Weezer releases cover of ‘Africa’ after social media push
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Weezer has released a cover of Toto’s “Africa” after a teenage fan pressed the group for months on social media to record the song.
The teen, known as @weezerafrica, jokingly started lobbying the 1990s band on Twitter in December. The campaign gained followers.
Weezer released a cover of Toto’s “Rosanna” on May 24. But the teen was not satisfied. The group rolled out “Africa” on Tuesday.
