Message 2: Akuna matata

Subject: Akuna matata

The actor who voiced the mandrill in THE LION KING was interviewed on the
radio recently and was asked about that language. The actor--I don't recall
his name, but he starred in the sitcom "Benson"--said he made it all up;
it was based on all kinds of singing that he had heard over the years,
Caribbean, African, American, etc., and it just came out naturally.
