Thanks To Weezer, Toto Doesn't Understand Why "Africa" is So Hot Right Now

September 24, 2018

Weezer made Toto's "Africa" hot again. And it's STILL on fire. A music venue in the U.K. just announced it's going to play the song on a continuous loop from 11:00 P.M. to 4:00 A.M. on November 30th. Toto's Steve Lukather doesn't get it. He Tweeted, quote, "This could be worse than waterboarding !!  lol. I mean WTF is going on with this tune?

"I mean it's been GREAT for us in many ways but we recorded this as a deep cut track in 1981. NO idea what it would become! (pun intended)  You think YOU are sick of it?  But . . . it's a gift now."
