As for the location of the installation, all that's known is that it's somewhere in the Namib Desert.

But that all changed a year ago, 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 single went quadruple platinum in its release in 1982 and keeps having fitful returns to music charts.

A German artist has set up a musical oasis in a secret spot in the Namib desert, with the song "Africa" repeating on an endless loop, according to CNN.

She also had placenta accreta in both pregnancies, which occurs when the placenta attaches too deeply in the uterine wall. She has been open over the years about her struggles to get pregnant and documented the process on the show.

"I set up a sound installation which pays tribute to probably the most popular song of the last four decades: Toto - Africa", Siedentopf wrote on one of his posts on his unverified Instagram page. "I think that's a great compliment".

It was recently covered by Pitbull for the new superhero film Aquaman, with the rapper adding lyrics about Banksy.

Though Africa is named after the continent, the song has turned more into a soothing anthem for Americans that speaks to the ideals of Africa.

"Most parts of the installation were chosen to be as durable as possible, but I'm sure the harsh environment of the desert will devour the installation eventually", he said.

Until then, only the most loyal Toto fans will be able to find this "treasure" among the sands, Mr Siedentopf says.

The artist told the BBC he hopes the song will play for another 55 million years, but realizes that's highly unlikely.
