It looks to me like the only thing keeping Black Panther going are the massive amounts of propaganda, the crossovers and the hype. Once all this goes way Black Panther will get cancelled.

If that's what it takes to keep it from being cancelled.

We may love the Black Panther, but he's not a hugely popular character. So you have to do something to increase his exposure to readers who would never normally pick up his book, and just writing "good" stories isn't enough. Never has been (for this character), never will be.

And left to survive on his own it'll end up how it did the last time -- well written, but sold poorly.

Now it's moderately-well written and sells moderately-well.

(And, yes, if Priest had had all of these crossovers and promotions his run probably would have sold better than the current one. Unfortunately, he didn't.)
