"CBS This Morning" raised eyebrows on Tuesday when it played Toto's "Africa" while previewing an upcoming segment about Nelson Mandela's memorial services.

The show played the hit 80s rock song to footage of people paying tribute to Mandela in South Africa, before cutting to commercial break.

NPR's Eric Deggans noticed the questionable choice, tweeting:

Watch the clip in the video above (via Dorsey Shaw). Ironically, "CBS This Morning" did discuss how Mandela affected social change using music that morning.
