Angela Bassett stuns in a pristine white ensemble at The Women of Wakanda event

As her hit sequel Black Panther: Wakanda Forever closes in on $500 million domestic and $900 million worldwide, star Angela Bassett stepped out to celebrate the sequel.

The 64-year-old actress, who plays Queen Ramonda in the blockbuster sequel, was all smiles on the red carpet for The Women of Wakanda event, held at San Vicente Bungalows in West Hollywood, California on Monday.

She was joined by Black Panther: Wakanda Forever director Ryan Coogler, costume designer Ruth E. Carter, production designer Hannah Beachler and hair stylist Camille Friend – just days after revealing she was proud of her 16-year-old son Slater for apologizing for a prank video where he told his parents that her co-star Michael B. Jordan had died, as part of a new TikTok trend.

Bassett returned as Ramonda, the mother of the late Chadwick Boseman’s character T’challa, in the successful sequel Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

The sequel opened to a massive $181.3 million in November, and it has currently amassed $445.5 million domestic and $831.2 million worldwide.

There has been no indication yet if a third Black Panther movie will happen, though given Wakanda Forever’s success, it certainly seems likely.

Bassett and her 16-year-old son Slater made headlines on New Year’s Eve with a TikTok video where he told his mother and father, actor Courtney B. Vance, that Michael B. Jordan was dead, which caused Bassett to come running towards him in disbelief.

Slater would later delete the video and he posted an apology on New Year’s Day, stating, ‘I would sincerely like to apologize for taking part in such a harmful trend.’

‘I apologize to Michael B. Jordan’s entire family, his extended family and Michael directly as he is an idol of mine and taking part in a trend like this is completely disrespectful,’ Slater added.

‘I don’t wish any bad ramifications of my actions upon his family nor my parents as they deserve none of the backlash. I own this was a mistake and I hope this can be a teaching lesson to anyone else who uses social media as a tool and a source of entertainment to truly understand that your actions can have consequences that extend beyond you,’ he added.

Last week, Bassett told ET at the Palm Springs International Film Festival’s Creative Impact Awards, ‘We all make mistakes, own up to them, take responsibility. and then hold your head up and move forward.’

She added that the TikTok trend was, ‘harmful’ adding it was a ‘teachable lesson’ for her child.
