Stranded in the Jungle, by the Cadets (1956)

The Watusi was a popular dance in 1962, started by this hit by the Orlons, but even Lawrence Welk got caught up in the Watusi dance craze

The Lion Sleeps Tonight by the Tokens (1962) was a cover of Wemoweh,

The Tokens' hit was a cover of the 1939 South African song, Wemoweh,

Pete Seeger and the Weavers first covered Wemoweh in 1952

The first actual African music to make the hit parade was Skokiaan, played by a band that worked the dining room in a hotel in Bulawayo, the second city in Southern Rhodesia, which is now Zimbabwe. The original 1947 version by the Bulawayo Sweet Rhythm Band, once released and aired in Britain and the US, was covered by dozens of artists.
