She revealed that “Mahaba” is a love song, about the ups and down in romantic relationships and ultimately about appreciation and forgiveness.
She says the concept behind the music video, is just a storyline to follow the song’s title about a couple that had issues and the lady felt like quitting the relationship but the guy wont give way due to the good times they both shared together.
On her Choice of “One Shot Media” to direct the music video, Gal Dee revealed that she’s been working with the music video director, from her very first music video till now because she believes that that’s the best video director in Kenya.
She cites her song “Mahaba” as the most inspirational song to her, because she feels the chorus is just too powerful.
“Mahaba”, a song sang in her native Kenyan Language, is translated in English to mean, “i’m used to your love, i’m used to you, misunderstanding is normal and please i need your forgiveness”.
According to Gal Dee “Mahaba” is a song anybody can sing and relate to. Though she sings Zouk, Afro-fusion and Bounce, Gal Dee is currently working on recording an Afrobeat song.

Gal Dee attended high school in Kenya, but she is currently a medical student in Germany.
When asked on how she intend to reach out to other Africans who dont speak her language through songs.
Gal Dee explained, that music is universal. Making reference to her voice which she informs can transmit melodies to the listeners who dont even understand the words being said in the songs.
She also believes through her videos messages can as well be passed across.
Gal Dee is very optimistic that the future of African music in Europe is big enough considering the uniqueness it connotes to differentiate itself from the European style.
From her own experience she informed, that majority in Europe especially in Germany where she reside on listening to African songs for the first time easily gets drawn to the unique sound, rhythm and beat dancing with so much excitement.
Another aspect during her interview, was her thought on the Kenyan music industry, which she says is a big multicultural melting point, because she says they are so open and doing every kind of music, whether local, African, or international.
But in fairness she thinks the music industry in Kenya, still has room to grow nevertheless, with a lot of potentials available at their disposal.
