    Haha, it means no worries! 
    More specifically it's literal Swahili meaning is -
    "There are no worries"

    Hakuna Matata is Swahili for "There are no worries."  We typically would say "no worries" or "no problem." 

    As the Lion King song says, "It means no worries for the rest of your days..."

    I have a friend that speaks fluent Swahili and this is confirmed, it means no worries

    If the Lion King was your favorite, then you should know what it means!  It's in the song...no worries!

    Now I have the Lion King stuck on my mind!

    Swahili (or Kiswahili): Here there are no concerns; No worries; Don't Worry; Chill (loosely). Hakuna Matata term is mostly used in Kenya

    In more detail:
    Kuna: there is (Swahili)
    Hakuna: there is not (Swahili)
    Matata: Problem (Plural)(Swahili)
    Literally means 'There are no problems'
