Weezer FINALLY Covers Toto’s “Africa”

Yes, Weezer fans have been asking for this,  and no, I don’t know why..

There has been a long-running Twitter page run by a Weezer fan, @weezerafrica which literally says “I jokingly told Weezer to cover Africa and now it’s my thing. The original ”   But it picked up steam, and here we are. Weezer  finally shared a cover of Toto’s 1982 hit “Africa.”



Toto’s  Steve Lukather  even tweeted his love with a “Very flattered and thanks Weezer.”

Never let anyone tell you that you can’t follow your dreams kids.  One day, you TOO could get a band to cover a song that everyone wishes they could forget. 🙂
