barely point to a South African actress of her age (70) who is still relevant on the international film scene.

Now you know why many see her as the poster lady of the successful black actress.
