Frans Duijts as Ali B

Frans Duijts (born May 10, 1979 in Etten-Leur), is a Dutch singer and former André Hazes-imitator [1]

Biography[edit]

Duijts began his singing career as an André Hazes imitator. But because of the success of the song Je denkt maar dat je alles mag van mij (You think that everything you do is alright with me), a cover of an André Hazes song from 1986 (written by Pierre Kartner), Duijts decided to increase his focus on his own singing career. Meanwhile Duijts already had six hits in the Single Top 100. His album Zo ben ik mezelf (This way I can be myself) was a great success, and remained in the Album Top 100 for the maximum allowed chart-time of two years. Besides singing, he also works in the family business, a demolition company in Tiel.

In 2009 Duijts received the prize for the Nederpop hit with the most plays in pubs and restaurants in that year for his single Je denkt maar dat je alles mag van mij.[2]
