Marlon Wayans Celebrates His Brother’s Birthday With Emotional Message

American actor Marlon Wayans has shared a classy photo of himself and him brother’s “Keenen Ivory Wayans” on certified Instagram page, and celebrated his brother’s 61th birthday with touching letter.

Here his letter:

“Happy birthday to my big brother @keenenivorywayansgrowing up we all had our favorite super hero Batman, Superman, Spiderman … mine was big brother Keenen. You’ve done so much for our family. Beyond being an example you’ve been a mentor and a teacher, a brother yet a father figure.

A realist that never squandered our dreams. You taught us that it’s okay to dream your biggest dream and as long as you are willing to do the work it can be accomplished. So much wisdom and jewels you bestowed upon me… “success is a simple formula hardwork + determination + opportunity = success. Reach for the stars and fail at the moon. Stay a student.

If want to make it in this industry as a person of color you can’t just be an actor or a writer or a producer you have to be a force of nature. Failure only happens when you quit trying. Good is only good enough for those that can’t be great. Maximize your potential. Don’t be afraid to fail. Everything happens for a reason. And countless other lessons about the industry and even more lessons in the most important industry… LIFE.

I look at ILC and i think of all of us that benefited from your wisdom, your genius, your belief in all of us to reach our fullest potential. I have been in this industry for 30+ years and I’m still evolving, still learning, still growing, still a student, still honing my skills, still getting ready, still preparing for when my number is called to showcase the great that i have nurtured and working to become. And thanks to you i have no frustration, i have no anxiety and i have no doubt that I’m preparing for greatness.

I know I’m crazy, i know i work at a feverish pace, i know i take the weight of the world on my shoulders but I’m only doing what i was taught by the example that you have been to our tribe. All i do will always be to make my big brother proud.

Thank you for all the smiles, gifts, hugs, trips, knowledge, girl advice, lessons, spankings (yes there were 2), and all of the confidence you’ve instilled in this little boy. My love and respect for you goes beyond words Ivory. You’re a God send. And how lucky am i to be your baby brother who grew up in the house with his super hero. ❤️ Bambino.”
