Maxwell obsessed with ‘Black Panther’ star Danai Gurira

The 44-year-old musician said he has been a long-time fan of the actor

Singer Maxwell says he has “a bit of an obsession” with Black Panther star Danai Gurira.

The 44-year-old musician said he has been a long-time fan of the actor since her The Walking Dead days, Page Six reported.

Maxwell, who walked the red carpet of the Marvel film premiere here, said he would like to take Gurira on a dinner date.

“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,” he said.

Gurira plays Okoye, the head of the Dora Milaje, the personal body guards of the Black Panther in the Ryan Coogler-directed film.

The Pretty Wings singer went on to say, “Danai is so bada**. I have not seen the movie, so I am walking in blank. I am just happy that there is a movie celebrating our culture.”
