Hmm, struggling to translate this. In Angola they speak portugese. Sem means without, and I can't find makas in any dictionaries, apart from maca which can mean litter (among other things) so, perhaps it roughly translates to...

Without mess

Maybe?

Hi, i'm Angolan, "Sem makas" means "No problems". Or..."Sem" - Without; "Maka - Angolan traditional expression" that means "Problem"

See you

"Sem Makas" means "Piece Of Cake". It's a natural saying in Angola.

I like the idea.
In terms of art direction, how about playing with the background tones so that the colours don't clash?
The light washes out the photograph and the boxes are a little hard to see....

Yes it's a popular saying, but "Piece of Cake" isn’t the accurate translation I’m afraid.
“ sem makas” in Angolan slang means “without problems “
Sem: without
Makas: problems.
