Michael B. Jordan Sends Supportive Message to 8-Year-Old Fan

Actor Michael B. Jordan sent a sweet message of support to a pint-sized fan.

Jenaiya Coleman recorded her 8-year-old son, Adonis Wolfe, sending a message of thanks to Jordan for playing Adonis Creed in Creed and Killmonger in Black Panther.

“I hope to see Creed 2 in November,” said Wolfe, who shares a name with Jordan’s character in the boxing movie. “I’m a big fan of Michael B. Jordan.”

Coleman told Knox News that her son “fell in love” with Jordan after seeing his role in Black Panther. 

The video made its way to the actor and he recorded a message for Wolfe.

“If you work hard, listen to your mother and do all your work, especially your schoolwork,” Jordan said. “You can be … whatever you want to be —a doctor, engineer, lawyer, mechanic, biologist. … Whatever you put your mind to, you can achieve.”

Coleman said her son got emotional when he saw Jordan’s message to him.

“Adonis was so excited he cried,” she said. “I appreciate Michael for taking out the time in his busy schedule to send my son this video. It made his whole 2018!”
