How ridiculously white and ridiculous is CBS News? When looking for some music to play over footage of Mandela’s wife grieving as well as many others, these dopes picked that 80’s tune by Toto which happened to be called “Africa.”
Yeah, they picked a song that had “Africa” in the title which was written by a white band who had never been to Africa before. Even Toto’s lead singer thought it was a bad idea. “If I had been asked for sync approval, the answer would have been a decline,” song co-writer David Paich said.
You know it’s not like the continent of Africa doesn’t have music. No, they have to bring in 80’s white guy interpretation of African music. I wonder if some Jamaican dignitary dies, maybe CBS could play some UB40.
