It is spoken by various communities living in the African Great lakes regions including countries such as Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Mozambique and Congo. So, The phrase shot into popular culture with the song by the pop group of the 1980s Boney M their song “Jambo – Hakuna Matata”, it was reinforced into pop culture from the film The Lion King in 1994. Simba the lead character in the movie is taught by his mentors to Hakuna Matata, that is not to have worries and live in the present, and forget his troubled past. 

Leave behind your worries and live in the present, as did Simba. So, Simba has a troubled past where his father Mustafa is killed by his younger brother Scar, and Simba is led to believe that he is responsible for his father’s death. Thus, post a fierce battle young Simba is able to regain his legacy and position as the leader of his tribe and kingdom.  If Simba could do it, so can you.
