The Twitter account Weezer Cover Africa By Toto (opens in new tab) has long been urging the band to release their take on the classic 1982 hit.
Now Rivers Cuomo and co. have finally shared their take on the song… but only after Weezer trolled the fan by first covering Toto’s Rosanna.
The @WeezerCoverAfrica account responded to the Rosanna release last week saying: “After months of trolling them, Weezer trolled me back.”
And earlier today, when Weezer launched a stream of Africa, the fan account reacted: “I don’t know what’s next. Just let me enjoy this for a while.
“Looks like Weezer finally blessed the rains…”
Weezer have yet to comment, simply adding a link to the cover over on Facebook (opens in new tab).
Listen to both Africa and Rosanna covers below.
