A catchy phrase from the film The Lion King. Was briefly popular for a couple of years after the movie was released, but faded back into obscurity. It means, quite literally, "No worries" in Swahili. I still use it a lot and it drives my coworkers mad.

The phrase was part of a song, sung to Simba by Timon and Pumbaa in the film. It was their motto, at least until the sequel.

There's a Swahili expression which goes like this: Hakuna matete - hakuna matata.
I don't know about the Swahili spelling... but it sounds like that. Supposedly it means No breasts - no worries
The meaning of this is that women only cause problems and worries. That is not my opinion, though.
