Wimoweh: The story behind the song " The Lion Sleeps Tonight"
There have been many versions of this song from Pete Seeger’s version in 1952 (titled “Wimoweh”) to the Tokens’ No. 1 single in 1961 to the hugely popular Disney film and Broadway musical The Lion King. But its origin dates back to 1939 to man named Solomon Linda and a song called Mbube.
