Many have called Toto’s 1983 single “Africa” one of the worst songs ever written. However, it may be experiencing a second wave of popularity among millennials, reports FOX News.
Even though “Africa” is still played on oldies stations, the song is very popular among millennials as well. However, it wasn’t always critically acclaimed. Rolling Stone bashed the album it appeared on and the Guardian referred to it as having some of the worst lyrics of all time.
Despite this criticism, Toto is still cashing in from the song and drawing in a younger audience.
