So some lady who goes by the Twitter handle @weezerafrica has been tweeting Weezer for several months trying to get them to record their own version of Toto's Africa; well, they finally did it! And the guys from Toto love it too!
Steve Lukather, the guitarist, singer, songwriter, and producer of Toto even responded!
Very flattered and thanks Weezer.— Steve Lukather (@stevelukather) May 29, 2018
We recorded this -2nd take NO rehearsal in 1981.
Not that anyone cares.. hahaha.
We were kids. Lived in the studio working on our stuff and every session in LA. Best times ever! Hope we meet someday.
Unless you hate us. hahaha
And just for fun here's the original by Toto...
