The Opposites

Twan van Steenhoven (Big 2) is tall and white while Willem de Bruin (Willy) is a short person of colour. Hence The Opposites. Other than that they have everything in common. They are natives of North Holland’s polder but their sound is that of the street. It all started at school when Willem had to write a rap as a punishment and Twan came to his aid. They started out rapping in English but that didn’t work out, while Dutch did, including in Flanders. ‘Broodje Bakpao’ (2009) was their breakthrough thanks to the support of radio presenter Sam De Bruyn. They stopped in 2014, but a reunion show was such a hit that the pair decided to continue, bit by bit. That’s a good thing, as Willy and Big 2 are hilarious when joking about their cultural differences. Foul-mouthed and politically correct at the same time.
