Weezer Releases Cover of ‘Africa’ After Social Media Push

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 90s 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.
