Toto's Africa to play in Namib Desert 'for all eternity'

Max Siedentopf's

It's not clear exactly where the art installation lives.

If the installation's endless playback of "Africa" you taking pity on any desert creatures forced to listen in, the artist admits the installation's endless loop isn't quite so endless.

But that all changed past year, thanks to one Internet user who just had to tempt Weezer to cover it, giving them one of their biggest hits, and turning the goddamn song into an Internet meme ...

The 1982 track is quadruple platinum, and was the most streamed song in 2017, with over 440m views on YouTube.

Namibian-German artist Max Siedentopf has set up a sound installation somewhere in the Namib Desert in the coastal areas of Namibia, which consists of six speakers attached to an MP3 that only has one song on it: Toto's Africa.

When asked by Pirro about the story, Trump said he and Putin had "a great conversation". "That meeting is up for grabs". The bureau also began a probe of whether or not the president committed obstruction of justice by firing Comey.

Michael Cohen to Testify Publicly Before House
They focused instead on what they asserted was anti-Trump bias in the Justice Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation . President Donald Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen said on Thursday he has agreed to testify publicly before a U.S.

"I was very intrigued by this and wanted to pay the song the ultimate homage and physically exhibit "Africa" in Africa", Siedentopf told NPR. He wants "to keep Toto going for all eternity".

Siedentopf told the BBC that some Namibians "love it", while others have told him it's the "the worst sound installation ever".

Sigh, it used to be that Toto's "Africa" was one of the more obscure hits to appreciate.

Anyone hoping to track down the installation will likely need to acquire a leave of absence from work first; on his website, Siedentopf indicates its "approximate location" by circling the entire Namib Desert in red. He added that he considers both responses "a great compliment".

Only the most dedicated of Toto fans will be able to find the artwork.
