Moroccan dialect: ما شكماه


Senior Member
French, Mor/Hijz Arabic (heritage)

ما شكماه in Morocco means "it is not a problem" or "I don't mind" (like ما عليه/ما عليهش or لا بأس) and I wonder what could be its etymology. I feel it is made of ما شي كما هو though I can't figure out the link between this expression and the sentence. Any idea?

Thank you.
