The cast of Black Panther is out here making money moves (hello, $426 million worth, to be exact) and drawing attention from every direction. So it’s not shocking that the beautiful Danai Gurira (who plays the fierce warrior Okoye in the film) has got an admirer on her hands that wants to take her out on a date.
Singer Maxwell chatted it up with Page Six at a New York screening of the film about his plans to try and court Ms. Gurira. “The woman I would want to wine and dine from the film is Danai Gurira, but she might be taken. I used to watch her on The Walking Dead, so I do have a bit of an obsession with her – and we share the same barber, by the way, so it could actually work out.”
Danai, who shaved her head for the role, looks bomb AF with a short cut (a very different departure from her the long dreads she rocked as Michonne on The Walking Dead). So is that Maxwell’s type? Well, not exactly. “I don’t care. I just love women…Danai is so badass. I have not seen the movie, so I am walking in blank. I am just happy that there is a movie celebrating our culture.”
What do we think? Should Danai make that hotline bling and give Maxwell a call?
Maybe Maxwell could woo Danai with a rendition of “Fortunate” like he did at Dear Mama.
