Worlasi, the musician has issued a new record offering counsel on using smartphones in a way that is healthy and productive.
The sing is christened “Screen Time.”
Mixed and mastered by Qube, ‘SKREEN TIME’ is written, performed, and produced by the Nukata man, who also rendered animation duties on the project.
“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,” observes Worlasi.
“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. 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 admonishes, proferring a six-point response to frequently asked questions on why people put pressure on themselves because of digital social lives:
1. Ask yourself what you are really connecting to.
2. How many of your TAPS on likes are genuine?
3. Is it for business, for fame, for attention, for money, or because you are insecure?
4. Does it make you feel any better?
5. Are you getting healthier mentally and emotionally?
6. Are you connecting to real people or fake people?
The song is available on all notable digital platforms.
