Lea Salonga was beyond thrilled for her daughter Nicole, who personally met one of the cast members of the hit movie “Black Panther” on Sunday.

As seen in Salonga's Instagram post, Angela Bassett, who played the queen of Wakanda in the Marvel Studios movie, went backstage to meet the cast of “Once on This Island” after she watched the show in New York.

As Salonga was telling Bassett that her daughter is such a huge fan of “Black Panther,” Nicole emerged from a room and knelt down before the American actress the Wakanda way.

Delighted by the gesture, Bassett erupted into cheers and gave Nicole a tight hug before planting a kiss on her forehead.

Salonga, who was very happy for her daughter, caught the whole thing on video.

“So THIS happened tonight after the show!!! My daughter knelt to Wakanda’s Queen Mother!!! Thank you for your kindness Angela!!! We were so honored by your presence,” she wrote.

Salonga also accompanied her caption with the hashtag “Wakanda Forever.”
