Once the dust settled and reality set in, the 23-year-old actor released the  following statement to TSR:

Portraying Tariq St. Patrick in the ‘Power’ universe has been an incredible journey.

‘Power’ has been an amazing platform, opening doors for young actors like myself, and I’m truly grateful for that.

While the ending of ‘Book II’ may feel abrupt and disappointing, I choose to view it as a stepping stone for many of us as we transition into the next chapter of our careers.
