Back in my youth I wrote a parody of "Africa" called "Algebra" (basically about how much I hated algebra). I'm sure Al could improve on that.


Maybe Al finally got the chance to sit down and watch Black Panther recently and liked it so much he wanted to write a Toto Africa parody about it?

Maybe he figured it would work because the film turned out to be massively popular and made boatloads of money?

Maybe he decided this was the right time to revive the trend of writing parodies of classic rock songs about them current hit movies (see Yoda, Jurassic Park, TSB etc) that he seems to have let fall by the wayside since "Ode To A Superhero"?

This is me predicting there will not be a parody of "Africa" about Black Panther.

Yeah, I know there's enough reasons for him NOT to do this besides just the fact that enough months have gone by since the film's release to make it seem too oddly dated. That didn't seem to be a concern of his when he wrote OTAS but times are different now and peoples' memories and attention spans are getting shorter by the minute.
