Michael B. Jordan certainly has a way with youth. After offering to pay to replace the retainer of one excited teen fan, he’s now sent an 8-year-old boy an encouraging message that made the young boy’s entire year.
Adonis Wolfe is the son of Jenaiya Coleman and after he went to see Jordan as Erik Killmonger in “Black Panther,” he hasn’t been quiet about the actor since.
Coleman captured her son’s appreciation for Jordan, who also thinks the actors “Creed” character, Adonis Johnson is named after him, on a video he shared on Instagram.
“I’m a big fan of Michael B. Jordan,” he says. “Thank you for playing Adonis in Creed and playing Killmonger in ‘Black Panther.’ Have a great day, thank you.”
After tagging the video with Jordan as her #ManCrushMonday, two fan accounts picked up the clip and it made it’s way to Jordan himself. He sent the mom a video message in response telling the youngster to stay true to his dreams.
“If you work hard, listen to your mother and do all your work, especially your schoolwork, you can be … whatever you want to be — a doctor, engineer, lawyer, mechanic, biologist,” Jordan says. ” Whatever you put your mind to, you can achieve.”
“Adonis was so excited, he cried!” Coleman told Knox News Tuesday, March 6. “Now he believes I have superpowers and wants to meet him!”
“I appreciate Michael for taking out the time in his busy schedule to send my son this video,” she added. “It made his whole 2018!”
