CBS Picks Toto’s ‘Africa’ Instead Of South African Music To Remember Mandela (VIDEO)

Searching for a song to play behind images of the memorial service for Nelson Mandela on Tuesday, someone at CBS’ morning show, “CBS This Morning,” chose Toto’s “Africa.”

As Gawker pointed out, the song was once described by a band member as “a white boy is trying to write a song on Africa, but since he’s never been there, he can only tell what he’s seen on TV or remembers in the past.”
