Serghei Platanov, the photographer who originally shot a photo of an egg that defeated Kylie Jenner’s record for the most-liked image on Instagram, told INSIDER he was shocked his photo became a phenomenon.

“My goal was to take a simple picture of an egg. For fun. Never ever I could think that it would be a sensation like this,” Platanov wrote in an email. “Egg is just an egg.”

Platanov originally posted the egg photo on Shutterstock, where he uploads photos of richly colored food on stark white backgrounds under the handle gresei . The title was simple and elegant: “eggs isolated on white background.”

On January 4, the person running the Instagram account @world_record_egg posted Platanov’s photo in a bid to get it the most-liked image on the platform.

“Lets set a world record together and get the most liked post on Instagram,” they wrote. “Beating the current world record held by Kylie Jenner (18 million)! We got this.”

Much to Jenner’s chagrin, the account succeeded . Its tally is now at more than 45 million likes.

Platanov said he doesn’t use social media, so he wasn’t aware his photo went viral until other people told him about it.

“I do not use social networks,” he wrote. “It was unexpected for me to find out about such a meme campaign when people started reaching out to me, and it was even more incredible to find out about the number of likes that this meme scored.”

He also said that his photo doesn’t pretend to be anything other than a simple brown egg. Therein lies its beauty.

“It does not pretend to be an image for getting fans, it does not pretend to be a Faberg egg or imagining ‘Would I look better if I am colored for Easter, what color fits me best,'” he wrote. “It is not hunting for anyones attention. It is simple egg.”

Mass defection in Jigawa state on fire as election nears.

APC vs PDP - 2019 Elections: Defection galore hits Jigawa

As the general elections draw closer, gale of defection hits Jigawa polity, investigation by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) has revealed.

The investigation revealed that a number of Political heavy weights have recently defected from Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the ruling All progressives Congress (APC).

The investigation in Dutse on Friday showed that among those who allegedly defected include first civilian governor of the state, Alhaji Ali Sa’ad Birnin Kudu, former Senator for Jigawa NorthWest, Alhaj Danladi Sankara.

Others were former commissioners, special advisers, and members of the state and National Assembly who failed to secure tickets to re-contest.

The Former Deputy Governor during the administration of Lamido, Alhaji Ahmad Muhammad was also among the defectors and is currently the campaign Director-General of the incumbent governor, Alhaji Muhammad Badaru.

Mr Suleiman Bulus of the PDP said that the defectors are not politicians but people who are hungry, looking for something to eat because they are not true politicians.

”I am assuring you, anytime if PDP wins elections, the same people will still come back and meet us, I tell you,

”There is no cause for alarm, PDP will still recapture Jigawa this year, we don’t want to talk too much, just wait and see,” Bulus said.

In a swift reaction, Chieftain of APC in Jigawa, Alhaji Ishaq Hadejia, popularly known as Baba Ishaq, dismissed the claim that PDP will still capture Jigawa in the upcoming elections.

”That is a dream; we have already killed and buried PDP in Jigawa, that is just an empty outburst,

”PDP will not do anything in Jigawa it is because of the good leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari in the centre and governor Muhammad Badaru in Jigawa that people are defecting to our party on daily basis.

”The APC administration under present Buhari was able to fight, corruption, insecurity and unemployment.

”Buhari was able to achieve a lot in just about four years of his tenure which the PDP couldn’t in its 16 years of administration,” he said.

NAN gathered that PDP and Social Democratic Party (SDP) are in secret talk to enter into alliance to wrestle power from APC in the forthcoming elections.

Efforts to contact the state chairman of PDP, Alhaji Mahmoud Kuit and his DSP counterpart, Alhaj Abba Annas to comment on the issue failed as their mobiles lines were either switched off or unavailable.

Oshiomhole Under Pressure After Saying This About Buhari, After Live NTA Interview.

The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, has come under serious attack from Nigerians for describing the performance of President Muhammadu Buhari and his Vice, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, during their live interview on NTA last night, as “amazing.”

The former Labour leader was vehemently attacked by Twitter users after he posted “Amazing performance from both Mr President Buhari and VP Osinbajo. The team we trust to take us to the #NextLevel . #NgTheCandidates.”

President Buhari and Osinbajo’s performance at the interview aired on NTA had received wide range of criticism and some Twitter users wondered why the former Edo State Governor would think otherwise.
