Someone Played Toto’s Africa On Sweet Potatoes and a Squash


Toto’s Africa is practically an anthem at this point (we’ll try to ignore the fact that Pitbull actually was a part of a version). It’s no surprise that numerous covers have come out of the epic song, from acapella versions to acoustic versions. However, the one that really surprised us, was when YouTuber Pupsi played Africa with sweet potatoes and a squash (no, we’re not kidding).

Professional ocarina carver Pupsi (a.k.a. Toni Patanen) manages to hit the notes of the evergreen number – and he shows us a bit of the carving process as well. Check out the video below.

In case you’re wondering, Pupsi is taking requests, so we’re sure that it won’t be long before other classics are recreated using vegetables. Head to his YouTube page to get your favorite up next. Oh, and we apologise for the fact that Africa will be stuck in your head for the next couple of days.
