Nakupenda means Love in Swahili

In the Swahili language, the word Nakupenda means you are in love.

Nakupenda is pronounced just as its spelled Na-ku-pen-da. Swahili is a relatively simple language to learn, mostly because words are pronounced as they are written.

Hakuna matata is the most popular quote and means no worries.

The phrase gained international recognition after it was used in the animated movie The Lion King.

Meet the Author.

Being African in America I have grown up learning about different ethnic cultures. My mother is a historian of African culture and history and her influence expanded my activities to several best-selling cookbooks, magazine columns, self-branded products, and a popular African culture and food blog.
