Weezer cover Toto’s ‘Africa’ with Toto keyboardist Steve Porcaro
Following the major success of their Toto cover, WeezerJimmy Kimmel Live to perform their rendition alongside Toto keyboardist Steve Porcaro.
The Toto cover came after months of campaigning from Weezer fans who demanded that the band put their spin on ‘Africa’. Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo played a bunch of covers during a solo show in Chicago which came part of a 27-song. Notably though, a rendition of ‘Africa’ was missing. With disappointment lingering, a 14-year old named Mary started the campaign and opened up popular Twitter account @WeezerAfrica.
It just so happened that the cover has ended up being Weezer’s highest charting song since 2009 having entered the Billboard Hot 100 Charts at number 89.
