The amount of time an individual spends using a device with a screen such as a smartphone is gradually becoming an issue of major concern.
As a result of the incessant digital social lifestyles of individuals, Ghanaian musician Worlasi readies new single titled ‘Skreen Time’ to give counsel on how to stay healthy and productive whilst enjoying one’s screen time.
The multi-talented musician states six answers to frequently asked on why people put pressure on themselves because of digital social lives.
The release of the new single is scheduled for March 25, 2020, on all notable digital platforms.
Mixed and mastered by Qube, ‘Skreen Time’ is written, performed, produced and animated by Worlasi.
“We live two lives ‒ a virtual and a real. With time we’ve seen so many of our social connections being moved from the real to the virtual, others virtual to real ‒ some out of opportunity, others out of convenience. Now we are forced to stay indoors, reduce our real-life interactions to a minimum and more than ever we are glued to our screens ‒ to read the news, to socialize, to distract ourselves, to work, the virtual space is our home, our social life, for the time being,” Worlasi said ahead of the release.
“Notice how you interact with your phone, notice how your screen time affects you: what makes you press hold with a smile, what makes you throw your phone away angered, with a frown and a fast-beating heart? Like in real life, be mindful about your virtual home ‒ who and what you want to let in or rather kick out. But now that we don’t have a choice but to meet here, has something changed?” he asked.
